Decide when and how to move your business to SASE 

The newly distributed and mobile workforce and the move to cloud and SaaS applications has had real and profound effects on business. The volume and nature of network traffic is changing. More data in more locations is significantly increasing potential attack surfaces. Security is moving out of the premises and into the cloud. Enterprises are rethinking their existing network and security architectures as they look toward a comprehensive overhaul and digital transformation.

This paper frames the current challenges and trends impacting cloud networking and security. It defines the problems that SASE is designed to address while looking at its benefits, architecture, components, and technical implementation. It will help you understand: 

• The market trends forcing SASE evolution

• How adoption challenges should be evaluated and addressed

• Why should a business consider making the move to SASE, and why now?

This white paper is part of a series adapted and updated from the book Journey into the World of SASE, by VMware technical product managers Rohan Naggi and Ferdinand Sales (VMware Press, April 2021). We’ve broken the book into shorter, easier-to-consume papers. Whether you read individual papers or the whole book, the goal is to help you understand your company’s journey to SASE: why SASE is important, how it works, and what you need to know to implement it successfully.
