How to Get SASE Certified?
To achieve Cato’s certification, you need to apply to the Cato SASE course and pass the certification exam with a minimum score of 85%. We assume you have some knowledge of cloud, networking and security. You don’t need any previous knowledge of SASE to obtain the certification.
Why Get SASE Certified?
Becoming SASE Certified may not be as easy as ABC, but it’s definitely worthwhile. With the realization that the current network architecture is simply inadequate to support the needs of the modern business, 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.” And although SASE is relatively new, COVID-19 has further expedited its adoption due to the compelling need for business continuity strategies that address the explosion of remote access. In fact, according to Gartner, since June 2020 “SASE has been adopted by more than 40% of global remote workers.”
In light of Gartner’s market estimations, a SASE certification is nice-to-have; but mostly it’s becoming a must-have, for demonstrating networking and security skills that are relevant and aligned with the industry’s direction.
