Security Service Edge
SECURITY SERVICE EDGE (SSE) FOCUSED ON FIREWALL AS A SERVICE
Security Service Edge (SSE) technology is new to the market with security vendors continuing to introduce their technology offerings in the space. This first of its kind test for SSE was published by CyberRatings.org in June focused on Firewall as a Service. The test covers Management, Routing and Policy Enforcement, Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), SSL/TLS Functionality and Performance.
Introduced by Gartner in a late 2019 blog post as Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), technologies include SD-WAN, SWG, CASB, ZTNA and FWaaS as core abilities. Gartner then introduced SSE in 2021 as a subset of SASE which excluded the SD-WAN.
