Advanced SASE-Cloud Security
Advanced SASE combines SD-WAN capabilities with comprehensive network security services
Verizon Business today announced the launch of its new Advanced Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) solution, which combines SD-WAN capabilities with hybrid network connectivity and security services into a unified, cloud-delivered service that meets the increasingly complex digital needs of businesses.
For many organizations, the growing number of online threats (as highlighted in Verizon’s 2021 Data Breach Investigations Report), changes in application traffic between the cloud and the edge, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic have created an unprecedented mix of performance and security challenges. Now more than ever, organizations are looking for scalable, flexible solutions that can adapt to business needs while optimizing performance and security.
“Advanced SASE makes it easier for organizations to focus on their business growth and operations while we manage their networks and security,” says Verizon Business CEO Tami Erwin. “By merging SD-WAN capabilities with network security services, we have created a solution that leverages our expertise to help customers connect people, data, and endpoints securely and efficiently – from anywhere with any app or service.”
While many organizations would agree that digital transformation remains a top priority, the reality for most enterprise technology teams is that managing and securing an increasingly complex IT environment presents significant challenges.
At its core, Advanced SASE is an adaptive end-to-end offering delivered as a single-provider managed solution that leverages Verizon Business ‘ managed services expertise to help the customer’s IT team manage individual components. In addition, customers will be able to leverage accumulated insights that optimize the full potential of the solution.
Verizon Business will continue to expand its offering of Advanced SASE partners, bringing together proven products from recognized network and security industry leaders whose technology and services integrate seamlessly with their own.
