SASE - Secure Access Service Edge
Secure Access Service Edge or SASE is an architecture that combines comprehensive WAN capabilities including SD-WAN, routing, and WAN optimization with cloud-delivered security services such as SWG, CASB, and ZTNA.
As users connect from anywhere and access sensitive data in the cloud, SASE brings a more secure and flexible way to connect by not backhauling application traffic to a data center. Instead, SASE intelligently steers the traffic to the cloud and performs advanced security inspection directly in the cloud.
SASE addresses the need for improved application performance and increased network security as the number of remote users increases and as enterprises continue to migrate applications to the cloud.
Components Of SASE
The main components of SASE are advanced SD-WAN and comprehensive cloud-delivered security.
