What’s Driving the Move to the Secure Access Service Edge

What’s Driving the Move to the Secure Access Service Edge (SASE)?

Digital business transformation and the shift to a more distributed workforce are driving the need for anywhere, anytime access to resources, wherever they may exist. These changes require networking and security to move to the cloud, where they can be delivered as a single converged service with flexible deployment and consumption models.

 Cisco is Driving the Revolution of Secure Access Everywhere

The shift toward a more distributed workforce is not new, but it has recently accelerated. While the principles of SASE have been forming for years, SASE is now in the forefront as remote access to applications and “work from anywhere” has become a top organisational priority. With this shift, the data centre is no longer the hub – the user is. To give them secure access to work resources and applications, users must now be treated as a “branch of one.”

With SASE, you can Accelerate Your Journey to the Cloud

Cisco’s SASE approach delivers simplicity, visibility, and efficiency. Organisations can build on what they already have by protecting on-premises and cloud investments with the flexibility to evolve the infrastructure in the future. As you transition services from on-premises to the cloud, you can enforce policies consistently across all environments.


Unleash your workforce by delivering a seamless connection to applications in any environment from any location.


Simplify security, streamline policies, and increase protection with a multifunction cloud security service.


Unite security and networking through a flexible, integrated approach that meets multicloud demands at scale.

SASE vs. the Traditional VPN

Today’s workforce is outgrowing the traditional VPNs that previously supported remote work. With larger numbers of employees now either partially or fully remote, organisations must provide a reliable and secure means for employees to work from anywhere — both on- and off-network.

SASE is the scalable answer for the new workplace that keeps both employee and company security top of mind. By using a single cloud-based platform instead of separate products, organisations can save on costs and reduce complexity for IT teams. SASE will scale to workforces of any size, allowing users to connect to company systems from any company-approved device, from any location.
