With people and data moving everywhere, security has to be agile to keep up. Now, the key issue facing many organizations is how to most effectively provide safe access to corporate resources on the web, in cloud apps and in internal, private apps anywhere, while keeping data safe everywhere.
SASE has rapidly become the headliner in IT investments for enabling the new distributed workforce. However, there’s a lot of confusion about where to start that’s made worse by vendors who are simply using the term “SASE” for re-badged point products. Of course, most SASE solutions are cloud-delivered. They also tend to be access-centric, that is, focused on controlling and protecting access to those corporate resources.
In our new whitepaper, “5 Steps to SASE,” we can help organizations start on their path to what we’re calling a data-centric SASE architecture. It covers:
- How security teams and leaders can begin from different starting points to build out their converged SASE architecture, one cloud-delivered capability at a time.
- A definition of data-centric SASE and how protecting users and data is different from a SASE approach focused solely on access.
- The benefits and capabilities of data-centric SASE, which includes data protection, threat protection, application security and network security.
- We list the top 4 advantages that you should look for in a data-centric SASE platform.
