SASE (Secure Access Service Edge)

A secure access service edge (SASE, pronounced "Sassy") is a new enterprise networking technology that converges SD-WAN/wide area networks and security point solution controls as a cloud-native service directly to an endpoint, connection, or remote node. Network security services includes FWaaS, CASB, SWG, and ZTNA-Zero Trust bundled into unified cloud-based delivery architecture.

Key Components:

  • Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN)

SD-WAN enables optimal WAN management. SASE leverages SD-WAN capabilities to provide optimized network routing, global connectivity, WAN and Internet security, cloud acceleration, and remote access

  • Firewall as a Service (FWaaS)

A firewall is the foundation of any network security stack. SASE includes FWaaS to provide the scalability and elasticity needed for the digital business and to extend a full network security stack wherever needed

  • Zero-Trust Network Access (ZTNA)

ZTNA offers a modern approach to securing application access for users. It embraces a zero-trust policy, where application access dynamically adjusts based on user identity, location, device type, and more

  • Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB)

CASB helps enterprises adapt to the new threats that come with cloud computing. When delivered as part of a SASE service, the complexity of integrating CASB with other point security solutions is eliminated

  • Secure Web Gateway (SWG)

SWG solutions protect users against malware, phishing, and other web-borne threats. SASE offers SWG protection to all users, at all locations, and eliminates the need to maintain policies across multiple point solutions

  • Unified Management

SASE solves the complexity of managing multiple disparate products. A true SASE allows users to monitor and manage all network and security solutions from a single pane of glass
