The market for single-vendor SASE offerings is dynamic, immature and rapidly changing. When selecting SASE offerings, infrastructure and operations leaders should use this research to help determine the alternatives that best align with their requirements.
Included in Full Research
Most vendors in this research integrate multiple products/consoles to deliver their offerings, although three vendors (Palo Alto, Cato and Versa) provide a single, unified product.
Vendor rankings across the use cases vary substantially. For example, there is a separate vendor at the top and bottom of each use case.
Across all offerings, most vendors provide strong branch networking and branch network security capabilities. However, the level of advanced security features across all offerings is only mediocre for most enterprises.
There is a wide range of variation among vendor offerings in several areas, including points of presence, unified experience and SaaS control/visibility.
