What the Heck is SASE and Why is it Important for Digital Transformation in the Philippines (1)

What the heck is SASE and why is it even important for your Digital Transformation?

As part of our continuous efforts to make digital transformation more accessible to more humans in the Philippines, we make sure we cover DX from as many angles as we can. From designing and developing Websites, Ecommerce, LMS, ERP, and so on, we aim to help our customers do end-to-end DX and for sure, security and performance in the cloud come with it.

So you’ve heard about ‘SASE’. You know it means Secure Access Service Edge, but do you know what it is? And why are more and more businesses undergoing digital transformation using SASE? In this post, we’ll explore these questions and more.

SASE: Secure Access Service Edge.

SASE stands for Secure Access Service Edge. SASE is a cloud security solution that’s a combination of physical and virtual security technologies, including encryption, authentication, and token management. The result is a highly secure environment where users have complete control over their data at all times.

SASE helps organizations meet regulatory compliance requirements such as HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) or PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard). It also provides enhanced protection against cyber attacks by protecting sensitive data in real-time; this means that your organization won’t be vulnerable if you lose control of your information due to any incident on its network or servers!

What is SASE used for?

SASE is a secure access service for cloud-based applications and data. SASE uses the same techniques of encryption, authentication, and digital signatures that are used in banking and finance. It creates a single-sign-on experience for users who want to access their data from any device or application.

Key benefits of SASE.

SASE is a cloud security solution that protects your data by encrypting it at the edge. It provides a secure connection between the cloud and your organization’s on-premises infrastructure, protecting sensitive data from being accessed by unauthorized users before it even leaves your premises. SASE protects your data from the moment it leaves your premises until it reaches the cloud, ensuring that third parties don’t have access to sensitive information stored in public clouds or other shared environments.

Why do Filipino companies need to understand SASE?

If you’re not already familiar with the concept of SASE, it’s time to get up to speed. SASE is a critical part of cloud security architecture. It’s also a key part of the hybrid cloud security architecture and its associated management tools like API Gateway and Secure Access Service Edge (SASE). It plays an important role in cloud performance monitoring as well. And finally, SASE has become increasingly important in transforming legacy IT into modernized business processes that require access from multiple devices without fear of compromise or exposure.

How do you implement SASE?

SASE is a secure access service edge, which means it’s an extra layer of security that you can add to your cloud computing environment. It’s important to note that SASE is not part of any software or operating system—it’s an independent security feature that must be implemented by the provider of your service. 

Luckily, Cloudflare recently released their new Cloudflare One services, which allows an easy way to implement security measures on their content delivery network (CDN), which means that websites can be securely hosted at the edge locations around the world instead of having them reach out directly to customers from a global network.

Hooman Thoughts

SASE is a new way to secure cloud access without compromising the performance of the cloud. It’s also a great way to protect your data, whether you’re using SaaS or IaaS platforms.
