SASE (pronounced “sassy”) simplifies wide-area networking (WAN) and security by delivering both as a cloud service directly to the source of connection rather than the enterprise data center. Digital transformation, remote work from anywhere and cloud-based computing have accelerated cloud-delivered SASE offerings to enable anywhere, anytime access from any device.
Existing network approaches and technologies no longer provide the levels of security and access control organizations need to enable anytime, anywhere access to data. To enable and protect anywhere, anytime access, security must become software-defined and cloud-delivered, forcing changes in security architecture and vendor selection.
Originally described by Gartner in 2019, SASE combines wide area networking and network security services like CASB, FWaaS and Zero Trust, into a single, cloud-delivered service model. Gartner expects that, “by 2025, at least 60% of enterprises will have explicit strategies to adopt SASE, up from less than 1% at year-end 2018.” A SASE architecture identifies users and devices, applies policy-based security, and delivers secure access to the appropriate application or data. This approach allows organizations to apply secure access no matter where their users, applications or devices are located.
According to Gartner, there are a variety of actions to consider when creating a SASE roadmap.
