Secure Access Service Edge (SASE)
What is secure access service edge (SASE)?
Secure access service edge (SASE) is a network architecture framework that delivers wide area network and security controls from the cloud directly to edge devices, without going through the data center. Leveraging cloud and edge resources, SASE helps reduce latency while supporting remote users spread across the world.
What does secure access service edge do?
Secure access service edge (SASE) combines security and cloud networking for organizational simplicity, scalability, flexibility, and redundant security. By bringing network security to WAN capabilities, SASE delivers secure, optimal automation for cloud-based applications and workloads. Users across the globe access network and applications securely from a single management platform. SASE provides secure connectivity and consistent security for mobile users, branch offices, and retail locations all over the world. It offers a centralized dashboard for the entire network, allowing companies to quickly identify users, devices, and endpoints, as well as apply network access and security policies—securely connecting users to their cloud apps and data.
How does wide area network (WAN) relate to secure access service edge?
Organizations migrating data and applications to the cloud need to address security, especially for use of public clouds. Software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) helps enterprises build and manage networks of remote workers and offices. Unfortunately, SD-WAN does not include security and access controls needed to defend networks in a cloud environment. A secure access service edge (SASE) combines WAN capabilities with comprehensive security functionality including secure web gateway (SWG), cloud access security broker (CASB), firewall as a service (FWaaS), and Zero Trust network access (ZTNA) to extend network security through the cloud and mobile environments.
