Gartner describes SASE as one that consistently delivers the required security services and policy enforcements on demand, independent of the location of the entity requesting the service and the access to the capability. The adoption of SASE offers industrial enterprises the ability to securely exchange data from dispersed IIoT devices with any cloud service over any last-mile access via the untrusted public Internet.
SASE enables centralized cloud security services to be extended over distributed, local enforcement points that are logically close to the entity, including local decision making where needed. All of the services are delivered over a zero-trust network access based on the ‘never trust always verify’ principle. The result is improved performance and latency of edge compute workloads with low operational overhead and reduction in deployment complexity as well as upfront/recurring costs.
Yes. ENF is essentially a SASE offering tuned for edge computing.
