Secure access service edge (SASE) implementation simplifies traditional network architecture by merging network and security services on one global network. Instead of bottlenecking all traffic and users through a single, on-premise access point, SASE allows enterprises to route, inspect, and secure traffic in a single pass at the Internet edge.
Cloudflare is built on cloud-native infrastructure that we refer to as our global network. Our globally-distributed edge locations create a network fabric that brings security and performance capabilities as close to end users as possible, helping enterprises reduce latency, mitigate attacks close to the source, and seamlessly apply security controls to user connections.
Outdated infrastructure models required enterprises to secure the network perimeter with clunky, on-premise hardware. VPNs granted access to users outside the network perimeter, but often increased latency and expanded security vulnerabilities.
SASE moves network access from the network perimeter to the user. Access is determined by a granular, Zero Trust, policy-based model that verifies based on user identity and additional contextual factors.
