Secure Access Service Edge (SASE)

The perfect blend of security and availability for your critical applications, with full control and visibility of the entire corporate network

The rise of hybrid working, with an increasingly distributed workforce utilising a wide range of
Cloud platforms and SaaS applications, means the consistent application of cyber security policies is an evolving challenge for many organisations. As the new breed of perimeter-less network establishes itself, the need to maintain both the accessibility of critical applications and the highest standard of data protection means legacy infrastructure frequently shows its limitations.

Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) offers a single answer, with a solution that is data-centric, Cloud-smart, and optimised for today’s agile workflows. Built on leading edge SD-WAN and SSE platforms, SASE combines the best of next-gen connectivity and cyber security.

What is SASE?

As defined by Gartner, SASE is “an emerging framework for the convergence of networking and network security services within a global Cloud-based platform to protect users, applications and data.”

When successfully implemented, this results in a highly streamlined, intelligently automated security posture that offers robust protection against the latest threats, including malware, phishing, data loss, and malicious insiders, and complete control over how the web, Cloud platforms, and SaaS applications are accessed and utilised, wherever employees are connecting from. At the same time, IT teams are freed of the need to maintain physical hardware at the edge across multiple regions, allowing for a more flexible, streamlined security posture that maintains the flexibility and agility required in a rapidly evolving threat landscape.

Bringing together
the cutting edge of networking and cyber security

With SASE, corporate cyber security policies are automatically applied on a per-user or per-device basis, wherever employees are connecting from, with the option available to manage them through a single pane of glass.

World-class security applied at the edge

By automatically applying corporate cyber security policies at the edge, regardless of the method of access, organisations retain full control of their data while providing the scalability and flexibility that modern hybrid working and the increasing popularity of SaaS applications demands.

Security policies can be defined and applied on a per user and per region basis, streamlining SecOps across the perimeterless network architectures created by increasing Cloud adoption while protecting critical data from the threats legacy security frequently misses.

Automated reporting, driven by a data-centric security model, opens up new opportunities for security enhancements and service improvements, such as SIEM. The information that can be collated on a per-application basis includes users, file names, activity, and who files are shared with, with further optimisation achieved through seamless CSOC integration.

The intelligent, flexible deployment of multiple layer defences - including pre-execution script analysis and heuristics, sandboxing and machine learning anomaly detection, user and entity behaviours analytics - allows for access compromise and insider threats to automatically detected and resolved. At the same time, URL filtering, predictive analytics, machine learning and intelligent automation ensures protection from DNS-based threats, such as tunnelling or bad domains, while providing greater insight into potential threats posed by unknown domain names.
