Streamline Your Network and Security with SASE: Unite SD-WAN,
CASB, FWaaS, ZTNA and More on a Cloud-Native Platform.
A Cloud Native Approach
Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) is a cloud-native solution that combines network security and cloud access in one unified platform. It enables organizations and users to securely access cloud and on-premise applications from anywhere, on any device. The benefits of SASE are numerous, including integrated threat protection, zero-trust security, optimized network performance for cloud-based applications, and simplified deployment and management. SASE is a cost-effective and scalable solution that can be tailored to meet the needs of businesses of all sizes.
Our team of specialists can help your organization choose the right SASE solution for your unique needs. We will work with you to understand your business requirements, evaluate your current infrastructure, and recommend the best SASE solution for your use case. We will also ensure a seamless integration of the SASE solution into your existing network, maximizing performance and minimizing disruption. With our expertise, you can be confident in your choice of SASE solution. Below are some reasons organizations are adopting the SASE model:
SASE consolidates network security and cloud access into one unified platform, making it easier to manage and more efficient. This eliminates the need for multiple, disparate security solutions, reducing complexity and increasing visibility.
Secure Access from Anywhere
SASE enables secure access to cloud and on-premise applications from anywhere, on any device. This increases mobility and flexibility for organizations and their employees, and reduces the risk of cyber threats.
Integrated Threat Protection
SASE provides integrated threat protection, including firewalls, VPNs, and security information and event management (SIEM). This enhances the overall security posture of the organization and helps to detect and prevent cyber threats in real-time.
Optimized Network Performance
SASE optimizes network performance for cloud-based applications, reducing latency and increasing reliability. This improves the user experience and helps to ensure the availability and performance of critical applications, even in demanding or bandwidth-intensive environments
SASE provides zero-trust security, which assumes that all network traffic is untrusted until proven otherwise. This enhances the overall security posture of the organization and helps to prevent cyber threats, especially those posed by malicious insiders.
Simplified Deployment & Management
SASE simplifies deployment and management, reducing costs and maximizing efficiency. This allows organizations to focus on their core business and reduces the need for specialized IT personnel to manage the network and security infrastructure.
Cost-effective & Scalable
SASE is a cost-effective and scalable solution that can be tailored to meet the needs of businesses of all sizes. It eliminates the need for capital expenditures on hardware, reducing upfront costs and providing a more flexible and scalable solution that can grow with the organization.
Improved User Experience
SASE improves the user experience by reducing latency and improving the performance of cloud-based applications. This increases productivity, improves satisfaction, and helps to ensure that employees have the resources they need to do their jobs effectively.
What is driving the adoption of SASE?
The term “SASE” was first introduced by Gartner in 2019, making it a relatively new concept in the world of networking and security. However, the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting shift to remote work have significantly accelerated the adoption of SASE. Some of the key factors driving this increased adoption include:
- The need for secure access to cloud-based applications from anywhere and on any device.
- The desire for a more consolidated, efficient, and integrated approach to network security that eliminates the need for multiple, disparate solutions.
- The growing threat of cyber-attacks and the need for advanced threat protection, real-time detection, and response capabilities.
- The increasing demand for optimized network performance, especially for cloud-based applications, and the need for a solution that can reduce latency and improve reliability.
- The desire for a more flexible and scalable solution that can grow with the organization, reduce costs, and simplify deployment and management.
