What is SASE? Secure Access Service Edge

Secure Access Service Edge is a cloud-based service for streamlining network access, improving security, boosting network performance, and reducing the number of vendors into a single service provider. SASE was coined by the global research and advisory firm Gartner.

SASE networks are flexible and scalable, able to connect globally distributed employees and offices across any location and via any device in an attempt to meet the challenges of digital business transformation, edge computing, and workforce mobility.

Core Security Components of SASE

Utilities companies have been undergoing a significant transformation, driven by the power of cloud technology. The utilities cloud presents a game-changing opportunity to streamline operations, improve efficiency, and enhance overall service quality. As utility companies embark on this digital journey, the application modernization for utility companies becomes an imperative, aligning seamlessly with utilities technology trends and utility consulting practices. One company at the forefront of this innovation is Payoda, offering custom cloud solutions tailored to utility companies’ unique needs.

The core of modern leak survey management is a multi-tenant, cloud-hosted solution that integrates various components to deliver a comprehensive approach. This solution acts as a central hub, connecting leak detection devices, mobile apps suite, desktop apps, web apps, and APIs, orchestrating a symphony of technologies that work in harmony to achieve a common goal — ensuring gas network safety.

1. Secure Web Gateways (SWG)

SWG prevents cyber threats and data breaches by filtering unwanted content from web traffic, blocking unauthorized user behavior, and enforcing company security policies. SWG’s are also ideal for providing security for remote workforces based on their ability to be deployed in a distributed environment.

2. Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB)

A CASB performs several security functions for cloud-hosted services including revealing shadow IT (unauthorized corporate systems) and securing confidential data through access control ensuring compliance with data privacy regulations.

3. Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA)

ZTNA platforms help defend against potential data breaches by locking down all internal resources, applications, and devices from public view by requiring real-time verification of every user.

4. Firewall-as-a-Service (FWaaS)

FWaaS refers to firewalls delivered from the cloud as a service that protects cloud-based platforms, infrastructure, and applications from cyber-attacks. FWaaS is a set of security capabilities that includes URL filtering, intrusion prevention, and uniform policy management across all network traffic.

SASE and Payoda

While SASE has received a lot of attention from networking and security vendors and the media, we feel the primary theory underlying it — the idea that data center security and network architectures have become ineffective -is what makes it most interesting. Payoda keeps its word by lowering risk profiles and optimizing hybrid enterprise networks to support and secure users wherever they are, with consistent security at all network edges.
