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.
Consistent policy enforcement
Enforce and synchronize security policies by connecting all locations and users on a unified security platform.
Reduced attack surface
Continuously monitor traffic for anomalies, threats, attacks and sensitive data loss.
Improved security posture
Remove the IT burden of manually mitigating emerging threats.
Zero trust access
Ensure only validated users have authorized access to apps and data in the cloud.
Analyze user behavior with applications and resources to maintain security without hindering employee productivity.

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.
