Market Definition:

The WAN Edge Infrastructure Market size was valued at USD XX Million in 2020 and is predicted to reach XX Million in 2030 with CAGR of XX% from 2021-2030.

WAN Edge Infrastructure refers to networking and security infrastructure that allows organizations to establish network connectivity among distributed enterprise locations. In other words, it is a category of networking technology that enables connectivity among distributed IT resources. It delivers the connectivity through a mix of hardware and software that works in tandem to ensure reliability and security to the network.

With the increasing number of remote staff in many organizations, scalability and security became critical. WAN edge infrastructure provide Zero Trust network access (ZTNA) which adds a layer of security to stop data breaches and provides users seamless and secure connectivity to private applications. It also provides network access via an exclusive portal which also works with open-source device agents like WireGuard or OpenVPN.

Market Dynamics and Trends:

Advances in automation and AI, have been pushing enterprises towards self-driving wide area network, which in turn boosts the expansion of the WAN edge infrastructure market. Also, WAN edge infrastructure helps companies to boost their cloud ability and increases the overall productivity as it enables organizations to access data from anywhere in the world.
