Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) is a unified way to safeguard your use of web, cloud, and private applications without the hassles of point products. ESPO takes SASE even further, combining true, enterprise-class data loss prevention with secure access and advanced threat protection.
Now, your people can work anywhere, safely and efficiently, keeping threats out and sensitive data in.
Gartner defines SASE as “an emerging offering combining comprehensive WAN capabilities with comprehensive network security functions (such as SWG, CASB, FWaaS and ZTNA) to support the dynamic secure access needs of digital enterprises.”
These digital enterprises, Gartner adds, exhibit trends such as:
- Increased number of roaming users
- Increased SaaS and IaaS
- Increased sensitive data in the cloud
- Increased traffic destined for cloud services, including from branch offices
The ability to securely support these new trends while keeping complexity down will be a key driver in adopting SASE solutions.
While many organizations are looking to adopt a SASE framework, only a select few Network/Security Vendors contain the appropriate technologies in their portfolios to make adopting this new architecture a reality. This is where ESPO provides value, not only can we assist with pairing your organization with the best SASE solution, but we can provide professional services to implement the technology as well.
Gartner also lists, in order of priority, the core components of a SASE solution as: SD-WAN, SWG, CASB, ZTNA and FWaaS, and DLP.
