Any solution out there that promises to reduce your network costs by 80%, provide comprehensive network security or drastically increase application performance, should not be taken lightly by anyone in the IT industry. 

It is one of those moments where you are required to sit up and take notice of what this emerging technology brings to the WAN edge market. Gartner predicts that “by 2024, at least 40% of enterprises will have explicit strategies to adopt SASE, up from less than 1% at year-end 2018.” 

What is SASE and why is it being adopted at such a rapid pace?

SASE is the result of two decades of churn that has been happening in the networking/cybersecurity space. It is the convergence of Wide Area Networking, or WAN, and network security services such as ZTNA, CASB, SWG, RBI and NGFWaaS.

Security is moving to the cloud with the digital transformation of businesses. This is driving the need for services to converge, in order to improve security, improve performance, reduce complexity, enhance the multi-cloud experience and thereby, transform the SD-WAN space.

What does Versa SASE architecture look like?

Versa SASE integrates security, networking, SD-WAN analytics within a single software operating system delivered via the cloud, on-premises, or as a blended combination of both.

 

 

How does SASE benefit my business?

The SASE model converges numerous networking and security functions–traditionally delivered in siloed point solutions–in a single, integrated cloud service. By converging with SASE, enterprises can:

•  Reduce costs and complexity
•  Provide centralized orchestration and real-time application optimization
•  Secure user access seamlessly
•  Reduce deployment time to a couple of minutes
•  Genuine multi-tenancy
•  Improve security by applying consistent policy
•  Policy based-automation
•  Increase network and security staff effectiveness with centralized management, a single pane of glass, delivered from the cloud.

Businesses that implement Versa SASE with a single, integrated software solution will see consistent policy implementation, granular visibility and control, reduced attack surfaces, dramatically lower latency, and unprecedented application performance.
SASE will see an astounding increase in adoption in 2021 all the way up till 2024, because of its benefits, integration, and ease of implementation. In a time when uncertainty is the norm, having certainty in how networking and security services are delivered – whether in the cloud, at a data center, branch offices, or to home offices while taking into context the user and device – is essential for business continuity and productivity.
Adoption of SASE is fundamental for business continuity to deliver consistent policies to protect access and optimize performance. SASE is the go-to solution for organizations wanting to transform their data networks, thereby creating more efficient and lean organizations.
