The SASE Model: A New Approach to SecurityPalo Alto Networks' Sean Duca Describes the Cloud-Delivered Service Model
The emerging cloud-delivered service model known as security access service edge, or SASE, is designed to help to simplify security for remote access, says Sean Duca of Palo Alto Networks, who explains how the model works.
SASE converges network capabilities and security functions by uniting "zero trust," SD-WAN, data loss prevention, cloud access security brokers, and more into a cohesive platform, Duca says.
"CISOs now don't have to procure individual discrete security solutions and tie it into the network security layer; instead, they can source from one logical place using the SASE security model," he says in a video interview with Information Security Media Group.
Duca, a vice president of one of the early providers of SASE based-services, discusses how this security model works in an enterprise environment. He offers insights on:
- Why SASE is the next step for network security;
- The security and business drivers for SASE's adoption;
- Why identity is paramount in the SASE model.
Duca is the vice president and regional chief security officer for the Asia Pacific and Japan at Palo Alto Networks. He works on the development of threat intelligence and security best practices. With over 18 years of experience in IT security, he acts as an adviser to organizations, helping them improve their security postures and align security strategically with business initiatives. Before joining Palo Alto Networks, he spent 15 years in a variety of roles at Intel Security, most recently as CTO for the Asia Pacific region.
