In such a deployment model, the network hardware is still deployed locally, but the management function is migrated to the public cloud. Administrators can centrally manage the network through graphical methods, such as web pages or mobile terminal apps at any location. The business model also changes after the management function goes to the cloud, from the original one-time purchase to a subscription approach, by which the management function is implemented as software as a service (SaaS). This report provides the definition and research scope of cloud-managed networks, starting with user demands, and analyzes the value brought by the cloud-managed networks. As for the cloud-managed network market, the capacity of China's cloud management market from 2016 to 2020 is introduced, and the market is segmented from the perspectives of business models, types of charging models, application scenarios, and industry distribution. Finally, the report makes a forecast and analysis of China's cloud-managed network market by 2025, followed by market growth forecasts and analyses of trends of technologies and products.</P> Market Presentation Sun, 23 Jan 2022 05:00:00 GMT Xiangdong Hu IDC Perspective:现代软件定义安全市场观察 <P>本报告结合IDC软件定义安全访问(SDSA)理念,从多个行业客户和安全厂商视角阐述了现代安全软件在远程办公、多分枝接入、企业间协同、业务上云等工作模式新常态下的发展现状和未来趋势。IDC认为,虽然当前国内市场中包括零信任SDP、SASE、SD-WAN安全等在内的众多产品和解决方案仍需进一步补足完善,其在企业级客户核心业务中的深入和广泛应用也仍需更多实践的验证,但软件定义安全访问的理念和相关解决方案已经获得了市场的普遍关注和认可,正在企业网络安全防御体系中发挥着越来越重要的作用。</P><P>“包括中国在内的全球主要国家和地区对于网络安全、数据安全的监管力度持续加强,企业需要越来越多的安全产品和工具以符合政府/行业的安全合规要求,以及有效应对数字化转型过程中面临的日益复杂和频繁的网络威胁。未来中国市场对安全软件、安全服务的需求将日益旺盛,包含零信任SDP、身份感知代理(IAP)和Internet Overlay在内的软件定义安全访问(SDSA)解决方案展现出了整合型网络安全解决方案和技术架构的优势,能够帮助客户更好地满足新业务常态下对网络安全统一整体防护的要求。因此,IDC认为,现代软件定义安全将成为市场发展趋势。”——IDC 中国负责网络安全市场研究的研究经理赵卫京表示。</P> IDC Perspective Sun, 23 Jan 2022 05:00:00 GMT Austin Zhao Asia/Pacific (Excluding Japan) Foundational Cloud Services Forecast 2021-2025: The Base of the Digital-First Economy <P>This IDC Market Presentation provides a new perspective on the 2021‒2025 market trends and outlook for foundational infrastructure and platform cloud services.
