Achieve a Zero Trust security model in weeks
The expansion of the cloud economy has left a wake of fragmented networks, security protocols, and applications. Old school hub-and-spoke network architectures aren't equipped to keep today's decentralized users connected and secure.
To meet the challenges that come with a remote workforce, Gartner introduced the Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) framework. SASE is a holistic cloud architecture model that bundles network and security-as-a-service capabilities together, and delivers them into a single cloud-based service.
Also known as "zero trust," the SASE framework was designed to bring security controls to the edge, as close to the user as possible. Zero trust is synonymous with microsegmentation, a security best practice that adopts an overall position to “never trust, always verify.” This is a radically different perspective than traditional network segmentation.
SASE vs SSE
First came SASE, then came Security Service Edge (SSE). After SASE was introduced by Gartner, the challenge of implementing a converged framework (network + security-as-a-service) stalled its adoption. It was taking far too long for businesses to achieve.
So Gartner recommended prioritizing the security capabilities within SASE over network connectivity and architecture. SSE left the SASE framework as its own separate segment (by removing SD-WAN).
The thing is...
WhiteDog can deploy a SASE model in weeks versus years—eliminating the need for a staggered approach to zero trust.
Secure Access Service Edge (SASE)
WhiteDog’s white label SASE solutions combine WAN services (ZT-WAN) and network security services (ie. CASB, firewalls, SWGs, and zero trust network access) into a single, cloud-based service model.
And our SASE model is evergreen. You'll be able to help your clients simplify WAN deployment, improve efficiency and ensure secure access to network resources for their distributed network of end users.
WhiteDog's comprehensive SASE includes:
- Network Detection and Response (NDR)
- Distributed DNS Defense (D3)
- Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA)
Today’s dynamic environment is pushing network and security teams harder to secure the distributed and hybrid workforce. It's essential to deliver 24/7 secure access to business-critical applications across a multi-cloud environment.
While the internet has become the preferred method of connectivity due to cost and availability, it lacks the security, consistency, visibility, or quality of traditional technologies such as Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) links. IT needs to rearchitect its WAN edge to deliver consistent and predictable digital experiences in a multi-cloud world.
