Nordlayer’s Managing Director, Donatas Temelis, explained in a press release how the company has carried on its original name as VPNs are now one of many tools in its arsenal, saying:
“Our business model has carried the name forward as VPNs are now one of the components of our complete cybersecurity solutions. Our approach to cyber security for the digital enterprise, however, remains the same – we will continue to offer solutions based on cutting-edge technologies and adapt to changing business needs.
Nordlayer’s decision to accelerate towards SASE was determined by the direction of the cybersecurity industry which is increasingly cloud-based.
According to estimates by global research and advisory firm Gartner, the SASE industry is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 36 percent by 2025. At that point, cybersecurity firms unable to offer SASE will be forced to. To settle for niche market opportunities.
