A Pragmatic Path to SASE

Aug 24, 2021

Cloud adoption has become ubiquitous, with ESG finding that 94% of organizations use public cloud services such as infrastructure as a service (IaaS) or software as a service (SaaS). Yet, the consumption of cloud services will continue to accelerate.

Today's modern business has had to quickly adapt to the needs of a distributed workforce that demands agility. To meet these needs, enterprises have accelerated investments in cloud technology but have struggled with securing the work there.

These shifts have highlighted the need for a reimagined cloud-based network and security architecture through secure access service edge (SASE). But in a rush to address these business-critical demands, many security leaders may overly simplify what this security transformation involves and the phased approach necessary to get there.

A logical starting point for this journey to SASE is focusing on eliminating attacks on users with an emphasis on where they spend most of their working day—in a web browser—through a combination of secure web gateway (SWG), cloud access security broker (CASB), data loss prevention (DLP), and remote browser isolation (RBI).

This white paper examines how digital transformation initiatives have become a top priority for organizations and breaks down the phased approach needed to provide a secure foundation and scalability to improve security and protect these initiatives. Topics include:

  • How to support a distributed workforce
  • The criticality of protecting browser-based traffic
  • Leveraging SASE as a business enabler
  • How to take a Zero Trust-oriented path towards SASE
  • Download your free copy of this white paper to learn the phased approach needed when implementing the SASE framework.
