1. Convergence Trumps Added Features
The Futuriom report emphasizes that SASE reflects a broader trend of integrating tech tools with cloud systems. Point solutions complicate IT tasks, heighten security risks, and slow networks. SASE combines networking and security in a unified cloud platform, offering enhanced efficiency and effectiveness through streamlined processing, comprehensive intelligence, and simplified network management.
2. SASE: The Ultimate Convergence
SASE epitomizes convergence. Gartner’s 2022 prediction stressed its superior coverage compared to multiple integrated solutions. Converged Security Platforms outperform individual components, creating efficiencies. Achieving this convergence requires core capabilities leveraging a single-pass engine for threat prevention, data protection, and network acceleration.
“SASE prevents fragmentation of policymaking across eight different tools, ensuring a uniform security policy in every situation.”
3. Gradual Migration, not Revolution
Senior Forrester Analyst, David Holnes, advises a gradual approach to SASE implementation. Start small and expand according to your needs and pace. While SASE is significant, rushing network and security overhaul is unwise. Transformation might span months or years, tailored to the organization’s demands.
