As our digital landscape continues to become more volatile with new and complex threats from malicious actors - SASE continues to gain momentum. Security consolidation and security as a platform is also gaining a lot of focus as organisations begin to realise the benefits of moving away from legacy tech and reducing point products.
SASE & its extended capabilities as a single security platform have proven to deliver increased protection and provide organisations with new levels of visibility and control through AI & SOC automation. These tools are also delivering enhanced user experiences.
Understand why - security consolidation is key to fighting modern threats.
Did you know that SASE provides Application Observability through Autonomous Digital Experience Management (ADEM) and AI and automation under a single security platform? One security platform greatly improves Detection and Response capabilities for businesses with complete protection.MDR (Managed Detection and Response) on one platform (one brain) also allows you to build true SOC capability within budget.
The concept of security consolidation is fairly simple, the architecture involves a multi-layered approach to essentially cover and protect all possible attack surfaces ranging from an organisations network, cloud landscape to IoT devices.
It can be utilised to enhance an organisations overall security posture by addressing issues surrounding connectivity growth and security inefficiency.
Palo Alto Networks Founder and CTO, Nir Zuk discusses the benefits of security consolidation in this online video here.
Here's the key benefits of security consolidation:
Its cost effective & easier to deploy - Well not only is it cost effective, it's also easier to deploy and manage which can be crucial for organisations with a tight security budget.
With the boom in AI technology, Nir Zuk believes implementing a consolidated architecture would be beneficial when it comes to building an AI driven automated SOC. Particularly when it comes to collating the right data from network security, endpoint security products, cloud security products, SASE security products, and identity access management.
Your organisation will be safe in 5 years -He believes those organisations that opt for consolidation will be safe in 5 years as their cyber security machines will be run by AI machines, resulting in the ability to 'detect and stop attacks as they happen'.
