What is a Secure Access Service Edge (S.A.S.E.)?

SASE is an industry term for a set of technologies designed to do one thing: secure access to Internet services, regardless of a user’s location or device.

Forward-thinking business leaders are quickly beginning to consider SASE as the new way to secure their employees, and their work, in today’s working environment.

Historically, security investment centred around the office and its local network. That used to make sense as applications with important data were stored on-premise and all (or the majority of) employees were office-based.


However, today we use cloud-hosted SaaS applications to store data and employees often work outside of the office.

As the move to cloud-based applications and home-based work began to take off, VPNs were used as the solution to re-route employee website traffic back through office security before going out to the broader internet.

Today, that solution seems archaic.

While it kept work safe; in driving terms, it would be like going from London to Manchester via Newcastle.

SASE brings office-level security to all workers, regardless of location or device, without any clunky workarounds. Talk to us if you’re keen to assess whether SSE is right for your organisation.

Cloud Access Security Broker

Helps to map authorised and unauthorised cloud usage, use to whitelist and/or blacklist applications as appropriate.

Prevent employees from saving company files to their own personal cloud storage systems (e.g. Dropbox). 

Zero Trust Network Access

Provide secure remote access to SaaS applications. Verify users, their access rights and device security every time.
