Secure Access Service Edge, or SASE, is an emerging cybersecurity concept. In this video, you understand how the key capabilities of SASE address the demands of growing network sprawl and the challenges of digitally transforming your business.
Implementing SASE services allows enterprises to achieve a modern secure network. Today, providing optimal network performance and securing users, devices, and applications regardless of location is a necessity. While SASE is still a relatively new framework to IT professionals, the growing adoption of this framework is clear to see. Currently, customers who are evaluating SASE solutions or have already implemented SASE in their environment, tend to be enterprises with larger IT teams comprised of dedicated security, compliance, networking, and hardware specialized staff. With the types of resources and manpower larger enterprises have, deploying SASE services is achievable.
But what about enterprises with Lean IT teams? How can they realize a SASE architecture for their organization with the sparse resources they have?
When Versa Titan was brought to the market our mission was to radically simplify the operational and business experience not only for our partners but customers who are leaner than our large global enterprise customers. To accomplish this, Versa assessed how to simplify the end-user experience when deploying, managing and operating complex technology such as SD-WAN, routing, security, and analytics so that leaner IT organizations can quickly and easily transform their WAN.
Versa Titan materialized as a cloud-native service to remove friction, provide business agility, and allow customers to immediately adopt SD-WAN and security for their growing enterprise business. Built in the cloud for the cloud from day one, Versa Titan’s architecture provides the flexibility of control and visibility for customer branches and their cloud infrastructure as well – all from a single unified platform, managed and delivered from the cloud. This means customers are now able to deploy SD-WAN with security in-built with a simple drag-and-drop and activate locations with a mobile application in anywhere from 5 to 15 mins.
With SASE being brought to the market now as a defined architectural approach and design to Secure the Access to the Service Edge of the network, the points of enforcement, visibility and control need to re-align to be more cloud-native, cloud-delivered. Security services such as Secure Web Gateway (SWG) and Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) for secure private and public access for remote workers need to be offered and consumed as distributed cloud security services – while being a provided as a natural part of the broader WAN operations and management.
As businesses look to reduce the complexities with security policy management for their site(s) to access untrusted internet applications and trusted applications like O365 or on-premises applications, they also look at how they can support a Work-from-Anywhere (WFA) workforce. Enter in SASE, a modern security framework that is designed to enable WFA use cases. However, what many companies quickly come to realize is that the approach for consumption, management, and operations can quickly become complex – they will now need to not only engage with their SD-WAN supplier, but now their SWG supplier, Remote Access vendor and other services. In short, what was already struggling to be lean and was hardware oriented just became more complex.
Versa Titan has been available in the market solving for the broader WAN estate for site-to-site services and site-to-cloud services using SD-WAN with integrated security at the branch, delivered as a lean service from the cloud. With the addition of Versa Secure Access and Versa Secure Web Gateway to the Versa Titan service, customers can now manage, deploy, and operate an end-to-end SASE architecture – delivered as a single unified platform, from the cloud, allowing Lean IT-driven organizations to:
Minimize the complexities of multi-touch and multi-solution security stacks
Improve client experience for SaaS by utilizing high performing and low latency SASE Gateways deployed in a global fabric
Leverage SD-WAN for intelligent application-based multi-path steering driven by application experience from branch-to-cloud and now remote-user to cloud and private access services
Attain deep visibility with historical analytics for their sites, users, and SASE Gateways
Versa Titan drives unique and differentiated value for Lean IT by: delivering SASE services in a single unified solution, combing full stack security with industry-leading SD-WAN, making it the easiest solution to deploy, configure, and manage SASE services. By simplifying IT, IT teams can focus on streamlining operations, achieving their organization’s mission, and driving business agility.
