Fast and secure network access for remote workers

The surge in remote work has given rise to new cybersecurity challenges, rendering traditional VPNs insufficient. To address this, businesses need to enact robust measures, like remote access security, device management, data security and network segmentation.


What is SASE?

SASE (Secure Access Service Edge) is a cloud-native solution that consolidates advanced networking and security functions into a single unified service, providing secure access to applications and data from anywhere in the world. Offering comprehensive security, low latency, enhanced scalability and reduced costs.

How it works

SASE combines the best of networking and security, simplifying connectivity for users and devices to applications and data, ensuring a secure digital experience. With networking services like Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) and SaaS Acceleration, and security features such as Next-Gen Firewall (NGFW) and Secure Web Gateway (SWG), SASE offers efficient connectivity and robust protection. Whether you’re working from the office or remotely, SASE provides a user-centric, secure access experience.


Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) allows devices to connect to a company’s applications, data and services with confidence. Grounded in a robust security model of “never trust, always verify,” the zero-trust approach revolves around precisely defined access control policies.

SafeCheck with Datto RMM

Keep compromised and at-risk endpoints from joining your network. With SafeCheck you have the power to enforce security policies, granting or rejecting network access based on the health of the mobile device.

Policy enforcement

With next-generation firewalling from the cloud, administrators can enforce security policies as if the user was in the office behind the corporate firewall. Granular controls by user or group ensures policies are enforced regardless of where the user is located.

Always-On Connectivity

Ensure remote users remain securely connected. Latency often leads users to disable their VPNs, but Always-On prevents this by maintaining an uninterrupted, secure connection from any location. Stay protected and connected at all times.

SASE is cyber security technology designed to manage access to networks and maintain security controls. The concept of SASE combines multiple network security protocols into one solution. These protocols include: wide area networking, or WAN, and network security services like CASB, FWaaS and Zero Trust.

For SMBs SASE solutions improve efficiency of managing multiple networks. The reason for this is that these controls are managed by a cloud-based application, which makes deploying security standards easy.

As a result SASE solutions are able to enforce policies around digital identity, real-time context and regulatory compliance standards. These enhance the overall security position of a network. it ‘s important to note that SASE should never be used as a complete solution to network security.

Traditional VPN tools are standalone applications, whereas SASE solutions combine a number of features and tools into one platform. For example Datto Secure edge includes these key SASE features:

  • Secure web gateway
  • Firewall as a service (FWaaS)
  • Software defined Wide Area Network
  • Zero trust network access

Overall, SASE delivers a more complete and secure solution than a traditional VPN.

As the number of remote workers that managed service providers support grows, clients expect their networks to remain secured. Datto secure edge is a cloud based SASE solution that ensures MSP and SMB IT professionals can secure remote and hybrid user environments with ease.

Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) provides devices secure remote access to a company's applications, data, and services. The zero trust security model is based on clearly defined access control policies.

One of the key benefits of a zero trust approach compared to VPN is that ZTNA grants access only to specific services or applications, rather than the whole network.

As an increasing number of users connect from home or remote, SASE or ZTNA solutions can help reduce risks to cyber threats.

Yes. SASE contains Zero Trust Network Access as a main component of its architecture.

The VPN hides the IP address of a device when it communicates with confidential computing resources outside the corporate network. With VPNs you can protect your identity while using public or shared wifi. Furthermore, the data on your device will be encrypted to prevent any damaging exposure to bad actors.
