A new type of network for a new era
More than ever, the landscape driving digital transformation is increasingly complex. The acceleration of cloud-based application adoption and the rising risk of cybercrime create new challenges for enterprise IT teams who need to ensure easy access and absolute security for an often dispersed, remote workforce.
Through its five components—which include SD-WAN—SASE dynamically extends the edge of the private network right up to multiple cloud service providers and to popular SaaS applications. For end users, this provides a virtual on-ramp to those cloud providers’ services.
The computing and communications devices in the hands of those end users are also protected end-to-end by a full set of network security technologies. The policies for those technologies can be managed and orchestrated by the organization from the cloud using an intuitive self-service portal, reducing complexity and simplifying management.
In short, SASE offers a unified, secure connectivity solution that is available anytime and anywhere.
Fully converged SASE. Single pane of glass. Just one.
Together with Cato Networks, Windstream Enterprise is the first and only North American managed service provider to converge cloud-native network and security into a fully integrated SASE solution. This comprehensive architecture enables businesses to adapt to constantly shifting users, applications and work environments while keeping all application and security policies synchronized with these changing endpoints—all from a single pane of glass.
