Common-Sense Security:

The case for Unified SASE as a Service

It’s not rocket science, it’s network security. And yet for many organizations, the road to securing employees and information often results in trade-offs to performance, agility, scalable services, and user experience. While first-generation SASE solutions promised companies a way out of this complexity, those early deployments failed to resolve the root causes of these growth pains. In this roundtable discussion, we’ll break down how Unified SASE as a Service finally gets it right in integrating network services with secure Zero Trust as a foundation. Our panel of experts and users of Unified SASE will share case studies illustrating its impact, the lessons learned, and how this platform can even harness new technologies (like AI and advanced analytics) to provide organizations a seamless, frictionless interstate of secure network transactions.
