Gartner’s Recognition Follows June 2020 Report Highlighting Safe-T as Representative Vendor of Stand-Alone Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA).
Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) is a new enterprise networking technology category introduced by Gartner in the August 2019 report “The Future of Network Security in the Cloud“. SASE converges the functions of network and security point solutions into a unified, global cloud-native service. It is an architectural transformation of enterprise networking and security that enables information technology (IT) to provide a holistic, agile and adaptable service to the digital business. What makes SASE unique is its transformational impact across multiple IT domains converging of wide area networking (WAN) and network security services into a single, cloud-delivered service model, allowing organizations to shift towards a more dynamic and adaptive network.
According to Gartner, “SASE is as an emerging architecture combining comprehensive WAN capabilities with comprehensive network security functions (such as SWG, CASB, FWaaS and ZTNA) to support the dynamic secure access needs of digital enterprises. ZTNA is a capability that — irrespective of whether it operates as an endpoint or service-initiated model, or whether it is deployed as a stand-alone appliance or is consumed as a service — is always ingress SASE. It provides strictly controlled access to internal systems and applications.”
