Accelerate Government Modernization with Secure Access Service Edge
Suss Consulting discusses how services are evolving and Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) will speed delivery of IT modernization benefits across the federal government.
Government organizations, like many large enterprises, are experiencing significant changes in how users expect to access information and services. At the same time, government organizations are adopting new service delivery models. The modernization of government information technology (IT) is happening during a period of increasingly sophisticated cyber threats and a dramatic expansion of the government’s cyber defense operations.
These three forces – changing user expectations, changing service delivery models, and increasing cyber threats – combine in challenging ways. As a result of these changes, there is a need to upgrade security architectures to provide cyber defenders with the enhanced capabilities they need for their assigned missions.
This paper describes how SASE, a new security architecture, can enable the mobile workforce, support the transition to multi-cloud and enable Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA).
