What's your vendor strategy for Security Service Edge (SSE)?

February 2022

by Neil Langridge

Security Service Edge (SSE) is something that you’re going to hear a lot about, as organisations look to secure access to cloud applications and services. It’s something that Gartner® have been discussing, and have just announced a new Magic Quadrant™ for SSE. 

"By 2025, 80% of enterprises will have adopted a strategy to unify web, cloud services and private application access from a single vendor’s security service edge (SSE) platform."
(Gartner, Magic Quadrant for Security Service Edge, Lawrence Orans, John Watts, Craig Lawson, Charlie, Winckless, 24 January 2022).

SASE is a model that has seen significant growth, as an approach that reinvents network and cybersecurity strategies as a converged, cloud-focused service that enables people to work anywhere. However, many organisations have looked for a more specific, security-focused approach, and SSE is the security half of Secure Access Service Edge (SASE). 

SEE represents the convergence of three key technologies:
·        Secure Web Gateway (SWG)
·        Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB)
·        Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA)
