Why use a managed services provider for your SASE implementation

Recently the architecture model known as Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) has been gaining momentum. Not surprising, when the model provides benefits - including reduced complexity of management, improved network performance and resiliency, security policy implemented consistently across office and remote users and lower operational expense. In fact, according to a recent ESG survey, 70% of businesses are using or considering a SASE solution.

The Business Value of Security Service Edge (SSE) and the SASE and Zero Trust Journey

I’m not big on acronyms or buzzwords. Like many executives, my eyes glaze over when I’m being prospected with an alphabet soup of technology terms I supposedly “need” to care about. So why, then, does the title of this article include Security Service Edge (SSE), Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), and Zero Trust? Despite our justified disdain for acronyms, the ideas behind these terms hold genuine importance for business leaders.

Why SASE is your best bet to secure a remote workspace

The origins of Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) can be traced back to 2019, when legacy network security systems were extensively used in workspaces. Gartner defined SASE as the combined deployment of cloud-based cybersecurity functions, including Firewall as a Service, a cloud access security broker (CASB), a secure web gateway (SWG), Zero Trust network access (ZTNA), and software-defined WAN (SD-WAN).

SD-WAN and Security Service Edge (SSE): Building Blocks for SASE

If you work in networking or security, you have probably gotten used to the acronym stew that makes up the technology industry at times. By now you have surely heard the latest buzzword and what industry analysts have coined as security service edge (SSE). SSE is essentially the consolidation of Firewall-as-a-Service (FWaaS), secure web gateway (SWG), cloud access security broker, and Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) delivered as a cloud service.

Three things you should know about SASE and SD-WAN

As organizations have accelerated their plans to better enable dispersed workforces in a post-pandemic reality, many technology decision-makers are broadly rethinking their network architectures. Inevitably their discussions lead to comparisons and debates over both software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) and secure access service edge (SASE) technologies.

AT&T teams with Cisco to create new managed SASE offering

Whether organizations call it digital transformation or just using technology to create opportunities for new, easier ways to work, one thing is certain. Businesses increasingly need to find simpler ways to securely build and manage new kinds of connections that support an era of: This is exactly the drive behind the latest collaboration between the cybersecurity and networking experts at AT&T and Cisco.

Start Your Zero Trust Journey With the Gartner SASE Roadmap

Here’s the reality: hybrid and remote work are here to stay. This means access to your corporate data can now come from anywhere, on any device and any network. In order to tackle this new norm, Gartner has defined a new cybersecurity framework called Secure Access Service Edge (SASE).
