Two seismic shifts have occurred in network operations. First, there is the move to cloud-centric applications (e.g. SalesForce, Workday, Office365, etc.). Second is the mass shift to remote work. Either of these alone would be a large undertaking for an IT organization. But when tackled jointly, they strain resources to a breaking point and introduce a wave of challenges.Ensuring that security envelopes the network, all while maintaining reliable, high speed connectivity to cloud-based services, requires a network architecture that is flexible, dynamic and designed holistically to support a digital enterprise.Enter the Software Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) and Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), a promising tandem approach for overcoming these new network challenges. But where do you begin? Start by checking out our latest eBook, “SD-WAN’s New SASE (“Sassy”) Friend,” in which we explore how these two frameworks can operate together to deliver true digital transformation. In it, we discuss a variety of topics, including:• Security and the issue of exploding endpoints• The “Zero Trust Model” approach to network access• Identity-based control and context driven by SaaS applications• The need for connectivity to everything, everywhere• And more…After reading this eBook, you’ll be better prepared to talk with your internal IT and Security teams, as well as to any service providers, about all the reasons to consider pairing SASE with SD-WAN. When you do, your enterprise can create an agile, high-performing, highly secure network to support your ever-changing workplace.
