- First ever software-based unified SASE client from Netskope
Netskope, a cloud security company, is expanding its secure access service edge (SASE) portfolio by launching Endpoint SD-WAN, a software-based unified SASE client targeting remote workers. The vendor claims that the new Endpoint SD-WAN, when combined with its security service edge (SSE), essentially creates a “SASE for your laptop.”
According to Parag Thakore, Netskope’s SVP, the SD-WAN will leverage the unified SASE client, which is a software delivered to user endpoints without requiring any hardware appliance.
Netskope claims that the newly launched Endpoint SD-WAN is the first true secure access service edge (SASE) product for remote workers, as other solutions rely on legacy clients like VPN combined with security service edge (SSE) for those use cases. According to Parag Thakore, Netskope’s SVP, VPN clients cannot optimize performance, so users typically have to deploy an SD-WAN appliance for home offices, which means that these are not integrated SASE scenarios. Also, VPN, zero-trust network access (ZTNA), secure web gateway (SWG), cloud access service broker (CASB), data loss prevention (DLP), and SD-WAN appliances are often used as point products to form a disaggregated SASE.
Unified SASE client will be generally available by later this year.
