In 2021, Gartner introduced a new market category, Security Service Edge (SSE), to describe the convergence of certain network security functions in the cloud. SSE converges Secure Web Gateway (SWG), Cloud access security broker (CASB), data loss prevention (DLP), and zero trust network access (ZTNA), into a single cloud service.
SSE is a first step in achieving security-driven transformation, by converging secure, consistent access to all applications for all users. But what are the actual benefits of SSE and what is driving its adoption?
Yishay Yovel, Cato Network’s CMO, covers everything there is to know about SSE, including why it’s different from SASE and how to get your IT infrastructure prepared for what’s coming next.
