Read our blog post below to learn more about the benefits of SASE and decide if it meets the needs of your company.
What is SASE?
As written in our blog post here, SASE stands for Secure Access Service Edge. Secure Access Service Edge takes multiple networks and online securities and combines them into one, cloud platform. Combining these networks leads to a more secure and streamlined user experience, no matter the user, device, or location. SASE improves IT management functions and will continue to do so in the future.
What Are The Benefits?
The use of SASE comes with many benefits to your company. Combining wide-area networking with security services creates one cloud-native solution for companies that comes with many advantages.
- Cost Structure – The first advantage to using Secure Access Service Edge compared to traditional methods is that it saves your company money. By combining the services into one cloud-based solution, you save the money that you would be paying for multiple networking and security services. Secure Access Service Edge itself has a cost, but it is typically less because of the streamlined connection and decrease in point components.
- Location – With the quick implementation of working from home, Secure Access Service Edge allows the cloud to be accessed from anywhere, giving your employees their needed access from anywhere. This access is uniform and seamless for all users, once preferences are set, so they are able to work efficiently. You are able to restrict or enable access to the cloud for each user, device, and location which puts the control in your hands.
- Future Forward – There’s no more need to upgrade once you switch to Secure Access Service Edge. Cloud-based network management systems are the future of network and security functions. Cloud-based functions are able to expand without needing external additions. SASE will continue to grow and expand with your business to meet your business needs.
Are There Any Disadvantages to SASE?
The disadvantages of Secure Access Service Edge are not comparable to its advantages. One “disadvantage” of SASE is that there are no new technologies being used. Cloud-based systems have been around for years and SASE is just utilizing these systems to streamline their networks and security networks. The other perceived disadvantage of using this technology is it takes out the need for multi-point networks. This takes away the freedom for businesses to multi-source their networks and security networks to multiple services (i.e. SWG, WAN, CASB, DLP).
