Exploring SASE: The union of SD-WAN & cloud-based SWGs
Enterprise networks are on the verge of a major tipping point, driven by the shift from employees working at a corporate office to working from anywhere.
Enterprises are quickly realizing that legacy network and security architectures are inadequate.
Businesses must evolve toward a unified networking and security service that increases scalability, agility and security in a highly distributed user and application environment.
This paper from Dell’Oro Group proposes that two technologies, SD-WAN and cloud-based secure web gateway (SWG), are merging to satisfy new requirements and are the basis of secure access service edge (SASE).
