Frequently Asked Questions
What is SASE?
How does SASE work?
Data-first Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) can increase productivity, cut costs, reduce risk and streamline compliance.
Users benefit massively from Data-first SASE by being able to work anywhere with data, securely. Additionally, they do not need to use VPNs to access private applications and enjoy access from over 300+ Points of Presence around the world.
Organizations reduce risk through improved security, which can be delivered to both managed and unmanaged (BYOD) devices. Data-first SASE also enables organizations to get rid of legacy tools for modern ones – such as replacing VPNs with ZTNA – while incorporating more granular control over the applications user's access.
Compliance is streamlined through centralized visibility and control, which enables IT teams to show auditors they understand what is happening in their environment and how to make quick adjustments. Data-first SASE incorporates Forcepoint's industry-leading DLP, which comes with over 1,600 out-of-the-box data classifiers. This enables teams to quickly meet complaince with pre-built policies for HIPAA, GDPR and other regulations.
SASE is an affordable alternative to the point-product security strategy many organizations have come to know. Secure SD-WAN helps organizations realize large savings and higher performance over traditional networking platforms.
What are the benefits of SASE?
Data-first SASE benefits include centralized policy management, data security everywhere, distributed policy enforcement and reliable scalability. Organizations also see benefits from the security tools themselves, such as the ability to provide contractors, guests or unmanaged device users (BYOD) access to private applications without a VPN.
How does SASE relate to Zero Trust?
Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) can make it easier for organizations to adopt Zero Trust. Security products that are part of SASE, such as Zero Trust Network Access, can limit access to applications users shouldn't have access to. This reduces the attack surface of the organization in the event of a successful phishing attack. Other tools such as a Cloud Access Security Broker can limit how users interact with data to ensure it isn't leaked or exfiltrated.
What security capabilities does SASE include?
Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) covers Security Service Edge (SSE) and network security. SSE technologies manage access and secure data to cloud, web and private applications through Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Secure Web Gateway (SWG) and Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA). Having strong data security controls within these SSE tools is critical. Software-defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) provides both resiliency and security for an organization's network.
What does the transition to SASE look like?
Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) can be adopted one product at a time or all at once. Data-first SASE provides a modular approach to SASE, enabling organizations to deploy CASB, SWG, ZTNA, DLP or SD-WAN at their own pace with the confidence that future deployments will integrate seamlessly. Forcepoint ONE, which delivers Data-first SASE, can usually be deployed between 45 and 90 days, depending on the size of the business and the number of policies to migrate.
