Decoding why SASE is SSE-first
Date: Thursday, March 31st at 11 a.m. PT / 2 p.m. ET
The pandemic brought a multitude of changes across every industry, including cybersecurity. The sudden shift to remote work led to the rapid adoption of cloud-based services and SaaS solutions. As businesses prepare to open up in the post-pandemic world, they've realized that conventional ideas of corporate perimeters have been altered permanently. Traditional network and security solutions are not cloud-compatible and are often hindered by geographical limitations. With the hybrid workplace model being implemented all over the world, the cybersecurity challenges that come with such a largely distributed workforce will be overwhelming for IT admins.
Secure access service edge (SASE) was introduced by Gartner in 2019 as a convergence of network and security functions to be delivered from a unified cloud-based platform. SASE was designed to revamp cloud security by enabling businesses to overcome the cybersecurity challenges arising from the cloud-driven world. Later in 2021, Gartner introduced security service edge (SSE), which incorporates the security half of SASE, and consists of secure web gateways, cloud access security brokers, and zero trust network access. Although they sound similar, SASE and SSE are not the same.
