Key capabilities to keep you protected




Secure SD-WAN

SD-WAN combines traditional WAN capabilities with robust security measures to protect your data right at the WAN edge, while optimising network traffic for enhanced performance and end-user experiences. Our centralised management platform makes network configurations and security policy enforcement straightforward across all your sites, from home offices and micro-branches to large campuses.


Zero Trust Network Access

Built on the "never trust, always verify" principle, Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) ensures every attempt to connect to your network undergoes strict identity verification. It narrows the attack surface by granting access only to authenticated and authorised users and devices. Unlike traditional VPNs, permissions can be adjusted in real time for each user session.


Centralised Policy Management

With Centralised Policy Management, you maintain a consistent security posture across distributed networks. Regardless of where your data lies or where your team logs in from, this capability allows for swift adjustments to network configurations and security policies in response to emerging threats, compliance requirements, or business shifts, all through a single platform.


Network Automation

Automation empowers your network to be resilient and self-optimising, responding to traffic flows, user behaviour, and potential threats in real time. By automating the scaling of resources, the deployment of security policies, and other tasks, there’s minimal need for human intervention, leading to reduced errors and enhanced network responsiveness.


Cloud Configuration & Management

Cloud configuration and management capabilities allow for swift deployment, monitoring, and optimisation of your network configurations and security policies across your cloud environments. Everything from firewalls to intrusion detection systems is managed through a single control panel, ensuring your data remains consistently protected as networks and threats evolve.



Endpoint Protection

As the first line of defence, our sophisticated endpoint protection technology continuously scrutinises all devices linked to your network against a vast, cloud-stored threat intelligence database. It provides a centralised control system to enforce security policies and protocols, ensuring your data and workflows remain protected, anytime, anywhere.


Cloud Access Security Broker

Acting as a vigilant intermediary, our Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) makes sure every interaction between your users and cloud applications complies with your security policies. From spotting rogue apps and unauthorised user behaviour to encrypting data, CASB provides comprehensive protection against cloud-based threats.


Secure Web Gateway

Secure Web Gateway (SWG) inspects web traffic in real-time, preventing harmful content from reaching your network and disrupting your operations, whilst enforcing compliance with security policies, standards, and regulations. Applying URL filtering, advanced threat defence, traffic encryption, and other security measures, our SWG ensures staff can safely browse the web.


Data Loss Prevention

Data Loss Prevention (DLP) safeguards your most critical information, whether it's in transit, in use, or at rest. By examining content and context, our DLP effectively blocks potential data leaks — securing your financial details, personal identification information, and intellectual property from unauthorised access, while ensuring compliance with data privacy standards and regulations.



Firewall as a Service (FWaaS) delivers traditional firewall functionalities and advanced security capabilities directly from the cloud.

Frequently Asked Questions


What is SASE?

A Secure Access Service Edge is a framework, not a single deployable product, that combines various networking and security solutions into one cloud-delivered service. Essentially, it involves choosing the perfect mix of tools, platforms, and policies, all tailored to your specific requirements and setup, to guarantee fast, secure, and reliable access to business resources from any location and any device.

What does a successful SASE implementation look like?

Each Secure Access Service Edge implementation is as unique as the business it supports. What’s considered a successful deployment can also vary between use cases. But generally, a successful rollout should enhance the security and performance of your applications and make them much easier to manage. Your SASE partner should be able to showcase client success stories and help you define the right metrics and KPIs for tracking progress. 

In addition to the technical aspects of a successful SASE deployment, it’s also important to consider the impact of the rollout on workflows, processes, and communication patterns within a business. 

Communication and training should be provided to ensure that everyone understands the benefits of SASE and how it will affect their roles. This will also help foster a culture of collaboration and buy-in from all parties involved.

Regular check-ins and updates should be conducted throughout the deployment process to address any concerns or issues. 

Is SASE more expensive and time-consuming to manage than legacy infrastructure?

A Secure Access Service Edge offers a more cost-effective alternative to traditional infrastructure by removing the need for managing hardware and reducing the costs and complexity of dealing with multiple vendors and different technologies. Instead of heavy upfront capital expenditure, SASE moves towards a flexible operating expense model. It also lays down a scalable infrastructure that supports future growth, proving its value as a worthwhile long-term investment.

Will SASE just add another layer of complexity?

Simplicity is one of the key advantages of a Secure Access Service Edge. By integrating various security functions into one cloud-based service, SASE reduces the need for multiple standalone solutions. This centralised approach reduces time spent on system setup, management, and maintenance. 

What is the difference between SASE and SD-WAN?

SD-WAN is a networking approach designed to connect users across different locations, usually linking remote branches to a central network, using software-defined networking principles. 

SASE, on the other hand, not only incorporates SD-WAN but enhances it by directly integrating cloud-based security services (such as secure web gateways, cloud access security brokers, and zero trust network access) into the network. This means organisations can manage their networks and security from a central platform, significantly simplifying the overall setup.

What are some common SASE use cases?

Workplace transformation 

Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) have been the go-to solution for nearly two decades, allowing users to securely access network resources. However, VPNs struggle with handling large numbers of users simultaneously, often becoming overwhelmed, leading to slower application performance and making management more complicated for IT teams.

In contrast, a Secure Access Service Edge, as a cloud-native service, is built for scalability, making it easier to support a large remote workforce. Businesses can adapt rapidly to the needs of remote employees, providing security measures closer to users. 


Network modernisation

Traditional security measures weren't built for the dynamic, cloud-first world we operate in today. A Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) intelligently recognises and categorises application traffic right at the network's edge. It then securely isolates this traffic from the rest. With a Secure Access Service Edge approach, IT teams can upgrade their WANs to provide direct and secure access to apps and services across various cloud platforms, from any location and any device. 


High network performance 

Legacy networks, designed for a time when data stayed within the safety of corporate data centres, are now outdated. Today, we rely on applications hosted on various cloud services, accessed by a workforce that is both mobile and spread out. This shift beyond the traditional network boundary complicates the task of maintaining top-notch performance and security for vital applications and services.

SASE, a flexible architecture not tied to any one location, enhances network performance by strategically positioning connections closer to where the traffic originates and heads. This setup reduces the number of network hops, decreasing latency, improving overall performance, and lowering the chances for cyber threats to intercept data. 

There are plenty more use cases. Get in touch to find out more. 

What does the SASE implementation process involve?

Implementing a Secure Access Service Edge requires a planned, phased approach tailored to your organisation's needs. We start by evaluating your current network and security setup, identifying data locations, security consistency, network visibility, bottlenecks, team skills, and any vulnerabilities. 

From this initial analysis, we design a customised SASE strategy, taking into consideration factors like scalability, centralised policy control, support for unmanaged devices, and more. 

Deployment is a gradual process, usually starting with addressing your most urgent priorities. We then continuously monitor and adjust your SASE strategy to meet evolving business needs and protect against new threats.
