What is SASE?
Get simple, streamlined cloud security
The increasing need to safeguard remote access, fortify hybrid offices, and protect company data from cybersecurity breaches drove Gartner to coin a new term in late 2019: Secure Access Service Edge (SASE). SASE offers an alternative to traditional data center-oriented security by unifying networking and security services into a single cloud-delivered service.
Cisco Umbrella can be your first step towards a full SASE architecture, delivering flexible, scalable cloud-based security, whenever and wherever you need it.
Gartner created SASE – but what is it?
Gartner’s SASE architecture combines the functions of network security, including zero-trust network access, secure web gateway (SWG), and firewall as a service (FWaaS) with wide area network (WAN) capabilities to support the secure access needs of organizations. SASE delivers speed, agility, and protection via the cloud, optimizing productivity while reducing complexity and cost.
