Gartner SASE: ‘The Future of Network Security is in the Cloud’

Industry Analyst Report

As digital transformation unfolds at a rapid pace, edge protection is becoming increasingly important. Whereas people, applications, and data were once located behind security gateways, today’s perimeter is much more mobile. Safeguarding your edge means following people, apps, data, and connectivity to the cloud. And that’s where the need for what third-party analyst Gartner calls, “a converged, cloud-delivered secure access service edge” comes in.  Gartner has recognized Forcepoint as a representative vendor within the emerging Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) market. This Gartner report offers key insights about SASE and the future of network security.

Download to discover findings such as:

  • “By 2024, at least 40% of enterprises will have explicit strategies to adopt SASE, up from less than 1% in late 2018.”

  • “Inspecting and understanding data context will be required for applying a SASE policy.”
