Secure Access Service Edge (SASE)


Secure Access Service Edge (SASE)

Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) is a Cloud-based IT model that bundles SD-WAN with network security functions into a single, global, Cloud service.

It provides a single network that connects and secures any enterprise resource – physical, Cloud, and mobile – anywhere.

SASE incorporates different technologies that embed security functions:

✓ Cloud web security gateway

✓ Firewall as a service

✓ Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) / Intrusion Detection System (IDS)

✓ Sandboxing

✓ Anti-malware

✓ Cloud access security broker (CASB)

Into the global network fabric:

✓  VPNs


✓ Zero-trust network access

✓ Remote access

✓ Quality of service (QOS)


Which ensures SASE is always available no matter where the user is, where the application or resource being accessed is, or what type of network technologies connects the user and the resource.

TDM Group partners with Cato Network
to deliver a true converged SASE service.

Cato is the world’s first SASE platform, converging SD-WAN and network security into a global Cloud service. Cato optimises and secures application access for all users and locations. Cato replaces legacy security products and network services with an agile and secure global network that is ready for whatever’s next.
