The Recipe For Your First SASE

SASE (secure access service edge) represents the convergence of networking and security into a cloud-delivered service. This architectural paradigm shift is getting both enterprises and security solution providers to re-evaluate the way that they deliver security services across every IT environment. Like with many evolving technologies there is a lot of confusion about what is

Building Points of Presence for SASE

The IT landscape has changed. Networks centralized around a data center no longer make sense when applications are served from the cloud and users are working from remote locations. The internet has become a staple of enterprise networks but brings along security concerns that can no longer be solved with on-premise security appliances. SASE architectures

SASE and the Electric Vehicle Revolution

When electric cars first began gaining popularity, traditional car companies thought they could easily replicate them and didn’t devote much time to develop a competing product. You could argue some still have their head in the sand, but we’ll reserve that topic for another blog.  What the traditional car companies were reluctant to realize was

The Security and Compliance Benefits of Integrating Identity and Network Access

The term “identity-based networking” refers to the concept of an end user’s identity being tied to the network services they are allowed to receive. The initial implementations of this concept can be seen in ubiquitous network services such as 802.1x. Wireless networks have been applying the basics of identity-based networking to users who joined wireless

Predict the Future of SASE With an Eye to the Past

It was not that long ago that a wide variety of security and networking technologies first erupted in the market. Firewalls, anti-virus, IDS/IPS, web content management, site-to-site and user VPNs were offered by dozens of different vendors on dedicated appliances without a thought to centralized management or product integration. From this chaos came the next

Cloud, Mobility and the Rise of SASE

The adoption of cloud technologies and an increase in user mobility are driving fundamental changes to IT infrastructure. These changes are resulting in a seamless work environment for end-users and increased productivity across every facet of enterprise organizations. Meanwhile, the components needed to secure and connect the modern business have never been more disconnected. This

The Path to Victory in the SASE Market

The victor in the evolving SASE market will deliver the highest quality user experience by solving the security service chaining problem while competing head-on with the legacy security solutions that dominate IT security spending today. They will build their solution on a platform that integrates software-defined networking, edge computing, and solves the expensive problems of

Lowering the Cost of Connectivity

This blog provides an overview of our upcoming webinar, Lowering the Cost of Connectivity: Increasing the ROI of Cloud Applications. Trustgrid’s Chief Product Officer, Joe Gleinser, will guide participants through the problems, solutions and implementation process of secure cloud to on-premise connectivity and its cost-saving implications. The cloud is changing IT infrastructure, allowing application providers

The 4 Biggest Misconceptions About MPLS

Everyday we speak with companies looking for ways to improve the cost and performance of their application’s connectivity. When the topic of MPLS comes up, there is a predictable groan of resigned disappointment. No one is coming to its defense. How can a technology that is so widely used, be so uniformly disliked?  Normally, technologies
