SASE suits IoT

By Max Burkhalter
June 7, 2022

Secure access service edge (SASE) was originally developed to service an increasingly remote-capable workforce. By providing security for enterprise IT infrastructure, SASE has quickly become the most efficient way to securely manage the breadth of today's internet of things (IoT) connected devices.

This article will examine the benefits of implementing cloud-based and centralized systems for mobile asset management.

Safe in the cloud

Combining cloud-based policy management with local measures that authenticate user access, SASE offers today's devices unprecedented security from an ever-increasing number of threat actors. IoT connectivity has dramatically increased the breadth of network access around the world, potentially exposing a user's devices to an array of cybersecurity risks.

SASE technology promotes a zero-trust authentication protocol, defined by Datalink networks as architecture that identifies users and devices requesting access, before implementing a policy-based security and compliance protocol. Once the authentication and authorization process is successfully completed, secure access is granted to the user. The zero-trust method is popular as it requires the same protocols each and every time a user attempts to access a network.

Utilizing the cloud provides simplicity for device users as both network and security services can be provided by a single vendor, allowing a comprehensive solution for security and communications among managed devices.

Companies prefer SASE solutions

The decentralization of IT infrastructure has given rise to cloud-based applications. Today's data is distributed across an increasingly complex number of networks, and these serverless solutions are easy and cost-effective for organizations to implement, manage and monitor. According to a report published by SC Media, traditional security measures like firewalls and secure web gateways (SWGs) still provide value to IT departments, but no longer require traffic inspection and self-contained security services.

By freeing data from cumbersome hurdles, user performance is accelerated and latency is increased. Combined with the bandwidth consumption freed by removing antiquated decryption and encryption protocols, today's businesses are able to provide safe, secure access to their workforce. Regardless of whether today's remote workers prefer to use authorized resources or bring-your-own-device (BYOD) assets to access company infrastructure, businesses can rest assured that their data is protected.

Big business

Market Research Future reports that the SASE market is expected to register a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 28.3% in the forecast period of 2022-2027.  Major factors driving the healthy increase include the growing need to unlock widespread zero-trust adoption, increasing mandates to follow regulatory and data protection and the increased need for a unified security architecture for network infrastructure.
