Overview of Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) technology, trends and market.

About State of SASE Networking 2021

The networking needs of companies continue to shift and change. With 2020 and the large shift to home working, security has become the big challenge to companies of all sizes.

To address this trend, there has been a large growth in interest in Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), a new approach to distributed security that combines needed network tools with cloud-based security solutions. Networking vendors have been at the forefront of this change, many pivoting to offer a SASE solution. 

This report aims to provide an understanding of this transition, to describe SASE, to categorise and understand the vendors that are switching to SASE or have been acquired by companies offering SASE.

Using product data and research gathered through Cavell’s vendor research programme, Cavell hopes to help the market understand the trajectory of network vendors into the SASE space.
