Time to get ‘SASE’ and Secure your Network

Time to get ‘SASE’ and Secure your Network

Matt Dykes, COO, Azorb

‘SASE’ (Secure Access Service Edge) – pronounced ‘Sassy’ is the new network architecture on the block that is overly bold and forward, building on and enhancing security. Companies have been switching to SD-WAN as the wide area network of choice with its ability to centrally manage and prioritise traffic from the cloud or on-premise and deliver cost-savings over traditional WAN networks such as MPLS. But then ‘SASE’ came along incorporating the benefits of SD-WAN along with secure web gateway (SWG), cloud access security broker (CASB), network firewalling and zero trust network access (ZTNA) to create a more resilient and reliable security proposition making it a very compelling proposition especially with increasing cyber security threats .

Cybercrime on the Rise

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have led to the growth in cybercrime where hackers are using it to refine malware, create deep fakes, personalise phishing emails, and design algorithms to steal data and launch ransomware attacks. The cost of cybercrime to the world is forecasted to be a staggering $10.5 trillion by 2025 according to Cybersecurity Ventures.

Security Top Concern

Companies need to raise cyber security to the top of their agenda and focus on how to mitigate these threats, identify them before they occur and ensure their network is robust, resilient, and secure, along with a recovery strategy if a cybercrime does occur.

Follow our ‘top tips’ on why you need a ‘SASE’ network:

Total Security

The SASE concept extends the notion of multiple security capabilities, unified and delivered in the cloud, by adding SD-WAN capability. A SASE solution can secure users from any location or device as they access the internet, SaaS apps, and private apps while delivering a secure SD-WAN fabric across disparate connections and simplified, centralised management.

Remote Working

More businesses and organisations have adopted remote working since 2022, with between 25%-40% of people based from home it has become essential to have a flexible network to accommodate different working environments. SASE provides secure and reliable access to your corporate network wherever your employees are based, whether that’s from home, a coffee shop or in the office.

Streamlining Management

It has become increasingly difficult for IT managers to manage a disparate network and support a combination of work and personal devices. SASE provides centralised management with the ability to see what is happening on the network in real-time so issues or threats can be immediately identified.

Saving Costs

By consolidating a multitude of services into a single platform you are saving on the costs of purchasing individual products and solutions, therefore reducing your IT expenditure and delivering ROI.

Scalability and Flexibility

SASE’s cloud-native architecture allows for simple scalability providing you with the flexibility to grow your network and support your changing business requirements. This is helpful when you need to scale up or down depending on bandwidth usage, for example, a contact centre during seasonal busy periods that needs to scale up.

Data Protection and Compliance

Meet compliance regulations and protect your data with SASE ensuring that your business meets legal regulations.

Today and Tomorrow

SASE network will enable businesses to provide a more streamlined, secure, and efficient way to manage their network. Saving costs, enabling employees to access the corporate network wherever they are and ensuring they have a robust, reliable, and secure network that can withstand the increasing cyber security threats of today and tomorrow.
