5 Steps to SASE and Zero Trust with a focus on Connecting and Protecting Branch Offices in a Cloud World


The pandemic of 2020 caused many IT teams to perform heroic acts to keep people productive amid the unprecedented exodus from the office. With the focus now shifting to enabling people to work safely from anywhere, not just their home, many organizations are looking to replace the short-term workarounds they put in place with more sustainable solutions. As SASE was designed specifically for this use case, interest in this cloud-based architecture has been greatly accelerated.

So where should start? Let’s explore what’s holding you back. In a 5-step approach, you can select your on-ramp in your journey to a SASE architecture and avoid looking in the rearview mirror, because if you’ve implemented SASE successfully, you’ll achieve a Zero Trust approach. In this session we dive into step 4 and learn how:

  • Direct-to-internet connections replace MPLS due to cost and performance
  • SD-WAN enables smart site connectivity parallel to agent user connectivity
  • SASE cloud security is key to keeping resource access safe and seamless
