Diving into Secure Access Service Edge: A technical leadership guide to achieving success with SASE at market speed
Implement Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) for secure network and application communications, exploring SASE services including SD-WAN, ZTF, and more with expert Jeremiah Ginn who helps CxO leaders achieve SASE success
- Merge networking and security services into a single architecture to simplify network infrastructure
- Explore how zero trust network access (ZTNA) restricts access to provide native application segmentation
- Focus on a native, multitenant cloud architecture that scales dynamically with demand
The SASE concept was coined by Gartner after seeing a pattern emerge in cloud and SD-WAN projects where full security integration was needed. The market behavior lately has sparked something like a “space race” for all technology manufacturers and cloud service providers to offer a “SASE” solution. The current training available in the market is minimal and manufacturer-oriented, with new services being released every few weeks. Professional architects and engineers trying to implement SASE need to take a manufacturer-neutral approach.
This guide provides a foundation for understanding SASE, but it also has a lasting impact because it not only addresses the problems that existed at the time of publication, but also provides a continual learning approach to successfully lead in a market that evolves every few weeks. Technology teams need a tool that provides a model to keep up with new information as it becomes available and stay ahead of market hype.
With this book, you’ll learn about crucial models for SASE success in designing, building, deploying, and supporting operations to ensure the most positive user experience (UX). In addition to SASE, you’ll gain insight into SD-WAN design, DevOps, zero trust, and next-generation technical education methods.
What you will learn
- Develop a comprehensive understanding of SASE from a market and technical perspective
- Understand SASE services and components included in SASE solutions
- Move logically from prescriptive design to policy-based design and orchestration
- Understand standard SASE use cases and how to integrate future components
- Convert from a legacy network design model to a secure DevOps model for future projects
- Use a functional design overlay to eliminate inter-service competition for the control plane of the SASE service
Who this book is for
This book is for technology and security leaders and specifically for any CTO, CSO, CISO, or CIO looking for an executive approach to SASE for their organization. Anyone implementing SD-WAN, SASE, and SASE services for cloud, network, and security infrastructure will also find this book helpful.
