What kind of company should use SASE?
SASE converges both networking and security capabilities into a single-service cloud-native architecture that shifts the security focus from traffic-flow-centric to identity-centric. SASE encompasses a package of technologies that embeds security into the global fabric of the network so it is always available no matter where the user is, where the application or resource being accessed is, or what combination of transport technologies connects the user and the resource.
Converging network and security functions has broad organizational, structural and cultural implications in the approach to technology adoption, how budgeting is done, and how purchasing decisions are reached.
The impact is more profound for large enterprises and government organizations traditionally more rigidly structured, and not as nimble as smaller companies.
And yet the two most critical driving forces for SASE adoption—to converge networking and security—are equally applicable to all organizations, but especially critical to financial, healthcare and government.
- To better enable a Work-from-Anywhere (WFA) workforce
- To properly secure access in the accelerating rate of cloud adoption
