SASE

Make SASE work your way

Secure access service edge (SASE) combines networking and security functions in the cloud to deliver secure access to applications anywhere users work. The core functions include software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN), firewall as a service (FWaaS), secure web gateway (SWG), cloud access security broker (CASB) and zero trust network access (ZTNA).

The goal of the SASE model is to consolidate these functions, traditionally delivered in siloed point solutions, into a single, integrated cloud service.

Our approach based on Cisco’s SASE solution

Cisco’s SASE approach delivers simplicity, visibility and efficiency. Organisations can build on what they already have by protecting on-premises and cloud investments with the flexibility to evolve the infrastructure in the future. As you transition services from on-premises to the cloud, you can enforce policies consistently across all environments. With open APIs in both networking and security, choose what works best by integrating with preferred products or Cisco's broad and open ecosystem.

Key benefits

  • Connect and secure access to applications, data and the internet for remote workers, fixed locations, any internet-facing devices and workloads
  • Gain end-to-end observability from the user all the way to applications, over any network or cloud
  • Optimise performance by ensuring the fastest, most reliable and secure path to the cloud
  • Adopt ZTNA by verifying the identity of users and the health of their devices to secure access to applications on a per-session basis
  • Make your business more agile by leveraging the cloud to remove complexity from your infrastructure and provide immediate scalability
