The Future of Network Security Is in the Cloud: Introducing the Secure Access Service Edge
Neil MacDonald, Distinguished VP Analyst, Gartner
Digital business is turning organizations inside out. More users, data, systems and applications will be outside of the enterprise than inside. This drives a need for cloud-based delivery of networking (notably SD-WAN) and security capabilities (notably SWG) to get closer to the users that need access to the internet and their data, systems and applications that are pretty much everywhere but a central office. Here, we introduce the secure access service edge where SD-WAN, FWaaS, SWG, CASB, WAF, DNS protection and ZTNA converge over the next several years creating significant disruption in the vendor landscape and opportunities for every organization.
