For IT leaders that only require a subset of Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) capabilities, preferring to focus mainly on the security aspects and leaving out the networking components, Security Service Edge (SSE), an emerging new cloud-native security framework, is potentially a better fit.
With the adoption of new technologies, new workplace practices, and accelerating digital transformation, security risks for financial services firms will increase. Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) can help balance security and performance requirements.
Implementing SASE is unlike rolling out any other technology. It requires dedicated coordination between security and networking teams, a streamlined security and networking architecture, and a fundamental understanding of the business goals and current processes.
Over the next 10 years, we will see companies continue to replace their on-premise network and security appliances with a secured corporate network over the internet. Remote access solutions like zero trust network access (ZTNA) and secure access server edge (SASE) are here to stay.
To achieve the full promise of cloud and digital transformation, enterprises must transform not just their networking but also security architectures. SASE is moving organisations in this new direction.
