New Survey Uncovers Surprising Cloud Networking Outages, Generative AI and Skills Gap Headwinds Facing Enterprises

Aviatrix will Preview the Results of its 2024 Secure Cloud Networking Field Report Exclusively at AWS re:Invent 2023 


SANTA CLARA, Calif. – November 20, 2023 – Aviatrix, a leader in Secure Cloud Networking, has conducted its annual survey of Aviatrix Certified Engineers (ACEs), which this year revealed surprising revelations from the cloud, networking, and security practitioners with boots on the ground.  


Among the key findings: 

  • When it comes to security, more than two times as many cloud network outages were caused by firewalls than by cyber attacks within respondents’ organizations in the last year.  
  • Respondents report that “cost controls” and “visibility and troubleshooting” are the two biggest hurdles to taking full advantage of public cloud. 
  • Even as generative AI initiatives skyrocketed in the past year, more than a third of respondents reported that those AI initiatives have not impacted cloud budgets or have even decreased them.  
  • The majority of companies surveyed have struggled to hire the necessary candidates to support cloud initiatives within their organization – and that number has stayed consistent year-over-year. 


This year’s survey included more than 400 global respondents spanning security, cloud, networking roles, with several reporting they hold more than one of these roles at their organization. More than half of the respondents were from enterprise organizations with more than 2,000 employees. 


Aviatrix will be offering an exclusive early look at the results of its 2024 Secure Cloud Networking Field Report exclusively at Amazon Web Services (AWS) re:Invent 2023 from November 27 – December 1 in Las Vegas, NV.
