Netskope is excited to announce the publication of our new book, Designing a SASE Architecture for Dummies.
You’re likely familiar with the iconic Dummies series of books as helpful introductory guides to complex topics. Because SASE architectures continue to be the hot topic throughout the industry, we brought together some of the finest minds at Netskope to co-author this book, including Jason Clark, Lamont Orange, and Steve Riley—all of whom have decades of deep expertise in security, networking, and cloud.
The increasing complexity of security landscapes continues to challenge even the best security teams, increasing the chance of errors and breaches. For that reason, Designing a SASE Architecture for Dummies is a high level overview of the right way to design a SASE architecture, created with the intention of helping readers develop a roadmap for security and networking projects and driving a practical understanding of what SASE is, and more importantly, what it isn’t. Since the term was coined by Gartner almost two years ago, SASE has been over-marketed, over-interpreted, and under-explained. That’s why we wanted to strip away all the vendor posturing and SASE quasi-philosophy and take a practical approach to help leaders future-proof their security and networking investments with SASE in mind.
Specifically some of the key areas the book covers include:
- The SASE vision for securing cloud-first enterprises
- Key benefits of a properly implemented SASE architecture, including capex and opex savings
- Busting the myths around SASE
- How CASB, NG-SWG, and Zero Trust contribute to a successful SASE architecture
- The right steps to take at the right times to start implementing SASE
