The Secure Access Service Edge (or SASE)  has been a very hot buzzword in the past year. A term and category created by Gartner 2019, SASE states that the future of networking and security lies in the convergence of these categories into a single, cloud-based platform. The capabilities that SASE delivers aren't new and include  SD-WAN , threat prevention, remote access, and others that were available from multiple vendors over the years.  So, what is, in fact, new about SASE?

Cato Networks shared its increase in remote access usage post coronavirus outbreak. The trend is clear. Remote access has become an essential pillar for ensuring business continuity; nevertheless, the requirements to enable this, especially at a time of crisis, can be overwhelming.
