Hybrid IT environments — multiple clouds, edge, on-premises infrastructure, a distributed workforce — are putting the old approach to network security to the extreme test. The traditional centralized approach via MPLS and VPNs is becoming not only expensive, but also challenging to secure against ever-evolving cyber threats.
These factors are driving strong enterprise interest in Secure Access Secure Edge (SASE). Clear benefits are recognized by 98% of organizations, according to the 2021 CISO Survival Guide from Cisco Investments. What’s more, 55% are targeting 25% to 75% of their security budgets for SASE.
