According to the Forrester report, “Historic security and networking approaches don’t support today’s distributed enterprises, which demand competent, secure connectivity from virtually anywhere.”1 This is why we’ve seen such an increase in interest in Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) architectures for device and user protection, and in the overarching Zero Trust approach, of which SASE is a key component.
While organizations have found Zero Trust principles promising in the short term to help secure a remote workforce, Forrester predicts that “In five years, they will use [Zero Trust Edge] ZTE to securely connect data centers, factories, and hospitals.”
