Organizations are feeling a shift in the world of networking and security as they rapidly adopt and embrace the cloud. On-premises private data centers are no longer the place for data and workloads to exist. With this shift, security and networking are brought closer than ever. Enterprises need speed, visibility, security and reliability without compromise. Enter, the secure access service edge, better known as SASE. This evolved concept of cloud security architecture outlines a convergence of multiple security functions to offer identity-based secure access. How can your organization best position itself for the transition?

In this session, you will discuss:

  • Problems SASE can address in the modern enterprise
  • Benefits of moving to a SASE architecture
  • Insights from organizations adopting SASE today
