SASE (Security Access Service Edge)

SASE is an emerging term in cybersecurity that stands for "Security Access Service Edge." It refers to a framework and not a specific technology. SASE is a cloud-based solution that offers bundled network capabilities with comprehensive security services from a single provider.

A SASE architecture combines a software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) or other WAN with multiple security services, which can include:

  • Anti-Malware,

  • Secure Web Gateway (SWG),

  • Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASB),

  • Firewall as a Service (FWaaS), and

  • Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA).

The advantages of using a SASE approach include vital capabilities for modern, globally distributed organizations, like more control and visibility over the users, traffic, and data accessing your corporate network.
