Secure Access Service Edge
Secure access service edge, or SASE, is an emerging cybersecurity concept first described by Gartner in an August 2019 report. SASE addresses the need for a new approach to network security driven by factors like remote users, software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications, and data moving between on-premises and public cloud environments.
SASE is the consolidation of multiple network security services in a unified, cloud-delivered service model. The SASE security model benefits organizations in multiple ways that enhance flexibility, reduce complexity, provide cost savings, increase performance, enhance threat prevention, and improve data protection.
Palo Alto Networks’ Prisma is a SASE solution that addresses the limitations of traditional security platforms when supporting cloud-based infrastructure. The following advantages are achievable with Prisma.
- Superior security with Zero Trust Network Access 2.0. Prisma secures all applications used by a remote and hybrid workforce no matter where they are located. The risks of data breaches are substantially reduced by protecting application traffic.
- Security operations are simplified by consolidating multiple networking and security solutions into a single service.
- Prisma’s cloud-native architecture enables it to perform Autonomous Digital Experience Management (ADEM) to ensure exceptional user experiences.
