At its core, SASE combines two essential functionalities: network connectivity, known as SD-WAN, and network security, termed Security Service Edge (SSE). SD-WAN supports the evolution of the connectivity offering, moving more and more to business-grade Internet, while SSE unifies various security technologies into a single integrated platform. This is where we see a divergence in adoption strategies.
SASE is a broad, multi-faceted architecture. It takes well-established and well-known security concepts and restructures them into a unified and cloud-centric framework. This restructuring brings new complexities ranging from infrastructure, configuration and change management.
