Secure Access Service Edge

SASE (Secure Access Service Edge) is a modern network architecture that integrates network security and wide-area networking (WAN) capabilities into a unified cloud-based service. Safer Network Solutions sells, deploys and supports solutions from Cisco Umbrella, Meraki and Fortinet. Here are some of the key benefits of implementing a SASE solution:

  • Improved Security Posture: SASE combines multiple security functions, such as secure web gateways (SWG), firewall as a service (FWaaS), zero-trust network access (ZTNA), and cloud access security brokers (CASB), into a single platform. This allows organizations to enforce consistent security policies across all users, devices, and applications, regardless of their location.
  • Zero Trust Architecture: SASE solutions are built on the principle of zero trust, which assumes that every user and device, both inside and outside the corporate network, is untrusted. By implementing zero-trust network access (ZTNA) controls, SASE ensures that users and devices are authenticated and authorized before accessing corporate resources, reducing the risk of unauthorized access and data breaches.
  • Scalability and Agility: SASE leverages cloud-native architecture to provide scalability and agility, allowing organizations to quickly adapt to changing business requirements and network conditions. SASE solutions can easily scale up or down based on demand, ensuring optimal performance and resource utilization.
  • Simplified Management: SASE centralizes management and policy enforcement through a unified cloud-based platform. This simplifies network and security management tasks, reduces operational overhead, and provides greater visibility and control over network traffic and security events.
  • Reduced Complexity: SASE consolidates multiple networking and security functions into a single platform, reducing the complexity of managing and securing distributed IT environments. This simplifies the deployment and maintenance of network infrastructure and security controls, leading to cost savings and operational efficiency.
  • Enhanced User Experience: SASE improves the user experience by providing secure and seamless access to applications and data from any location and device. By optimizing network performance and reducing latency, SASE ensures that users have fast and reliable access to the resources they need to be productive.
  • Built-in Resilience and Redundancy: SASE solutions are designed to be highly resilient and redundant, with built-in failover and disaster recovery capabilities. This ensures continuous availability of network and security services, even in the event of hardware failures or network outages.
  • Compliance and Data Protection: SASE helps organizations maintain compliance with regulatory requirements and industry standards by enforcing consistent security policies and data protection measures across the entire network infrastructure. This reduces the risk of non-compliance penalties and data breaches.
  • Cost Savings: SASE can help organizations reduce costs by eliminating the need for on-premises hardware and software appliances, as well as the associated maintenance and upgrade expenses. By leveraging cloud-based services and subscription-based pricing models, organizations can achieve cost savings and predictability in their IT budgets.
  • Future-Proofing: SASE provides a future-proof foundation for digital transformation initiatives, enabling organizations to embrace emerging technologies such as cloud computing, mobility, and IoT without sacrificing security or performance. This helps organizations stay competitive and agile in a rapidly evolving business landscape.

SASE solutions offer a comprehensive and holistic approach to network security and connectivity, enabling organizations to achieve greater agility, scalability, and resilience while reducing complexity and costs.
