More performance and security for your IT services

How you can protect your applications and data and use them more efficiently, with new security architecture

Self check: Ready for SASE?

Does your infrastructure support digital transformation?

An increasing number of companies are using cloud services to become more agile. Are you one of them? If this is the case, is your infrastructure growing accordingly? A cloud transformation always presents the network with new challenges. Instead of central applications, apps such as MS 365 are distributed in the cloud. Locations and users must be securely connected at all times and from anywhere. In the white paper, you can find out how Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) can help you achieve this.

Network performance and cybersecurity: the perfect couple

How can we guarantee you high worldwide performance if you are working with cloud services like AWS or Microsoft 365? How can a network and all endpoints be fully protected? The answer is security architecture based on Secure Access Service Edge (SASE). The cloud-based framework combines WAN and security: you will get modern, future-proof architecture that ensures you have the best connection and optimum protection across the whole network and periphery. This means your users can work more productively and create added value for your company.

Avoid the network becoming a bottleneck

Central network access is particularly detrimental for employees in external locations. With this set-up, they have slower connections and a poor user experience, which makes them less efficient. The solution is local breakouts. Using cloud-based branches, employees can get connected directly with AWS or Microsoft Cloud. This reduces latency and provides positive user experiences.

Zero trust: secure connections for remote workstations

Employees also need secure access to the internet and cloud services when working from home or on the go, where they can get high performance without a detour through the central company network. Applications are therefore mapped in the cloud via connectors and can only be used individually by authorized users. As opposed to the earlier practice of checking IP addresses, the digital identities of employees can now be verified with a service like Zero Trust Network Access, to ensure that only authorized users can access your applications and data.

These are the key advantages of SASE

SASE primarily supplies functions through a cloud-based platform. This means that your admins do not have to install any hardware or software – upgrades and maintenance are carried out automatically. This not only reduces complexity and costs, but also reduces the workload of your IT team, who can then focus on tasks that add value to your company. Moreover, SASE strengthens your compliance, as security policies can be installed centrally and can be observed across the whole network. All security features that are being used are always kept current and provide effective protection against cyber threats like advanced threats, botnets or cross-site scripting.

We can raise your security architecture to the next level

We can work with you to determine the current state of your infrastructure and plan what the appropriate type of security architecture would be for you. You will benefit from our many years of experience from global security projects and our security operations centers that look out for cyber threats around the clock. We work together with you to complete a feasibility analysis for SASE, as well as the configuration, integration, testing, and launch of the new security framework. We will modernize your infrastructure and make your network fit for the cloud age.
