Jason Barber, channel marketing manager, and Dominic Middleton, cybersecurity partner specialist, Cisco, lay the foundation for what SASE (Secure Access Service Edge) is, what it means to Cisco and how it ties into Cisco’s Umbrella security.
During the presentation, partners (sales and sales engineers) will learn how to use Umbrella and the Partner Console to start the Cisco Security SASE conversation.
The video also covers the following topics:
—Internet traffic now makes up about 80% of customers’ traffic compared to 20% five years ago. This dramatic shift leads to the need for more MPLS tunnels and site-to-site VPN tunnels, which can drive up costs significantly.
—4 out of 5 organizations are adapting to these challenges by shifting away from site-to-site VP to a direct internet access (DIA) model.
—SASE is the convergence of the following networking and security services:
- SWG (Secure Web Gateway)
- CASB (Cloud Access Security Broker)
- DNS (Domain Name System) protection
- Firewall as a service
- SD-WAN (Software-Defined Wide Area Network)
- Zero-trust network access
SASE can help Cisco partners adapt to their customers’ digital transformations and provide comprehensive security in a way that reduces security complexity and costs.
