What is SASE?
SASE (Secure Access Service Edge) is a high level of SD-WAN which adds a layer of security to the SD-WAN solutions. Traditional connectivity through SD-WAN tunnels your internet connection to either a virtual or physical firewall to protect the users and the traffic. Now that so many people, possibly including your medical team members, work outside of a traditional office, there is a great need to push security protocols directly to the “edge.” This security should be extended to any personal and business devices being used to access critical systems.
SASE creates enterprise security for every end user’s device. As this is a fairly new term coined by Gartner, the capacity of individual service providers vary greatly. Some of them are better for cloud applications, some of them are better for voice quality control and all of them are better than no SASE solution at all. Security is a top concern for your healthcare practice, and should be at the forefront for your team members as well.
