The Secure Service Edge (SSE) market is heating up, according to a new report from market research firm Dell’Oro Group. The company says the SSE market grew 40% year-over-year to reach $800 million in revenue for the first calendar quarter of 2022.
SSE is a Gartner-coined acronym, so straight from the horse’s mouth: “Security service edge (SSE) secures access to the web, cloud services, and private applications. Capabilities include access control, threat protection, data security, security monitoring, and acceptable use control enforced by network-based and API-based integration. SSE is primarily delivered as a cloud-based service and may include on-premises or agent-based components.”
