Orange Business is named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Asia/Pacific Communications Service Provider Secure Virtual Network Services 2023 Vendor Assessment (doc #AP49625122, May 2023). This study presents an assessment of eight communications service providers (SPs) that provide secure virtual network services in the region. The assessment is based on their current capabilities, go-to-market strategies, growth, innovation and plans for delivering secure virtual network services.

According to IDC analyst Nikhil Batra, “The Asia/Pacific region has witnessed a significant shift in software-defined networking, moving from SD-WAN to a more comprehensive range of secure virtual network services. This evolution is driven by the growing enterprise demand for flexible, reliable and secure access to cloud-native applications and distributed workloads and to address broader enterprise digital transformation initiatives. To this end, communications service providers are offering a broader range of services, including SASE framework-driven solutions that combine networking and security capabilities.”
