Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) has become one of the hottest topics in the IT industry. By 2024, Gartner predicts that 40% of companies will adopt a SASE architecture. The well-defined, static, and finite network edge of the past is being replaced by business users who are working remotely and accessing business information systems beyond the corporate data centre.

But what exactly is SASE and will it make enterprise data more secure? How will organizations secure their data in a cloud-first world when the user and information are outside the traditional enterprise boundary?

This presentation cuts through the hype to explain the fundamentals of SASE and how it compares to typical network and cloud security architectures. It will also cover real-world use cases for securing SASE, and the benefits of moving to a cloud-first SASE platform.

Join this exclusive virtual session and:

  •    Gain an understanding Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) architectures;
  •    Learn the major security and business benefits of moving to a SASE platform; and
  •    Review practical enterprise SASE use cases that apply to your industry.
