Total Visibility and Control for All: Traffic, Users, and Applications Everywhere. SASE defined the convergence of two distinct technology markets, the WAN edge (SD-WAN) and network security.


In 2019, Gartner introduced the Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) category. SASE defined the convergence of two distinct technology markets, the WAN edge (SD-WAN) and network security, into a global cloud service that enables secure and optimized access to any user, at any location, and to any application. The security pillar of SASE included Secure Web Gateway (SWG), Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) with Data Loss Prevention (DLP), Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), and Firewall as a Service (FWaaS) delivered as a cloud service.

Two years later, Gartner introduced a new category called the Security Service Edge
(SSE) to describe a more limited scope of convergence focused on network security. SSE converged three security components, SWG, CASB/DLP, and ZTNA into a single cloud service. SSE provides secure access to applications without directly addressing the end- to-end optimized network connectivity and east-west WAN security aspects of that access. These remain part of a separate technology stack including technologies such as SD-WAN, Next Generation Firewalls (NGFWs), and global network backbones.
