Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO), the leader in enterprise networking and security, today launches a new, expanded Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) offer. This is the next important step in Cisco’s journey to radically simplify security and networking by helping network operations (NetOps) and security operations (SecOps) teams securely connect users to applications. Additionally, today Cisco announces enhancements to its cloud-native platform, SecureX to more quickly and effectively manage new and emerging threats.
Work is no longer a location but an experience, and the global events of the last year have made working from anywhere the norm. At the same time, this trend increased the complexity of managing networks and security across an expanding attack surface of users, devices, applications, and data. As the hub shifts from the data center to the user, a SASE architecture has emerged as a top organizational priority to provide seamless connection to applications.
