Study shows solutions exceed expectations in remote work connectivity and security

CybersecurityDataEnterprise SecurityTop Stories

Masergy, the software-defined-network and cloud platform for the digital enterprise, and Fortinet, a global leader in broad, integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions, has released the results of a new Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) research study from CIO. The findings show recent trends are accelerating investments in SASE solutions with recognised benefits exceeding expectations across five key categories – most notably remote work connectivity and security performance.

This trend is the reason Fortinet and Masergy teamed up in 2020 to deliver a highly differentiated SASE architecture that converges security and networking. The Masergy-delivered SASE offering is built using Fortinet Secure SD-WAN, which converges highly scalable SD-WAN, next-generation firewall, advanced routing and Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) into a single solution. Combined with Masergy’s global software-defined-network, 24/7 network and security management services, industry-leading service level agreements and exceptional customer experience, the joint SASE offering helps redefine what is possible for future-thinking businesses.

“An overwhelming majority of respondents (98%) believe convergence of network and security is critical or very important,” said Franz Chavez, Vice President, Solutions Engineering at Masergy, now part of Comcast Business. “We know that building intelligence across disciplines is essential in a world where work is no longer defined by location. Network and security teams require new ways of working together – across all domains and resources with shared visibility to drive actionable insights. That’s where SASE is gaining steam.”
