As IT environments take on increased complexity, organizations need an alternative to traditional, data center-oriented security models.
Create a comprehensive, cloud-first security posture with Secure Access Service Edge (SASE). SASE unifies traditionally siloed networking and security services within cloud-based architecture with a single management point.
SASE is the convergence of networking and security services in a scalable, cloud-centric environment that delivers reliable, secure connectivity to private and cloud-hosted services for endpoints and remote offices.
The workforce today requires reliable access to applications from a multitude of locations/devices as well as a consistent and secure experience and interface. SASE protects devices, users and data within the network, regardless of location, as well as reduces latency and complexity associated with legacy VPN solutions.
Expansion of the edge across the growing Internet of Things (IoT), remote workforce and IT landscape in general has created an increasing number of gaps in enterprise security and connectivity. SASE modernizes cybersecurity and WAN across the organization’s entire network architecture and streamlines the management process.
In 2022, 86% of organizations were impacted by technical debt.
Disjointed point solutions, unnecessary complexity and outdated technology hold businesses back from achieving the agility needed to grow and innovate. SASE offers the opportunity to replace or consolidate redundant or legacy tools that contribute to operational inefficiencies and technical debt.
SASE works to consolidate and complement many of the network and security solutions organizations may currently have in place.
SASE is not necessarily a replacement for SD-WAN as SASE does not remove the critical need for dynamic traffic steering or application-aware routing, particularly for on-premises hosted applications, services and networks.
As a longtime provider of innovative IT solutions, Insight helps clients identify the best approach to SASE implementation and enables them to take a stair-step approach to adoption, building on capabilities as ready, with strategic support for every phase.
