How to obtain SASE certification?

Why obtain SASE certification?
Being SASE certified has to be earned, but it is worth the effort. Realizing that the current network architecture simply does not meet the needs of the modern enterprise, Gartner introduced SASE in 2019, predicting that “ by 2024, at least 40% of enterprises will have explicit strategies to adopt SASE, up from less than 1% at year-end 2018 by 2024, at least 40% of companies will have clear strategies for adopting SASE compared to less than 1% at the end of 2018. ” In addition, although SASE is relatively new, COVID-19 has accelerated its adoption due to the imperative of business continuity strategies adapted to the boom in remote access. In fact, according to Gartner, since June 2020, more than 40% of global teleworkers use SASE . “
Given Gartner’s market estimates, a SASE certification is useful, but will become essential to prove connectivity and security skills relevant and appropriate to the direction of the industry.
