Multicloud networking–the new reality of cloud adoption–is likely to see an early inflection point in enterprise adoption during 2024, in IDC's view. Multicloud networking is an architectural interconnection of public cloud, specialized cloud, and on-premises platforms at the infrastructure network and application services layers.


  • 65.7% of large enterprises (with 10,000 or more employees) typically use 60–80 security tools due in part to the dedicated tools necessary to address specific needs across multiple cloud environments (IDC’s North American Vendors and Tools Consolidation Survey, December 2023).

In this IDC Spotlight, you will learn the customer challenges, its trends, and the solutions for multicloud deployment and its security along with IDC’s analysis.
