What is SASE?

Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) solution is a cloud architecture model that combines network and security-as-a-service functions together and delivers them as a single cloud service.  Conceptually, SASE extends networking and security capabilities beyond where they’re typically available. This lets work-from-anywhere and remote workers, to take advantage of firewall as a service (FWaaS), secure web gateway (SWG), zero-trust network access (ZTNA), and a medley of threat detection functions.  SASE is composed of Security Service Edge (SSE) and SD-WAN.   


Why do you need SASE?

Enterprise networks are increasingly reliant on cloud-based applications to run their businesses and support distributed workflows to support remote and mobile users. While networks have advanced rapidly enough to support the workflows of these remote endpoints, most security tools have not kept pace, rendering VPN-only solutions obsolete. For organisations to remain competitive, all endpoints must be secured and managed with the same security and networking policies as their on-premises infrastructure, regardless of where they’re located.

Key Use Cases of FortiSASE™

Scalable Cloud-Delivered Security and Networking for Hybrid Workforce

For remote users or branch locations no longer protected by the corporate perimeter, direct internet access expands the attack surface and related risks. FortiSASE offers comprehensive Secure Web Gateway (SWG) and Firewall-as-a-Service (FWaaS) capabilities for both managed and unmanaged devices by supporting an agent and agentless approach.

Traditional VPNs cannot address the challenges faced by today’s hybrid workforce. Because they do not inspect connections, they inadvertently expand the attack surface and increase the risk of lateral threat movement. FortiSASE Secure Private Access offers the industry’s most flexible secure connectivity to corporate applications. Organizations can enforce granular access to applications with Universal ZTNA, enabling explicit per-application access and enabling the critical shift from implicit to explicit trust. FortiSASE Secure Private Access also offers organizations the benefits of seamless integration with SD-WAN networks and access to corporate applications by automatically finding the shortest path—powered by the intelligent steering and dynamic routing capabilities available in FortiSASE.

With the rapid increase in SaaS adoption, many organizations struggle with Shadow IT challenges and stopping data exfiltration. FortiSASE Secure SaaS Access, with Next-Generation Dual-Mode CASB using both inline and API-based support, provides comprehensive visibility by identifying key SaaS applications and reporting risky applications to overcome Shadow IT challenges. Next-generation CASB also offers granular control of applications to secure sensitive data and detect and remediate malware in applications across both managed and unmanaged devices.
