SASE

The Future of Network & Security

You Need to Know About

Going way Beyond Just SD-WAN.

What is SASE?

Secure access service edge, or SASE (pronounced “sassy”), is an emerging cybersecurity concept that Gartner described in the August 2019 report, ”The Future of Network Security”.

SASE is the convergence of WAN (wide area networking) and Network Security Services into a single, cloud-delivered service model.  

Instead of managing network and security separately, SASE simplifies and unifies these efforts while solving the scaling, security, flexibility, performance and cost containment challenges networks and enterprises will face while attempting manage the explosion of data, computing, people, groups (branch offices), applications, services, IoT systems and edge computing entities accessing their digital assets from any device on any network, public and private.

The Problem

Traditional point-to-point networking and security architectures are cumbersome, complex and costly to own and operate.

Standard networking and security solutions struggle to fully support today’s cloud-centric and mobile-first digital enterprises. These networks are static and inflexible, with security often siloed across multiple domains. Traditional solutions do not scale and slow down the business instead of enabling innovation and agility.

The Solution

Unified networking and security under a cloud-native framework enables simplicity, agility, and lower costs.

A SASE platform delivered over a distributed cloud framework provides security features for all endpoints, users, and edges. Dispersive’s SASE solution enables enterprises to manage network and security policies through a single console, making it easier and more efficient for IT teams and managed service providers to orchestrate, manage, and troubleshoot.

The Benefits of SASE

Traditional enterprise architectures constrain digital innovation and transformation. With SASE, enterprises can effortlessly connect and manage physical locations, cloud resources, digital assets, and mobile via a SASE framework.  Network and IT teams enjoy the agility of a unified network and security service managed through a single, self-service console.

Zero Trust: Complete session protection while removing trust assumptions in cloud deployments even when the user or device is connecting from off the network.

Increased Performance: SASE cloud architectures make any app, resource or other digital services is available to users easily, globally.

Reduced Complexity: A cloud-based network security stack service model reducing the number of security products an IT team must manage, update and maintain.

Greater Flexibility: holistic delivery of security services such as DNS security, next-gen firewall policies, and credential theft, data loss and threat prevention.

Greater Scalability: SASE enable enterprises to easily deploy, integrate, and manage new endpoints, apps, and services in an efficient and secure framework.

Data Protection:  SASE data protection policies prevent unauthorized access and misuse of proprietary data.

Reduced Cost:  SASE converts need to buy and manage multiple point products into a single platform dramatically reducing costs and IT resources.

Enables Faster Innovation: SASE frameworks streamline new product development cycles, making companies more responsive and reactive to market needs, business opportunities and the competition.

Dispersive’s SASE solution improves security and performance while lowering total cost of ownership.

Our Secret Sauce:

  • Built-in performance acceleration
  • Self-healing under attack or QoS issue
  • Zero-trust network access
  • Mobile, IoT and branch edge enabled
  • End point and control plane obfuscation
  • Edge aggregates available bandwidth
  • Multiple encrypted paths and segments
  • Multi-network & multi-cloud
  • 100% software-based overlay network
  • Red Team tested by the best in the world

Which Means:

  • Flexible and scalable architecture for distributed edge deployments
  • Intelligent adaptable network resistant to DDOS and Man in the Middle Attacks
  • Up to 10x performance improvement over SD-WAN/VPN based solutions

How:

  • Data streams are split at the source and sent via multiple encrypted paths to Deflects using existing IP networks.
  • New paths are established real-time for quality of service and security.
  • Data deflects forward packets to the final destination.
  • The authenticated destination reassembles the split packet.
  • Missing packets are re-requested for guaranteed packet delivery.
