WHAT IT DOES
SASE at a glance.
IT professionals need a solution that combines network security functions with WAN capabilities and supports the dynamic secure access needs of organizations. SASE is an integrated service that provides comprehensive secure access for modern computing environments, reduces complexity and costs by consolidating technology stacks, lowers operational overhead, and speeds up new technology adoption. According to Gartner, security and risk management leaders should build a migration plan from legacy perimeter and hardware-based offerings to a SASE model.1 With SASE, enterprises save management time, ensure business continuity, improve performance for latency-sensitive apps, and simplify the access experience for users by removing operational friction.
