SASE Architecture: Cloud-First Solutions

Unlock the full potential of your network with the secure SASE architecture.

What is SASE Architecture?

Secure access service edge (SASE) is a wide area network architecture that combines software-defined routing and networking capabilities with security functions like secure web gateways (SWG), cloud access security brokers (CASB), next-gen firewalls (NGFW), and zero-trust network access (ZTNA).

Key Components of SASE Architecture Framework


1. Software-defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN)

A software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) is a WAN architecture that uses software-defined networking (SDN) technology to manage network traffic and services.

SD-WAN helps in SASE architecture by providing a secure and reliable way to connect different sites and applications across WANs. It also helps to optimize resources and traffic, thereby improving performance.

2. Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB)

Cloud access security brokers (CASBs) are security services that allow organizations to extend security controls to cloud services and SaaS applications.

In CASB, the cloud service consumer's identity and access management (IAM) needs are addressed by the cloud service provider, who can provide IAM as a service. CASB solutions may also include specific features to address the need for cloud security, such as data loss prevention, threat detection, and incident response.

3. Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA)

Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) is a security architecture that eliminates the need for traditional per-user trust models and instead relies on identity-based access control and least privilege.

ZTNA helps in SASE architecture framework by providing a way to share files between different systems. This can help to speed up file transfers and keep everything organized. Additionally, it can help to ensure that everyone has the latest version of a file.

4. NGFW & Firewall as a Service (FWaaS)

Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) is a type of firewall that is designed to protect against the latest threats by using advanced features and technologies.

NGFW can help in a SASE architecture framework by providing an extra layer of security between the user and the network. This can help to protect against threats such as malware and ransomware, and can also help to ensure that data is properly protected when it is transmitted or stored.

5. Secure Web Getaway (SWG)

Secure web getaway is a term used to describe a web-based system that is designed to protect the privacy and security of its users

Secure web getaway can help in SASE network architecture by providing secure internet access to users. It can also help to protect the privacy of users by encrypting their data.

SASE Architecture: A Cloud-First Approach

SASE incorporates a cloud-first approach to deliver a secure network solution. It is different from the traditional network security model, which is based on the premise that all devices are on-premises. The cloud-first approach enables SASE to deploy security solutions faster and more efficiently, and it provides customers with the flexibility to access their data from any location.

A SASE architecture is an automated, cloud-based solution that improves performance and security while reducing costs. A SASE architecture is distinguished as it is a single platform that integrates all of an organization’s networking needs into a single management interface. This allows for easier and more efficient network management, as well as improved performance and security.

How is SASE Delivered?

Aryaka's Managed SASE solution is unique and different. We built a cloud-first architecture that combines a global, dual private core backbone consisting of a layer 2 and layer 3 meshed service fabric, built-in on-ramps to Cloud and SaaS providers, embedded cloud security, on-premises security, and integrated service workflows. All are accessible via a single, cloud-based portal for observability and control of the network and applications. Enterprises can choose a service optimized for performance and optimized for cost from us as a single provider.

Aryaka’s mesh of points of presence (POPs), powered by Aryakas FleXcoreTM, a dual L2 and L3 private backbone, provides unprecedented global reach with the highest degree of application performance predictability and availability with SLA-backed services delivery. Aryaka can service users and workers across all business sites, homes, and mobile locations giving them the resilient connectivity, reliable security, and a superior application experience that makes it easy to collaborate and be productive from anywhere in the world, including connectivity to China where large markets and manufacturing hubs reside.

FAQs about SASE Architecture

  1. What are the benefits of a SASE architecture framework?

  2. There are many benefits of SASE architecture framework. One of the primary benefits is that it would provide a more secure way for organizations to exchange data with their customers. In addition, it would also help to improve performance and reduce costs.

  3. How is SASE Architecture different from SD-WAN Architecture?

  4. SD-WAN architecture is focused on optimizing and managing the Wide Area Network (WAN) while SASE architecture is focused on secure communications. SASE architecture is also designed to work with public clouds, while SD-WAN is designed to work with private clouds.
