ESG Report: Quantifying the Benefits of SASE


Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) is a new approach to networking and security that reinvents these technologies as converged cloud services. The approach has generated excitement because it addresses the problem many security teams have faced during 2020: securing a highly distributed and mobile workforce. However, the SASE market remains in its early stages and organizations lack proper insight into the benefits of adopting a SASE architecture.

In this report, conducted by the Enterprise Security Group (ESG), explore these key insights:

  • Organizations with mature SASE approaches were better prepared to support a distributed workforce
  • Mature SASE organizations are expanding security functionality while simultaneously reducing the number of vendors they use
  • SASE reduces the friction associated with the adoption of cloud services
  • Organizations prioritizing SASE benefit from reduced security costs
