What is SASE?

Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) is an emerging cloud-security framework that Gartner introduced in 2019. As Internet of Thing (IoT) has become the trend, users are able to access application, data and service anywhere, in any time. Hence data moves from data centers to be the cloud service. Existing networking and security are transformed to a new dynamic perimeter, a policy-based network secure-access service, it causes enterprise must consider security and risk management and SASE is to address this shift. According to Gartner, "Comprehensive SASE offerings are at emerging stage only, with adoption rates less than 1%."
