Versa SASE


What is SASE (Secure Access Service Edge)?

SASE (Secure Access Service Edge), pronounced “sassy”, is a cloud-native technology that Gartner defined in 2019. SASE establishes network security as an integral, embedded function of the network fabric.

SASE supplants legacy services offered by single-purpose point-solutions located in location-locked corporate premises such as data centers.

What is SASE Used For ?

The SASE framework can help organizations simplify their IT infrastructure, advance their threat prevention, better protect their data, implement flexible solutions, easily connect users and devices wherever they are located, and reduce total costs.

SASE also provides a Zero Trust approach to the cloud, which validates users and device access to applications anywhere in the world. SASE provides complete application session protection, whether a user is inside or outside the corporate network.



How Trends in Digital Transformation Led to SASE

The rigid network infrastructures of the past are not sufficient in today’s IT landscape where data is stored in the cloud and on various devices. Numerous trends emerged when organizations first began their digital transformation. As a result, the culmination of these trends led to the creation of Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) technology. Digital transformation trends that led to SASE include:

  • The core of your business is now the new “network,” meaning a web of interconnected peer networks
  • Applications can be hosted on your network or in the cloud, and are accessible everywhere
  • Internet connectivity have become cheap, ubiquitous, and instantly available on cellular networks
  • MPLS is no longer affordable or practical, and are often not secure
  • Business applications and data are hosted in the cloud because of the promise of flexibility, scalability, and elasticity.
  • The death-march of custom hardware has been superseded by usage-based subscription services in cloud-native virtual resources
  • An explosion of smart devices (IoT) are connected to your core network but often lack even rudimentary security features
  • Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) policies are now commonplace and lack the control and visibility of traditional corporate issued devices
