A Comprehensive SASE Solution to Secure the Hybrid Workforce

Published by Fortinet

With the rise of the hybrid workforce, organizations must now secure their employees who access the network and applications from on-site and off-site. This work-from-anywhere (WFA) shift has significantly expanded the attack surface, encompassing home offices and mobile workers, thereby increasing the complexity of network, application, and resource security.

Organizations dealing with numerous remote offices and WFA employees often encounter difficulties in consistently applying and enforcing security policies, as well as ensuring an optimal work experience for users, regardless of their network location.

Securing this hybrid workforce environment presents a unique challenge as the changes have occurred organically rather than through a carefully planned strategy. The rapid proliferation of new network edges and the inclusion of WFA employees, often implemented as independent projects, have created vulnerabilities that cybercriminals are eagerly exploiting.

A secure access service edge (SASE) architecture helps address these exploits by extending secure access and high-performance connectivity to users anywhere. However, many SASE solutions only solve part of the problem. They either fail to provide enterprise-grade cybersecurity to WFA employees or are unable to seamlessly integrate with the range of physical and virtual network and security tools deployed at the network edge. Or both. The result is an inability to deliver a consistent security posture and optimal user experience for all employees.

FortiSASE, built on the Fortinet single-vendor approach, delivers a comprehensive SASE solution by integrating cloud-delivered software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) connectivity with a cloud-delivered security service edge (SSE) to extend the convergence of networking and security from the network edge to WFA employees.
