Firstly, using a single vendor for SSE is preferable since it may help you avoid issues like complicated policy administration, managing numerous user interfaces, and potential architectural conflicts.
Second, rather than hardware-based SSE platforms, complete cloud-delivered SSE platforms should be prioritized. By thoroughly examining each service and making sure it is supplied via the cloud, you can save appliance costs, use the cloud to expand automatically as needed, and provide a better user experience since there are more points of presence (some SSE services run on the backbone of AWS and GCP).
Additionally, choosing an SSE platform that provides ZTNA with inspection would make the IT team’s life much simpler. IT must be able to see what apps are accessed by staff members and outside users, what they download, and what actions they do when using an app. IT security teams won’t be able to get this crucial visibility via zero trust network access (ZTNA) services that lack inspection. They will also struggle to modify access privileges in response to context-based changes.
