Secure Access Service Edge (SASE — pronounced “sassy”) represents the convergence of several advanced security and network-optimization technologies. By combining cutting-edge network security, modern SD-WAN, and Zero Trust Network Access technologies, SASE can dramatically improve overall efficiency while making it easy to manage the changes brought by digital transformation, a distributed mobile workforce, the rapid growth of cloud-based services, and evolving edge computing platforms.
So, if you haven’t yet started planning and thinking in terms of adopting SASE for your network, it’s a good bet that you will soon. But like just about everything, there are better and worse ways to go about it — and by following best practices, you can reduce your SASE adoption time by half.
Some of these best practices are described in Gartner's report called 2021 Strategic Roadmap for SASE Convergence.
Expert insights on SASE convergence
Barracuda's Engineering SVP Tim Jefferson and Product Marketing VP Mike Goldgof are going to host a webinar on September 29 where they’ll unpack that Gartner report to present its key findings, recommendations, and insights. Attending is the easiest way to gain the practical knowledge you need to do SASE right.
Here are just a few of the topics from the report that Tim and Mike will cover:
- Using trust-based access controls to protect anytime, anywhere access to digital assets
- Leveraging new firewall capabilities to boost branch office security and optimize connectivity
- Strategies to slash SASE complexity and cost
SASE is the future of networks and security for businesses that want to remain competitive in this fast-changing world. Register now to reserve your spot at this webinar so you can be sure to start your SASE journey on the right foot.
