Along with the ever-changing operation model, enterprises adopt SD-WAN technology to accelerate digital transformation. With the uptrend of hybrid working, remote working and distributed network, enterprises have no choice but deploy flexible, efficient and secure network solutions. Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) solution is the panacea.
Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) is a solution that based on “Zero Trust” concept. To fully enable SASE service, enterprise can integrate SD-WAN technology to empower best path selection based on business needs and Quality of Service (QoS). In addition, it can enhance network security, efficiency and flexibility to accelerate business development for higher business value.
For those enterprises seeking a high degree of flexibility and agility, the Direct Internet Access and Cloud Applications are the popular solutions that can be easily deployed and flexibility allocate resources. However, these solutions may expand their attack surfaces and derive cybersecurity threats.
Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) solutions leverage DNS protection, Data Loss Prevention (DLP) and Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) to effectively protect digital assets and user device security while reducing management costs. Benefited from its scalability, SASE can support new user registrations, cybersecurity or other business needs, ensuring fast response time and high cost-effectiveness.
Many global enterprises are adopting a distributed enterprises model that allows for a high degree of remote working, even extending to employees’ mobile devices. While this agile business model ensures business continuity, it also creates potential vulnerabilities due to the booming number of remote devices.
SASE solution’s zero trust network accessibility offers identity-based authentication and granular access control to empower enterprises with secure private access to cloud-native platform or applications. By integrating with SD-WAN solutions, enterprises can deploy secure firewalls and UTMs at their network gateways, allowing all stakeholders to securely access internal applications and resources.
Under the pandemic situation, some enterprises have reformed their operational processes and actualized digitalization to cope with the ever-changing environment. They may partner with multiple service providers to develop new applications using emerging technologies. At the same time, the stacks of devices, operating systems and applications generated from digital transformation have become new attack surfaces and vulnerabilities. It is the top priority for enterprises to rearrange IT infrastructure and cybersecurity measures to support upgrades and minimize cyber threats.
In the process of business expansion and operation transformation, the number of branches will definitely increase. It is another pain point for transforming enterprises to manage complex networks across regions and connectivity. To overcome these challenges, SD-WAN solutions can simplify the network management and improve its efficiency. By integrating SASE with SD-WAN solutions, enterprises can centralize the network management, which not only simplies the process of implementing new cybersecurity measures, but also eliminates inefficient stacks and vulnerabilities.
