At a Glance Public What is SASE? In 2019, Gartner coined the term secure access service edge (SASE) to describe a new approach to networking and security. The SASE model consolidates numerous networking and security functions — traditionally delivered in siloed point solutions — in a single, integrated offering. Gartner describes SASE in terms of five primary functions: • Software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) • Firewall as a service (FWaaS) • Secure web gateway (SWG) • Cloud access security broker (CASB) • Zero trust network access (ZTNA) SASE is not a product — it's an architecture. A SASE approach lets organizations: • Connect users seamlessly to the applications and data they need to access — in any environment, from any location • Control access and enforce the right security protection anywhere users work • Converge networking and security functions to deliver secure connectivity as a service SASE by the numbers of enterprises will have explicit strategies to adopt SASE by 2024 3 believe network security is more difficult than two years ago 2 of requests to access protected apps come from outside the business walls 1 of organizations are either using or evaluating SD-WAN in some capacity 2 of enterprises will have adopted SWG, CASB, ZTNA, and branch FWaaS capabilities from the same vendor by 2023 3 40% 64% 45% 80% 20% © 2021 Cisco and/or its affiliates.
