Fortinet Delivers the Most Flexible SASE Solution
Digital innovation, cloud adoption, and the recent widespread shift to remote work have fundamentally transformed the network. And with the increased reliance on cloud-based resources, such as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications and data moving from the data center to multi-cloud environments, the need for a new approach to secure network access—especially the challenges of implicit trust inherent in legacy network architectures—has become clear.
Today’s organizations require immediate, uninterrupted access to network and cloud-based resources and data, including business-critical applications, from any location, on any device, at any time. The challenge is that many of the issues resulting from digital innovation efforts, such as dynamically changing network configurations and the rapid expansion of the attack surface, mean that many traditional security solutions no longer provide the level of security and access control that organizations and users require.
Secure access service edge (SASE) is an emerging enterprise strategy that combines network security functions with WAN capabilities. SASE’s goal is to support the dynamic, secure access needs of today’s organizations—right in line with the security-driven networking strategy that Fortinet has been actively developing and promoting for years. SASE plays a critical role in ensuring that security can be delivered anywhere, including at the WAN edge, cloud edge, data-center (DC) edge, core edge, and endpoint devices used by today’s heavily mobile remote workforce.
