Key Considerations for a SASE Implementation

Businesses in recent years have needed to adjust to the “new norm” of remote and hybrid work environments. This brings new challenges for employers to ensure their employees are working on fast and secure networks. Trying to find solutions that offer security, scalability, and native support for remote work can feel overwhelming and you may be unsure of what direction to take.

Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) combines security and networking into a single cloud service and is ideally suited for organizations managing a hybrid workforce. SASE offers a number of important benefits:

  • Enhanced security
  • Improved scalability
  • Faster network connections

…no matter where your employees are working.

Below are three important considerations when evaluating SASE and determining if it is right for your organization.

Understand Your Users and Their Environment

Considering the users of your SASE migration is crucial because their unique needs will help determine the configuration needed for the implementation. A major benefit to SASE is its support for zero-trust security which requires access controls to be defined based on company needs. By understanding your users and the structure of your IT environment, you can better ensure a smooth migration to SASE.

Be Aware of Compliance Regulations

Nearly every industry is governed by regulations designed to protect sensitive or personal information. Some examples of new laws include the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). Companies should keep these policies and regulations in mind when constructing their SASE architecture.

Embrace Security Advancements

In order to allow security teams to have a widened scope into their company’s network, SASE consolidates functions into a single service. This simplifies and streamlines services, creating more visibility for detecting previously unknown security issues. 

Our partner, Cato Networks, is the world’s first SASE platform which combines SD-WAN and security into a single cloud service. This service allows for optimization and secure application usage for all users no matter their location. By using Cato, you can migrate from MPLS to SD-WAN with ease while enabling secure branch Internet access anywhere. Migrations seamlessly integrate cloud data centers with mobile users creating a network with a zero-trust architecture.
