Secure Access Service Edge (SASE)

Cisco is driving the revolution of secure access everywhere.


Learn how to deliver complete networking and security for multicloud.

What is SASE?

Secure access service edge (SASE) is a network architecture that combines VPN and WAN capabilities with cloud-native security functions like secure web gateways, cloud access security brokers, firewalls, and zero-trust network access. These functions are delivered from the cloud and provided as a service by the SASE vendor. SASE is a vision for a future secure networking model that enterprises should strive for--it is not currently a reality from any vendor.

Today, SASE is best represented by the convergence of cloud-managed SD-WAN and cloud-delivered security. Digital business transformation is moving security to the cloud, which drives a need for converged services to reduce complexity, improve speed and agility, and secure the new network architecture. The SASE model consolidates numerous networking and security functions--which were traditionally delivered in siloed point solutions--in a single, integrated cloud service.
