What is SASE?

Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) by Gartner's definition is the convergence of networking and security to modernize connectivity and simplify security within distributed environments.

Delivered within a cloud-native architecture, the SASE framework enables organizations to deliver security capabilities via the cloud to wherever the end user is, enabling people to be more productive, safely. SASE can make Zero Trust initiatives easier to implement.

A true SASE solution will unify a Security Service Edge (SSE) platform, which includes Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), Secure Web Gateway (SWG) and Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), with Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) from one vendor.

The Forcepoint Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) solution is a combination of the Forcepoint ONE Security Services Edge (SSE) platform and FlexEdge Secure SD-WAN.

Why SASE is Necessary - and Gaining Momentum

Cloud adoption is accelerating and a shift to the hybrid workforce requires security and connectivity to move to where your people and data are today.

Old approaches can’t keep up. With budgetary pressures and an increasing skills gap in IT security, organizations are moving to SASE to simplify their complex array of networking and security products.

SASE connects the modern workforce to business resources from anywhere, to help organizations secure access to applications however employees need to reach them.

Forcepoint’s Data-First SASE takes the Zero Trust principles that SASE seeks to embrace one step further. It blends the proven networking capabilities of our FlexEdge Secure SD-WAN with our cutting-edge Security Service Edge (SSE) platform, Forcepoint ONE to deliver better control over how people get to business applications and use sensitive data. The result is a security stack that’s easier to manage, an organization that’s much safer, and a more enjoyable user experience.
