Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) was first coined by research firm Gartner in 2019, and is a framework for designing security and networking architecture in a world where the use of cloud applications is now ubiquitous in business. Since then, it’s swiftly risen to become a major player in the industry. SASE is not a term for one single platform or solution, instead encompassing cloud-based architecture that delivers network and security services meant to protect users, applications, and data.
Gartner highlights that “by 2025, at least 60% of enterprises will have explicit strategies and timelines for SASE adoption encompassing user, branch and edge access, up from 10% in 2020.” However, even with such rapid adoption of SASE architecture, most businesses will not tackle SASE exactly the same way, with some focused on the core security capabilities whilst others continue to retire legacy networking investments in favour of more modern networking capabilities such as SD-WAN, and others working throughout the infrastructure to add zero-trust network access (ZTNA) capabilities.
In this Virtual Briefing, Mobliciti and Netskope discussed:
- What SASE is & why it’s important?
- What does SASE Architecture look like?
- The benefits of SASE
- How to implement SASE
- How Netskope can help address critical needs in cloud security, networking, and the application of zero trust principles
