What is SASE (Secure Access Service Edge)
SASE, or secure access service edge, is a cloud-based security paradigm that combines software-defined networking and network security tasks and provides them through a single service provider. Gartner, a global research and consultancy group, invented the term ‘SASE’ in 2019. SASE’s networking and network security convergence addresses digital business transformation, edge computing, and workforce mobility. SASE (pronounced “sassy”) may be easily scaled up and scaled-down, and invoiced depending on consumption like a cloud service. As a result, in an era of significant shift, it might be an appealing alternative.
