Navigating the SASE Landscape

Networking and security have traditionally been separate solutions layered into complex architectures. While some vendors attempted to combine security into their networking gear, this often meant throwing more boxes at customers or stitching basic filtering into their gear.

Realizing this chaos required a better solution. Several vendors pursued efforts to bring networking and security together in a single solution, to varying degrees of success. And in 2019, Gartner defined these efforts as SASE, or Secure Access Service Edge.
