What's in a SASE Solution?

As organizations adopt remote workforce policies, networks grow more distributed and employees increasingly leverage cloud-based applications to do their job, the traditional hub and spoke infrastructure model begins to break down. Maintaining an enterprise infrastructure strategy where the data center is at the center of all communication access no longer scales.

A new networking and security strategy is required that combines network and security functions with WAN capabilities to support the dynamic, secure access needs of today’s cloud edge. That strategy is Secure Access Service Edge, or SASE.

SASE helps bring security to every edge, solving much of the scalability and infrastructure issues that arise in large, distributed organizations highly dependent on IaaS/SaaS. With this said, not all purported SASE solutions are equally effective, and many of them aren't even SASE.

Fortinet provides both a rich SD-WAN offering and a purpose-built cloud architecture together. Fortinet SASE cloud architecture is multi-tenant, elastic and highly scalable, leveraging Fortinet’s top 8% of most interconnected architecture in the world.

Fortinet SASE

Fortinet offers the most comprehensive and flexible SASE solution available today.

Fortinet delivers a complete SASE solution that seamlessly integrates with SD-WAN and leverages Fortinet Network Firewall and Secure Web Gateway (SWG) to provide enterprise organizations with unapparelled multi-layer security. In addition, unlike many SASE vendors who rely on public cloud providers instead of investing in their own global network, our solution is delivered on its own highly elastic multi-tenant cloud architecture. Together, these unique aspects allow Fortinet to deliver the complete promise of SASE with the flexibility they demand.

At Fortinet, we believe SASE is all about enabling organizations to apply the right security at every stage in their digital transformation. Leveraging over 20 years of innovation, Fortinet is able to provide truly dynamic security and networking solutions delivered as a service. Depending on infrastructure and organizational need, bringing security and networking as a service via our own purpose-built cloud is just another transformative way that Fortinet is keeping businesses secure and optimized.
