What Are the Benefits Of SSE?

Ket Chu from Horizon Telecom explains:

Enterprises can benefit greatly by leveraging a cloud-native, globally distributed architecture with SSE (or Security Service Edge) capabilities. By combining SWG, CASB / DLP, and ZTNA into one streamlined service offering, organizations can reap the rewards of convergence without sacrificing security and performance along their journey toward Gartner’s envisioned SASE (Secure Access Security Edge). Discover how enterprise IT teams may benefit from an advanced converged SSE solution provided by the ideal network security vendor. 

Consistent Security Policy Enforcement 

SSE offers unmatched security by establishing a worldwide network that connects all endpoints to form a secure platform. Every data exchange between any two points undergoes thorough scrutiny, guaranteeing the enforcement of policies without compromise, irrespective of location or budget constraints. Furthermore, this safeguard extends beyond human-driven device interactions to encompass applications and IoT devices, providing comprehensive enterprise coverage for securing both existing and modern networks. 

Reduced Attack Surface with Zero Trust Access (ZTA) 

Through SSE, organizations can leverage the advantage of zero-trust access, ensuring that users only gain access to authorized applications. This method employs either an application overlay network featuring pre-defined connectors or identity-aware segmentation combined with rigorous deep packet security inspection to establish verified trust. In both scenarios, threats are identified, and data undergoes continuous monitoring to detect anomalies such as malicious attacks and potential data loss. 

Elastic, High-Performance Security Inspection   

SSE offers a comprehensive solution for establishing secure and efficient connectivity across various cloud environments. Its network of Points of Presence (PoPs) utilizes low-overhead physical infrastructure or public cloud nodes, enabling rapid scaling without compromising user experience or data security. With points of presence strategically located within 25ms of every business location, SSE ensures optimal local and global routing, providing scalability that can be adjusted based on consumer requirements. 

Improved Security Posture 

SSE providers are expert professionals in security and cloud services, offering invaluable support to organizations. Their Security Operations Centers (SOCs) diligently monitor the cyber threat landscape, promptly identifying vulnerabilities or potential threats and deploying effective mitigations. This service not only alleviates the pressure on internal IT staff but also delivers expert-level protection, reducing risks associated with both known and emerging threats while minimizing attack surfaces consistently. 

SSE Reduces IT Workload without Customer Involvement 

SSE providers facilitate a fully managed cloud service with automated features to ensure continuous operation and timely updates. This results in a reduced total cost of ownership, enabling IT resources to focus on more value-generating activities rather than routine maintenance tasks. To enhance uptime, users can smoothly transition between Points of Presence (PoPs) in case of connectivity issues, thanks to the high availability designed into the system.
