Secure Access Service Edge

What is SASE?

(pronounced “Sassy”)


Imagine being able to have complete and continuous visibility and control over:

  • who is on your network

  • what is on their network, and

  • what data is flowing in and out

at any time

Gartner's Definition:

Secure access service edge (SASE) delivers converged network and security as a service capabilities, including SD-WAN, SWG, CASB, NGFW and zero trust network access (ZTNA). SASE supports branch office, remote worker and on-premises secure access use cases. SASE is primarily delivered as a service and enables zero trust access based on the identity of the device or entity, combined with real-time context and security and compliance policies (Source)

History of SASE:

The term SASE was coined by Gartner analysts Neil McDonald and Joe Skorupa and described in a July 29, 2019 networking hype cycle and market trends report, and an August 30, 2019 Gartner report.

In 2021, Gartner defined a subset of SASE capabilities, called Secure services edge (SSE). SSE is a collection of SASE security services that can be implemented together with network services, like SD-WAN, to provide a complete solution.


Because it the future of Network Security.

But don't just trust us. Gartner said so. Here's a free one hour webinar where Gartner proves this point: Evolve to The Future of Network Security Using the Secure Access Service Edge

And Forbes agree with them: Four Reasons Why SASE Is The Future Of Network Security

The primary components of a SASE Architecture include:


  • Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN): SASE leverages the capabilities of SD-WAN to provide optimized network routing between SASE points of presence (PoPs).

  • Firewall as a Service (FWaaS): A firewall is the foundation of any network security stack. SASE includes FWaaS to provide strong protection with minimal overhead and management.

  • Zero-Trust Network Access (ZTNA): ZTNA (also called SDP) offers an alternative to legacy secure remote access solutions that embraces zero-trust policies and provides access to resources on a case-by-case basis.

  • Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB): A cloud-based security solution like SASE logically needs to provide security for cloud applications. CASB is integrated into SASE to monitor and secure access to cloud-based resources.

  • Data Loss Prevention (DLP): SASE leverages DLP to help protect against data loss and potential breaches by controlling the movement of data in and out of cloud applications.

  • Secure Web Gateway (SWG): SWG solutions protect users against malware, phishing, and other Internet-borne threats. SASE offers SWG protection to all users, regardless of their location.

  • Consolidated Management: Complex and disconnected security is one of the main challenges that SASE is designed to solve. SASE users should be able to monitor and manage all of their security solutions from a single pane of glass.


Achieving true convergence across all of these components is essential for an organization to fully achieve the benefits of SASE.

The Future for SASE:

​According to Gartner:

"By 2025, 80% of enterprise will have adopted a strategy to unify web, cloud services and private application access from a single vendor's security service convergence platform."
"By 2025, at least 60% of enterprises will have explicit strategies and timelines for SASE adoption encompassing user, branch and edge access, up from 10% in 2020."

The Best of SASE

Cato Networks is the world’s first and only cloud-native SASE platform:

  • Built from the ground up

  • Converging all the above SASE components in a single service and interface

  • With its own private backbone

  • That is up and running in minutes to provide immediate ROI

No other SASE provider can make this claim! That is why we parterned with Cato Networks to provide this solution to our clients in self-managed or managed service models.


With Cato SASE, you converge the functions of network and security point solutions into a unified cloud-native service delivered through a global network of local Point of Presence (PoPs) locations. Enterprises can now finally replace their patchwork of networking and security tools with one global network for leaner operations, lightening-fast agility, always current security, and unsurpassed visibility.
