SASE is the combination of advanced WAN edge functions, unified and deployed at the branch, married with a rich set of cloud-delivered security services. Most enterprises prefer best-of-breed WAN technology and best-of-breed cloud-delivered security, without compromising either. According to the results of a recent Ponemon Institute security best practices survey, of more than 1800 networking and security IT professionals, more than 70% of respondents favored multi-vendor integrations that simplify deployment and ongoing operations without compromising networking or security capabilities. But how can we make a multi-vendor solution easy to deploy and easy to update? To implement cloud-delivered security and deliver the best cloud app performance, you must configure secure IPsec tunnels between branch locations and cloud security enforcement points. And it’s imperative that you configure enforcement points to be as close to the branch location as possible to minimize delay which in turn results in the best application performance. With integrated orchestration that automates a best-of-breed multi-vendor SASE architecture, IT and the enterprise realizes the best in operational efficiency without compromising either the networking component or the cloud security component of a SASE architecture.
