Security Service Edge (SSE) Solution
Instant security. Seamless network integration.
SSE = Comprehensive security in the cloud
How SSE works
As a concept, SSE was first introduced by Gartner in 2021, Security Service Edge (SSE) is a set of integrated cloud-centric tools that allow secure access to websites, SaaS apps and private applications. SSE seamlessly incorporates next-generation security components into existing network environments, such as MPLS or Software-defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN), without disrupting business.
SASE vs. SSE
Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) combines SD-WAN with SSE security features for a more flexible and integrated IT architecture. This powerful solution reduces the complexity, inefficiencies, limited visibility and higher costs that arise when network, security and application components all operate independently.
A multidimensional security platform integrated into a single solution helps automate network and security operations for easier deployment and greater efficiency—all while providing more flexibility to scale operations up or down as needed.
Consistent policy enforcement
