What is Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) Software?

Secure access service edge software, often referred to as SASE, is a cybersecurity offering that encompasses enterprises’ security across all edges. In doing so, SASE platforms are unifying networking, via an SD-WAN foundation, with a range of security features placed as close to the end-user as possible without existing on the end-user’s device. SASE platforms are designed for global organizations and enterprises.

There are some core differences between SASE offerings and traditional enterprise security tools. For instance, SASE should:

  • Have a cloud-native architecture, in contrast with on-premise or virtual machine-based technology

  • Be globally distributed, in order to place the security measures as close to the end-user’s access point as possible

  • Be entity-focused, rather than perimeter-focused. This is a conceptual approach to securing an organization’s edges that better adapts to mobile-first and IoT environments that are becoming commonplace.

  • Be a unified, single-pass platform, rather than a collection of point solutions or acquired products merged into a SASE-esque offering. A singular architecture is crucial to maintaining network performance without sacrificing security.

SASE’s centralized networking and security architecture comes with several benefits over patchwork solutions, especially for global enterprises. Consolidating disparate functions into a single platform allows for more efficient networking and security. For instance, using a single system mitigates latency that would otherwise come from passing data across multiple security tools and networks globally. A centralized solution also reduces redundant systems costs and enables more efficient networking and security management.

SASE Capabilities

SASE is based on 2 core areas-- networking and edge security. Networking is managed via an SD-WAN capability, which can be native to the SASE platform or integrated as a 3rd-party offering.

On top of this SD-WAN functionality, SASE products provide a range of security features placed globally. SASE products should include most or all of these core security functions:

  • Next-Generation Firewall as a Service

  • Zero Trust policies for protection against external and internal threats

  • Secure web gateways

  • Cloud access security broker

  • Data Loss Prevention and data protection policies

SASE Platform Comparison

As a still-developing market, comparing existing or emerging SASE products may be challenging. Consider these factors when comparing products:

  1. Architecture: How each vendor structures its SASE offering matters. Cloud-native, single-pass infrastructure provides crucial performance benefits compared to VM or on-premise products hosted in the cloud.

  2. Networking vs. security legacy: most SASE providers have origins in either networking or security products. Their legacy and prior experience in each space can signal the depth and robustness of their features in each aspect of SASE. There are some vendors that have specialized in SASE offerings, these are still a minority.

  3. Global distribution: SASE offerings should be globally distributed, but buyers should focus on the distribution of datacenters and access points where their end-users are. How well does each vendor cover the areas where your edges are actually found?

Pricing Information

Pricing and licensing models are likely to change over time as the SASE market matures. SD-WAN-centric platforms may trend more towards pricing per bandwidth amount, while security-centric vendors are more likely to adopt pricing per entity, or location, per month.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Secure Access Service Edge?

Secure Access Service Edge is an emerging technology that unifies global networking and security into a single platform. They usually do so by hosting a cloud-native architecture on datacenters around the world to bring security tools as close to the network edge and endpoints as possible.

What’s the difference between SASE and SD-WAN?

SASE builds on SD-WAN concepts to natively integrate security capabilities into global networking. However, SD-WAN is not native to the cloud, and can only be adapted to cloud environments after the fact. SD-WAN also connects disparate locations to a central private network, while SASE allows for dispersed networking.

Why is SASE necessary?

SASE platforms enable more efficient and scalable networking at a global level, while also providing modern security necessary for global enterprises.

Who uses SASE?

SASE is used by large enterprises with a global presence, particularly those with a heavy reliance on reliable networking and robust data security across the enterprise.
