In February 2022, Gartner released clarification for the SASE framework along with a new Magic Quadrant (MQ) for Security Services Edge and the Critical Capabilities for Security Services Edge (SSE) report. The new SSE MQ, led to the retirement of the Secure Web Gateway (SWG) and Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) MQs. This clarification helped distinguish two main service/product areas, WAN Edge Services and Security Services Edge, where previously the messaging grouped all these capabilities together.
Along with Gartner’s redefinition of SASE and introduction of SSE, Netskope released four core tenets that an SSE platform must address. These tenets are:
Additional details for each of these core tenets, can be found in Jason Clark’s Blog post: https://www.optiv.com/insights/discover/blog/security-service-edge-and-your-sase-journey
Netskope’s core SSE tenets are addressed by their best of breed products, technology, and network integrated into a single easy to use tenant. For additional details on Netskope’s product capabilities, please visit https://www.netskope.com/products.
While some think that the redefinition of SASE and SSE by Gartner was a step backwards, I believe it provided a much-needed clarification. This clarification now provides better delineation between the SASE framework that will allow potential customers to more clearly define their internal requirements to ensure they are picking a correct solution or solutions for their business. This clarification will force the security and networking vendors to be able to clearly define if they’re a WAN Edge Service, SSE, or if they may have capabilities in both areas which likely contributed to the misunderstanding of SASE in the market over the last two years.
Optiv has monthly Netskope SSE workshops that allow potential customers to get a hands-on experience with Netskope’s SSE capabilities across cloud, web, and private applications. Our workshops are led by our Netskope Partner Architect, Matt Frank.
