Webinar: Using SASE to secure and optimize remote work

Posted on April 27, 2021

If you’ve ever wondered why SASE is being touted as the new IT foundation for remote work and hybrid business models, here’s a webinar you won’t want to miss.

Today, work-from-home and digital business interactions have become standard practice, and as a result every IT leader is focused on enabling the distributed workforce. So, how should remote network access be secured, and what emerging technologies are best suited to help in that effort? Masergy has partnered with industry analysts at research firm Metrigy to help IT professionals answer those questions in a new webinar, “Using SASE to Secure and Optimize Your Remote Workers.”

The biggest issues with remote work

According to the latest Metrigy research, some of the key issues IT leaders are trying to address are:

  1. How to configure and design WANs, security, applications, and management in a permanently changed workplace where employees truly will work from anywhere regularly.
  2. How to most effectively and affordably integrate security and the network to protect corporate data and improve application performance for voice and video conferencing–given that so many employees will work remotely on any device.
  3. How to address both of the above issues while moving infrastructure, platforms, and applications to the cloud.

SASE: the new category of solutions for remote and hybrid work

A new type of solution known as secure access service edge (SASE) is gaining popularity as a better way to approach secure access for remote workers. In fact, 37.3% of companies were already using components of SASE as of late 2020, according to Metrigy’s research. But why is SASE earning this adoption? This is the focus of the webinar, which will unpack more of the latest research in work-from-home trends, the biggest challenges of remote work, and Masergy’s best-of-breed SASE and Work-from-Anywhere solutions.

Metrigy President and Principal Analyst Irwin Lazar joins me in explaining the role of IT in securing and proactively managing remote access and collaboration. This interactive session goes beyond the basic requirements of a SASE solution with Irwin’s key considerations. Plus, attendees get an overview of Masergy’s SASE offerings, understanding how solutions can go further, bundled with SD-WAN designed specifically for the at-home and remote worker as well advanced AI engines that automate the tasks of cloud application performance optimization.

In the end, attendees will walk away with:

  • The latest trends in digital business and remote workforce enablement
  • Key ways SASE forms the foundation of a successful remote work strategy
  • Insight into how Masergy’s SASE solutions can automate IT using AIOps

Join us as we explore how new ways to significantly improve both the network and security issues companies are experiencing now.
