In its 2019 Hype Cycle for Enterprise Networking report, Gartner defines SASE (secure access service edge) — pronounced “sassy” — as an emerging market that combines elements of Software-defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) and network security into a single cloud-managed package. Gartner has labeled it “transformational”. 128 Technology has been SASE (or sassy) since Birth! 128 Technology recognized that security must be fully integrated into the network. 128 Technology Session Smart™ routers have built-in security capabilities that are inherent part of the architecture. In addition, service-based routing ensures that sessions are delivered based on identity and context to relevant parties based on real-time policies. This ensures that a modern cloud-centric digital business can provide secure access to users and devices anywhere.
