Discussion on SASE solution implementation

WHAT IS SASE?

SASE overview

Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) is a new enterprise of network and security functions introduced by Gartner. The SASE platform converges SD-WAN and network security point solutions (FWaaS, CASB, SWG, and ZTNA) into a unified, cloud-native service. In the past, network access was implemented with point solutions, managed as silos that were complex and costly. With SASE, enterprises can reduce the time to develop new products, deliver them to the market, and become adaptable to changes in business conditions or the competitive landscape.

Frequently asked questions

To meet the security demands of today, modern businesses require more than what traditional security solutions can offer. To ensure the safety and integrity of their networks, organizations need greater control over who is accessing corporate data, which is what the SASE framework provides. Within the shifting SASE landscape, NordLayer security services provide capabilities to ensure businesses of all sizes fulfill scaling and integration challenges when building a modern secure remote access solution.

As stated by security experts, Gartner, SASE combines several different security components to ensure that businesses have the greatest available level of control over the integrity of their networks. Leaning on the Zero Trust principles, SASE protects remote workers, data, and cloud resources whether they are inside or outside of the network.

SASE is used as a comprehensive security framework to protect business networks, users accessing them, and the critical data and resources inside of the network perimeter.

SASE network security solutions integrate with business infrastructures to provide secure access control to critical areas of the network. Combining strict authorization measures, and layers of cloud security components, and data protection, organizations have more power to defend themselves against outside threats, whilst controlling access to sensitive information — even limiting the damage of any data breaches that may occur.

SD-WANs are responsible for channeling traffic across the network via data centers. Whilst also cloud-based, SASE is a framework where data traveling across the network is consistently inspected for authenticity. For distributed workforces across the world - as many of today’s businesses are made up of - SASE provides a far more secure and efficient method for ensuring secure remote access to business networks for remote users, by incorporating SD-WAN into it’s cloud service.
