Understanding SASE: Taking security to the edge

Published by Barracuda

More and more businesses are looking to improve security by living on the edge — the Secure Access Service Edge (SASE).

SASE is not a single tool — it is a way of integrating tools and taking them to where users are, at the edge. The concept was first given the name SASE by Gartner in 2019 and was defined as: “…a new package of technologies including SD-WAN, SWG, CASB, ZTNA, and FWaaS as core abilities, with the ability to identify sensitive data or malware and the ability to decrypt content at line speed, with continuous monitoring of sessions for risk and trust levels.”

Living on the edge SASE is the future of network security and access. Digital transformation, the distributed mobile workforce, the adoption of cloud services, and emerging edge computing platforms have changed how enterprises operate. Today’s users expect to have access to corporate applications from anywhere and from any device. SASE makes this possible, and it makes it secure.
