MODERN ARCHITECTURE FOR A CLOUD AND
MOBILE-FIRST WORLD

Zscaler SASE (Secure Access Service Edge)

THE NEW REALITY

Status quo is inhibiting digital business

For decades, networks have connected users to applications in on-premises data centers, set behind perimeter firewalls and VPNs to keep apps and data safe from outside threats. Today, with apps moving to cloud services, IoT devices proliferating, and remote users connecting from everywhere, traditional enterprise network security solutions can't solve the fundamental challenge of cybersecurity anymore. Instead, they’re piling on complexity and costs.

“The secure access service edge is an emerging offering combining comprehensive WAN capabilities with comprehensive network security functions (such as SWG, CASB, FWaaS, and ZTNA) to support the dynamic secure access needs of digital enterprises.”
