SASE Framework: Making the Case for Managed Services
Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) and Secure Service Edge (SSE) are two of the major technology trends to emerge from accelerated digital transformation, and they have helped enterprises respond to the new security challenges posed by hybrid work and cloud applications by deploying a Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) framework.

According to Sophos, 54% of companies say their IT departments are not sophisticated enough to handle advanced cyberattacks. And according to IDC, the driving reasons are lack of in-house skills and inability to keep pace with evolving technologies.

Enter: Managed services. Partnering with a managed services provider reduces the breadth of requirements associated with maintaining networks and security. By providing the technical skills, industry expertise and the ability to provide global professional services, managed service providers have emerged as a popular option for enterprises seeking to respond to the latest networking and security challenges.

But how does one build a solid business case for managed services? What services are best to outsource, and which are best to keep in-house? What are the metrics and ROI of managed services?

Join this session, SASE Framework: Making the Case for Managed Services, to learn more from the latest research about how to approach managed services in 2023 and beyond.

Discussion topics will include:

  • How to employ managed services today and measure your level of satisfaction;
  • How to identify your biggest business drivers to make the case for managed services;
  • Whether to opt for a fully or co-managed approach, and which services to keep in-house.

Join ISMG's Tom Field for a moderated discussion that will feature insight from Todd Kiehn, Senior Vice President, Product Management, at event sponsor GTT. This dinner roundtable will be: Chatham House Rule, peer driven and pitch free.
