Remote work accelerated in 2020 and with it, SASE adoption.
Gartner gave a name to an architecture that’s been in motion for years, heightened by a sudden shift to remote work. While the principles of SASE were in place well before 2020, the pandemic brought SASE to the forefront as remote access to applications and ‘work from anywhere’ became a top organizational priority.
SASE marks a shift from the data center as the center of the universe to a more cloud-centric model. Organizations now need the ability to pivot on a dime to enable secure connectivity for in-office, work from home, or anywhere in between.
Simply put, SASE is another way to describe your journey to the cloud.
