    Synopsis and overview of the session

    There’s been a lot of hype around Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) since Gartner coined the term in mid 2019. While Gartner predicts that 40% of companies will adopt a SASE architecture in the next 3 years, there is no single industry standard view on what constitutes SASE and how to deploy it in practice. What is clear, however, is that the network edge is changing. Business users are working remotely and accessing business data beyond the corporate data centre, and in the cloud.

    This virtual roundtable will cut through the noise and explain how SASE can be effectively deployed in practice. It will cover an overview of SASE component technology, the business case the enterprise and a comparison of network and cloud security SASE offerings. Staying ahead of the next cyber breach and ensuring a productive IT environment requires embracing innovation.

    Focus Network, in partnership with Bitglass, will bring IT Security leaders together as they share how SASE is being implemented to deliver total cloud security, covering:

    • The major differences between Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) architectures;
    • The business benefits of moving to a SASE platform; and
    • Practical advice on implementing SASE in your organisation.
