Secure the Future of Your Workplace by Adopting SASE Technology

We’ve all seen the shift in the modern workplace in recent years. With hybrid and remote work models now being commonplace, the lines get blurred between the office and an employee’s home environment. Because of this shift, employees can access company information from multiple devices and locations, bringing about new security concerns. 

Your Company’s Cloud Security Posture

This evolving digital landscape has businesses of all sizes adopting multi-layered cloud security posture. The modern business landscape is defined by cloud-based applications with distributed workforces making this change necessary. Traditional security is no longer enough. 

A multi-layered cloud security approach goes beyond traditional anti-malware and firewalls, offering a combination of security tools and strategies. Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) excels in this area by integrating various security functions like firewalls, intrusion detection, and data loss prevention (DLP) into a single, cloud-delivered platform. This allows for a layered defense that adapts to different threats and vulnerabilities. By adopting a secure cloud posture with SASE integration, you can ensure your data is protected even in the cloud environment.

Like software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN), SASE connects remote users and your organization’s locations to the organization’s central secure network, as opposed to linking directly to the internet. However, SASE adds additional network security functions. 

Likewise, anti-malware, while crucial, is no longer enough. Cybercriminals develop sophisticated malware that can bypass traditional defenses. A multi-layered approach, supported by SASE, provides redundancy. With SASE, even if malware breaches one layer, others can still act as barriers, protecting your data and applications. 

SASE combines network and security-as-a-service functions together1. These functions are then delivered in a single cloud service accessible beyond your office walls. Now Fortinet security tools like firewalls, secure web gateways and zero-trust access can all be implemented, even outside of your office building, to ensure remote user security.

The Power of SASE

SASE technology empowers your organization to secure access to cloud applications and data, regardless of location or device. This cloud-based security framework can integrate a variety of network and security functions. Here are just a few of the ways the SASE architecture can benefit your organization:

  • Zero Trust Network Access: SASE architecture enforces a “zero trust” security model, where every user and device must be continuously verified before gaining access to resources.
  • Centralized Management: Manage and enforce security policies across your entire network from a single, centralized platform.
  • Improved User Experience: SASE networking allows for secure access to cloud applications from anywhere, on any device, without compromising security.

Benefits of SASE Architecture

The SASE framework offers a wide range of benefits for organizations navigating the modern security landscape. Take a look at these use cases that showcase the power of SASE. 

  1. Remote Work: SASE secures access to corporate resources for remote workers, regardless of location or device.
  2. Cloud Security and Adoption: SASE simplifies and secures cloud adoption by integrating security controls directly into the cloud environment.
  3. Enhancing Network Performance: SASE leverages SD-WAN technology to optimize network traffic flow. This ensures smooth and reliable connections for cloud-based applications, files and other company resources. 
  4. Branch Security: Eliminate the need for complex security configurations at branch offices. SASE centralizes security policies and enforces them consistently across all locations.
  5. Threat Detection and Response: Because of SASE’s advanced threat detection capabilities paired with centralized monitoring and analytics, your security team or provider can respond faster and more efficiently to security threats.

Taking the Next Step

By adopting a multi-layered cloud security approach that incorporates SASE technology, you can build a future-proof security posture for your organization. This will empower your workforce to work flexibly and securely, while giving you peace of mind that your valuable data is protected.
