Cyber Security for the Hybrid Workforce

Gartner recently proposed an architecture that would build on existing SD-WAN offerings to add cloud-scale security capabilities and converge the network and security layer. This architecture, called Secure Access Service Edge, or SASE, has become a key aspect of many technology vendor offerings, and can provide material benefits for enterprises adopting a “work from anywhere” model, with users far more distributed than before.

Intelys has been providing integrated network and security solutions for more than 10 years, far longer than SASE has existed as a phrase in the industry. We strongly believe that enterprises can benefit from moving away from traditional appliances for securing Internet access and providing protection against malware and other threats.

What are the key components of a SASE solution?

The key components of any SASE solution include the following:


  • Telco and ISP underlay
  • SD-WAN overlay
  • Link Monitoring and optimization
  • Network aggregation


  • Cloud Access Service Broker (CASB)
  • Secure Web Gateway (SWG)
  • Zero-Trust Network Access (ZTNA)
