What is Security Service Edge (SSE)?

Secure Service Edge (SSE) is a framework that contains multiple features to secure and protect a business network. Network security solutions (FWaaS, CASB, SWG, and ZTNA) are combined into a single, cloud-native service via the SSE framework. By adopting these SSE solutions, businesses enhance their agility and capacity for preventing, identifying, and responding to online threats.

SSE benefits

Secure Access

Secure Access

Secure Web Gateways (SWGs) enforce business policies to keep organizations compliant. NordLayer SWGs block traffic to malicious web-sites, preventing various threats.

Better Security

Better Security

NordLayer utilizes CASB capabilities to securely act between users and their cloud infrastructure, controlling access to critical resources.

Visibility and Control

Visibility & Control

Zero Trust Network Access is an IT security approach whereby implicit trust is removed from all computing infrastructure. Instead, trust levels are continuously reviewed and adapted.


Align SSE implementation with your business

The solutions within the SSE framework allow enterprises to monitor cloud usage and manage the compliance and security of web and cloud services across all workers, regardless of location.

CSPM is one of these solutions and it helps track compliance and use of IaaS and SaaS services. NordLayer provides a broad range of security solutions to help organizations meet, exceed, and maintain compliance.

Frequently asked questions

The security service components of a thorough SASE (pronounce "sassy") strategy are offered by SSE. One cloud-delivered solution from SSE combines features for access control, threat prevention, data security, security monitoring, and acceptable usage control. A full SASE platform is created when SSE and SD-WAN are joined. This platform offers monitoring and policy enforcement with integrated network controls, application APIs, and endpoint-based controls. In 2019, Gartner introduced the cybersecurity concept of SASE. SASE solution is a cloud-delivered service paradigm that unifies network security services like CASB, FWaaS, and ZTNA with software-defined wide area networking or SD-WAN.
