The accelerated shift to a hybrid workplace, coupled with the fast-tracked adoption of new technologies and processes, means it’s time for businesses to rethink their networking security approach. But that’s proving to be easier said than done—networking and security technologies are becoming increasingly complex, just as the stakes for securely distributed experiences have never been higher.
That’s why organizations are turning to modern-day solutions that can support a unified experience for their hybrid workers, with secure access to applications and resources that are on their corporate networks and in the cloud. A growing number of businesses are adopting Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), a framework of advanced network and security solutions, to achieve this.

There are many reasons to deploy a SASE framework to support modern enterprise environments, but here are the most common use cases that it’s best equipped to help solve:
It’s one thing to recognize the signs that indicate the need to start planning a SASE implementation. The bigger question is, how can you do it with the least amount of complexity?
Embarking on the SASE journey must be carefully considered and executed. Because SASE is a long-term project that requires in-depth planning and personalization, your organization may need to decide on what to prioritize first, whether to address gaps in your existing SD-WAN deployment or to deliver greater security to your remote workforce.
Consider the efficiency and cost reductions of replacing multiple vendors and legacy products with a single solution.
