Dubai-based BIOS Middle East adds VMware SD-WAN to managed services portfolio

Global market for SD-WAN to expand by 48 per cent annually from 2020 to 2027


Regional cloud and managed IT services provider BIOS Middle East has been approved to offer VMware SD-WAN to customers in the UAE and Saudi Arabia.

VMware SD-WAN enables access from branch or work-from-anywhere locations to cloud services, private data centres and SaaS-based enterprise applications. Its automated deployment simplifies branch wide-area networking while the utilisation of private, broadband internet, and LTE links improves performance for distributed enterprises.

Demand for SD-WAN is on the rise as enterprises become more mobile and seek better ways to circumvent the challenges posed by rapid digital transformation, a growing number of cloud-based applications, increased adoption of Internet of Things solutions, diverse network technologies and branch complexities.

The global market for SD-WAN is valued at $1.6bn in 2020 and is projected to reach $25.5bn by 2027, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 48 per cent over the period, according to a report by Research and Markets.

Besides, they will receive the benefits of having a provider that has a robust cloud footprint that leverages data centres in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Riyadh and soon Jeddah,” he added.
