What is SASE?
SASE, or Secure Access Service Edge, is a networking and security architecture that combines various network and security services into a single cloud-based platform. Adopting SASE can bring several benefits to an organization.
Why SDWAN + SSE is the right choice
SASE can future-proof an organization's network infrastructure. As organizations increasingly adopt cloud and SaaS solutions, the need for a more flexible and scalable network infrastructure is becoming more critical. SASE provides a cloud-native platform that can support the network requirements of modern organizations and scale with their growing needs.
Benefits of adopting SASE
Secure network infrastructure - SASE converges security services such as Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), Secure Web Gateway (SWG), and Firewall-as-a-Service (FWaaS) into a single platform. It provides a consistent security posture across an organization's network, making it easier to manage and secure. Additionally, SASE's cloud-based architecture provides more flexibility, scalability, and agility, allowing organizations to quickly adapt to changing security threats.
Reduce network complexity and costs. By consolidating network and security services into a single platform, SASE simplifies network infrastructure, reducing the number of devices and services required. This simplification can lead to cost savings and improve operational efficiency.
Improve network performance - SASE can optimize network traffic and improve application performance by reducing latency and improving bandwidth utilization. Additionally, SASE's cloud-based architecture can provide a more reliable network infrastructure with improved redundancy and failover capabilities.
In conclusion, adopting SASE can provide numerous benefits to an organization, including improved security, reduced network complexity and costs, improved network performance, and a more future-proof network infrastructure.
