The Power of SASE – Part 2

Categories: Connectivity

One of the hottest new buzzwords in security is SASE (Secure Access Service Edge) and in this case, the buzz is well founded. You’re probably heard of it but maybe you don’t know much about it. What can SASE do for your business? Well, pull up a seat and let’s get into the details.

SASE is a network architecture that combines WAN capabilities with cloud-native #security functions to deliver seamless work from anywhere supported by total security. The beauty of cloud-native security is that all the functioning comes from the provider - not the customer. With more people working remotely than ever, the traditional security that once protected businesses can no longer keep up. Because employees need access to company resources from anywhere, it is more essential than ever for companies to protect their cloud of data.

Combining SASE with #SDWAN into a single solution offers these benefits:

  1. Increases cloud application performance.
  2. Protects users and business critical applications across WAN, branch and cloud.
  3. Allows users to work and connect from anywhere in the world.
  4. Provides added visibility and agility.

SASE enables #ZeroTrust network access for today’s work-from-anywhere business environment. It provides secure private access with VPN connectivity, as well as the ability to securely access applications hosted in DC, branch, or on public cloud. You can scale up or down as needed and have no infrastructure to deploy or manage.

You’ll also benefit from a secure web gateway that can scale to support millions of secure clients. The gateway provides enterprise grade authentication and traffic encryption. It integrates seamlessly with your existing infrastructure, allowing you to securely connect to your enterprise network. SASE is changing the way the world connects. It is slowly revolutionizing the security space, and it will be up to your company to keep up.

Benefits and case studies

Are you currently using on-premises VPNs to accommodate remote workers? Do they deal with a poor application experience and with security that doesn’t extend to their users or cloud gateways? Are you still playing catch-up from the huge numbers of employees now working remotely? It’s time to learn about the solutions #SASE can provide for you.

The wave of the future is this: instead of having the network centered around the central private data center, put your cloud at the center of the network. This is where the heavy lifting is done by SASE to ensure that all users have a seamless experience.

No matter what your situation, you can get up-to-date and secure with #SASE. Benefits include:

  1. Improvement of remote access performance.
  2. Establishment of internet security & policies, including transparency.
  3. Reduction in IT complexity.
  4. Increased protection for devices, technology and data across your organization.

The centralization of the SASE system means that each user, no matter where their location, will be able to:

  1. Utilize cloud SASE deployment with cloud gateway.
  2. Self-onboard devices and authenticate (or an admin can configure and setup security and compliance policies per employee).
  3. Reduce VPN load.
  4. Sign in safely and securely
  5. In addition, the SASE system improves user satisfaction all around.

The SASE systems completely trump any legacy, and for good reason - legacy solutions are separate, while SASE is able to provide them under one centralized solution. This is increasingly important at a time where so many employees are working remotely. In this new digital world, there has to be an extremely secure way for everyone to connect, no matter where they are. Gone are the days of private data centers and in their place, a single-service cloud providing data and solutions all in one place, so everyone in the organization is able to network within the same space that security is conducted. Not only that, but the fact that this cloud isn’t a physical thing means that it is flexible and easily scalable to keep up with the times and trends. SASE is the digital shift in the future and the ultimate connector.
