SASE is the security trend of the decade
Security Access Service Edge (SASE) is the latest security trend to hit the world of cybersecurity for enterprises. But unlike meaningless buzzwords, SASE looks set to become an essential toolkit for any cybersecurity framework.
SASE moves away from data center-orientated security. Instead, it unifies your network and security tools into a single service delivered via the cloud and provides edge-to-edge protection for remote users and data centers.
Recently, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) released chapter 2 of their Cyber Essentials Toolkit. CISA’s Cyber Essentials is a guide for businesses and government agencies. It educates them on critical fundamental foundations needed for a robust cybersecurity framework, such as how to implement organizational cybersecurity practices and essential tools required.
They specifically mention that for an organization to reduce its risk from online threats, they need to embrace a holistic approach.
The main drawback of this policy is that it relies on multiple point solutions; typically, point solutions only fix one specific problem. The result is a technology stack that grows and grows as more threats and situations arise, and more point solutions are added.
