Frequently asked questions

Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) is a cloud-based enterprise security framework that addresses the connectivity and security challenges of hybrid working and business transformation.

SD-WAN, SSE and SASE all aim to connect users securely, it is the characteristics of your organisation that will determine which solution is appropriate. SD-WAN is more suited towards customers with a heavy physical presence - properties that need securely connecting with a device heavy-network (IoT or IIoT). SSE is suited towards cloud-first businesses that don’t need to connect locations or fixed devices. SASE is primed for organisations with a hybrid operation - users working remotely and accessing resources stored between Data Centres and the Public Cloud.
