Advanced SASE: It CAN Be Done Today

Sep 27 2023

The Gartner® secure access service edge (SASE) framework has generated tremendous interest in the market, spanning from small businesses to large institutions, and appealing to security and networking professionals alike. Netskope is excited to announce the availability of the first secure access service edge (SASE) solution to fully address key advanced use cases demanded by large enterprises. Netskope, which is positioned highest in execution and furthest in vision as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant™ for SSE*, combines our Intelligent SSE with our award-winning Borderless SD-WAN to deliver this solution. But given that there are already a number of SASE solutions on the market today, why is this announcement important? 

While there is a broad spectrum of SASE offerings on the market, these are generally divided among “single-vendor” SASE solutions that claim to consolidate a range of security and networking capabilities on a single platform, and “dual-vendor” SASE solutions that bring together converged security service edge (SSE) capabilities from one vendor together with WAN Edge capabilities from another. 

In their ‘Market Guide for Single-Vendor SASE’,** Gartner has generally seen demand for single-vendor SASE solutions coming from “smaller enterprises that don’t have strongly siloed network and security teams and don’t require best of breed across all capabilities.” In their ‘Critical Capabilities™ for Single-Vendor SASE’, they acknowledged that “the level of advanced security features across all [single-vendor SASE] offerings is only mediocre for most enterprises.”*** So, what should large organizations not willing to compromise on state-of-the-art capabilities do?  

Until now, the prescribed course has been for enterprises to adopt dual-vendor SASE. While this will continue to be a viable direction for enterprises with separate security and networking decision-makers, or existing investments in SSE or SD-WAN infrastructure that they don’t want to replace, a new alternative is now available. Netskope’s single vendor SASE solution offers enterprise-grade sophistication alongside a number of converged innovations that resolve critical enterprise use cases:

  • Full platform convergence with one box, one console, and one network, as well as the industry’s first SASE client that combines complete SSE and SD-WAN functionality into a single footprint.
  • Complete VPN replacement with ZTNA Next, via the industry’s only integration of zero trust network access (ZTNA) with endpoint or appliance-based SD-WAN technology, enables organizations to roll out least-privileged access to private applications while maintaining access to legacy VoIP or remote assistance applications that have proven difficult to support with conventional ZTNA solutions.
  • Zero trust convergence across security and networking, with Netskope’s unique Zero Trust Engine providing extensive risk context across users, devices, applications and data to enable continuous adaptive trust to be applied across the security stack and context-aware optimization across SD-WAN connections.
  • Full visibility and control of the user experience with unparalleled visibility of the end-to-end user experience – including within the security cloud because Netskope NewEdge, our unique purpose-built private cloud infrastructure – and the ability to remediate issues along every step from the user to the application, thanks to the SD-WAN optimization capabilities in its Proactive Digital Experience Management solution and the self-healing properties of NewEdge.

The original SASE framework appealed to so many IT leaders because it represented an end to the eternal compromise between security, agility, and complexity. And yet, the rest of the SASE market still forces enterprise leaders into the same set of compromises as before: focus on networking to deliver a fast and reliable user experience at the cost of heightened security risk; focus on your security posture at the cost of latency and onerous controls; or get a basic SASE that is converged and an easy-to-use platform, but falls short on both security and connectivity. Is that enough?

Since the start of our journey more than 10 years ago, Netskope has focused on the needs of its customers and firmly adhered to its vision of building a complete network and security platform that enables enterprises to embrace digital transformation and solve key business and technical challenges in a fast, resilient, and secure manner. Only this Netskope platform enables an “Advanced SASE” model that doesn’t compromise on security or connectivity capabilities, and delivers new converged use cases one couldn’t find in standalone SSE nor SD-WAN offerings.

To learn more about Netskope’s approach to SASE, join us for the fourth annual SASE Week (September 26 – 28) and discover how SASE can streamline your network, enhance security, and optimize costs. During SASE Week, you’ll find out how Netskope SASE solves that.
