SASE and ZTNA

Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) is a cloud-delivered service that combines network and security functions with WAN capabilities to support the dynamic, secure access needs of today’s hybrid organizations. Conceptually, SASE extends networking and security capabilities beyond where they are typically available. This lets users, regardless of location, take advantage of the firewall as a service (FWaaS), secure web gateway (SWG), zero-trust network access (ZTNA), and a host of threat detection functions.

Enterprise networks are increasingly reliant on cloud-based applications to run their businesses and support distributed workflows to support remote and mobile users. This has resulted in the conventional enterprise network rapidly growing beyond the conventional network edge, challenging infrastructure leaders to secure and manage an ever-expanding attack surface. While Software-Defined networks (SDN) have advanced rapidly enough to support the workflows of these remote endpoints, most security tools have not kept pace, rendering VPN-only solutions obsolete. For organizations to remain competitive, all endpoints must be secured and managed with the same security and networking policies as their on-premises infrastructure, regardless of where they’re located.

Microland SmartBranch SASE provides 24x7 monitoring of a customer’s Network, Security and Cloud estate against malicious events, enterprise-wide user traffic analysis, proactive management, and response to <alert>s including initial containment and incident response to mitigate threats. For our solution, we are leveraging the Zscaler platform integrated with a NextGen SIEM to monitor the business-critical applications and sensitive data on the cloud.

When properly implemented, a SASE approach allows organizations to apply secure access no matter where their users, workloads, devices, or applications are located. This becomes imperative as more users join the remote workforce, SaaS applications see rapid adoption, and data is moved rapidly across data centers, branch offices, and hybrid- and multi-cloud environments.
