Today on Day Two Cloud we serve up a bowl of acronym soup: SSE, SASE, and SD-WAN. SSE (Secure Service Edge) and SASE (Secure Access Service Edge) are Gartner terms for cloud-delivered security services including firewalls, IDS/IPS, secure Web gateways, cloud access security brokers, and others. The general difference between the two is that SASE tends to incorporate SD-WAN, which provides the network access to the cloud services. With SSE, you have to bring your own connections.
On today’s show we’ll examine the similarities and differences in these offerings, the drivers for cloud-delivered security, the role of networking in delivering these services, where and how zero trust can come into play, some of the big players in these spaces, and more.
Our guest is Tom Hollingsworth, analyst at Gestalt IT.
