To protect 21st Century businesses requires a new connected and automated approach to security. Discover why SASE architecture is how your enterprise protects its network from today’s and tomorrow’s cyberthreats.

In the wake of COVID-19, enterprises have quickly realized their security infrastructure has to change to meet the needs of their transformed workforces and the demands of their customers and commercial partners.

The cloud has continued to dominate how companies manifest their networks, but a new approach leverages the cloud in a security context is needed as businesses move into the post-pandemic trading environment.

As workforces adopted remote working, the networks they connected to quickly revealed where security had to be rapidly improved. The business that wanted to move to a zero-trust model, and abandon their existing hardware-based perimeter protection, could see that cloud-based SASE was the way forward.

One of the most mature SASE deployments currently in the marketplace is Juniper Networks’ Mist AI. Designed for the cloud, to learn more about how Mist AI and SASE can deliver unprecedented levels of network security to your business, Juniper Networks’ recent webinar 5 Ways Enhanced Security and Smart Connectivity Can Boost Your Business’s Performance webinar, gives a complete overview of how your business can migrate to a SASE model today.

All businesses are re-drawing their digital transformation roadmaps in the wake of the pandemic. Underpinning these plans is to increase their use of cloud-based services. Embracing the cloud as a fundamental component of your business’s security stance will deliver the flexible network access your staff need – all within a defined security environment that SASE can create.

According to Gartner, by 2025, at least 60% of enterprises will have explicit strategies and timelines for SASE adoption encompassing user, branch and edge access, up from 10% in 2020.

This is an astonishing leap in SASE adoption but speaks volumes about the powerful flexibility SASE deployments can deliver to any enterprise looking to revise its digital security from the ground up. Having the ability to manage security from any location that encompasses every device connected to the network, offers comprehensive and integrated cloud-based protection that has not been possible until now.

Juniper Networks has been developing its SASE model to meet the demands of today’s businesses, which can see that a critical element of their enterprise is how it manages cybersecurity across its networks. For example, our recent webinar closely considers how network security – particularly in an environment often dominated by Wi-Fi – needs a flexible approach that the cloud can deliver to your business.

Your business’s SASE journey begins by understanding how your business will embrace the SASE architecture that will support your new security environment. Juniper Networks has long experience working with companies from a wide range of industries and sectors. It’s essential to create and then deliver a comprehensive, integrated, and unified security policy across your enterprise’s network.

The transformation of your company’s security to a SASE based model has many components that must be considered. Front of mind at the moment is, of course, how permanent mass remote working will be supported and secured. Here, the SASE cloud partnerships are ideal, as once deployed, this security stance can grow and evolve as your business does.

Businesses looking to move their business forward and secure all their network access can use SASE to reduce complexity, which in turn, removes much of the operational overheads your business may be suffering from. Using Mist AI coupled with a SASE cloud deployment is a proven path to future-focused robust and comprehensive security.
