A New Era in Cybersecurity: Secure Access Service Edge
Strong levels of security are beginning to be demanded by organizations of all sizes following a growing number of cybersecurity attacks. Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) has emerged as a concept to improve security both in the cloud and on premise.
The network technologies that have existed prior to SASE do not provide the level of security necessary to accommodate remote users, cloud data, and increased traffic. By combining other key cybersecurity solutions and frameworks, Secure Access Service Edge will provide a more well-rounded, modern security approach.
Secure Access Service Edge combines wide area network (WAN) security and network security services such as CASB and Zero Trust into one model. SASE will identify users, apply policies, and deliver secure access to appropriate data. It’s a framework that allows organizations to give their users secure access from anywhere.
The Benefits of SASE
SASE enables your organization to flexibly implement and deliver security services such as sandboxing, web filtering, threat prevention, credential theft prevention, next-generation firewall policies, and data loss prevention. Instead of managing multiple solutions, it utilizes a single platform, minimizing resource costs. Having multiple security solutions in one place also reduces the number of solutions your team must manage, helping them to be more efficient.
For users, SASE helps improve productivity as it allows them to connect securely from wherever resources are located. It utilizes Zero Trust, never assuming the identity of a user, and always verifying before giving access to an application. Secure Access Service Edge will give complete session protection while the user is either on or off the network.
SASE also works to prevent data loss by implemented data protection policies within its framework. It also inspects content for threats, offering threat protection.
The combined benefits of Secure Access Service Edge both modernizes and streamlines the security within an organization. SASE is not just one solution but a combination of solutions. If your organization already implements Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Solutions, Web Gateways, Web Isolations, and other key solutions, you may already be on your way to achieving a SASE framework.
