As your workloads move to the cloud and SaaS applications, it is critical to ensure reliable, fast, and secure connectivity for all your sites and remote users. There is a need - a faster, more agile network architecture to handle increased traffic from cloud apps, distributed sites, and off-network users.
Low Visibility and High Risk
Silo offerings of Networking & Security lead to lack of visibility and fragmented control increasing security exposure. Rigid and static non-cloud network and fragmented security is incompatible with the digital business spread across the cloud, SaaS applications, branches and remote workers.
Slow and Cumbersome IT Rollouts
IT teams have to configure Network & Security through multiple consoles, struggling to maintain consistency and control, leading to slow provisioning of new resources. The day-to-day operations of scaling, sizing, and upgrading take most of the time leaving little to no time to get business-specific projects done.
Higher TCO & Higher Complexity
Separate Network & Security purchase means more cost in purchase, integration, and maintenance. Multiple branches and time zones and processes, increase the complexity exponentially whilst decreasing the quality of service.
Faster Cloud Adoption
With the IaaS clouds, SaaS applications, cloud storage and remote working, the modern client-to-cloud, enterprise does not have the data center as the focal point of access. With Networking Perimeter Expansion, the security requirements are no longer consistent across entities.
WFA / Remote Workers & BYOD
With Work from Anywhere (WFA), the employees of today use their personal devices for business purposes. The proliferation of IoT devices adds to the strain of unmanaged devices. Enterprises require consistent users and assets policies regardless of location - a data center, cloud platform, or a SaaS provider.
RAY SASE ARCHITECTURE
Identity & context are the key to SASE and SASE converges networking and security capabilities into a single cloud-native service that shifts the security focus from traffic-flow-centric to identity-centric with the ultimate goal to protect users, applications, and data everywhere.
Users & applications connect to the SASE cloud service which encompasses a package of technologies that embeds security into the global fabric of the network to enable safe use applications and data with the consistent enforcement of security policy regardless of where the user is, where the application or resource being accessed is, or what combination of transport technologies connects the user and the resource.
Ray SASE consolidates multiple point products, including ZTNA, Cloud SWG, CASB, FWaaS, Secure SD-WAN and ADEM, into a single integrated service, reducing network and security complexity while increasing organizational agility.
RAY SASE ARCHITECTURE
RAY SASE COMPONENTS
SASE is an entire package of technologies that embeds security into the global fabric of the network. The components of NGFW, SWG or CASB are engaged in a connection while the SD-WAN and ZTNA form the fundamental capabilities, integral to the fabric of SASE.
Secure Web Gateway (SWG)
Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB)
Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA)
Firewalling: NGFW and Firewall-as-a-Service (FWaaS)
SASE FEATURES & BENEFITS
Unified Policy-based Automation
SASE’s network access is determined by a Zero Trust, policy-based model that verifies based on user identity & contextual factors. Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) provides distributed and consistent corporate security policy enforcement per session regardless of where the user is, what device is used, what asset is accessed, or where the asset is located.
Automate workflows to create network slices and continuously verify access sessions and policies whether users are remote, mobile, or working from a branch office by creating policies once and apply them anywhere.
Simplify and Secure Network Access
Firewall-as-a-Service (FWaaS) provides ML-powered threat prevention, application profiling, intrusion prevention, web filtering, antispam, and full-fledged network access control without capital expenditure costs. Enterprises can reduce their attack surface by enabling Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) to verify and allow only the right user to access the right corporate resources.
Ray SASE uses high-performance routing and innovative identity-based session integrity to consistently secure all users, applications, and infrastructure and even IoT, used by your hybrid workforce, regardless of whether users are remote, mobile, or working from a branch office.
Cloud-delivered SASE enables setting up new branches or remote offices in a matter of minutes with the simplicity from a single cloud platform.
Secure SD-WAN automatically makes dynamic, on-the-fly adjustments to QoS and application usage policies depending on real-time network measurements, ensuring high performance and minimum latency to optimize user experience.
SASE ensures user access and an optimized experience for mission-critical applications, in situations like single link failure, degraded network conditions or during peak demand times.Eliminating backhauled traffic flows reduces client-to-cloud latency and increases the user experience.
Reduces Costs and Complexity
Silo Network & Security infrastructure are replaced by a single software stack that reduces both CAPex and OPex costs. Reduces OPex by replacing expensive MPLS and leased lines, with broadband, LTE, and other connection types.
Ray SASE provides direct internet breakouts for remote users and thereby eliminating backhauled traffic flows reduces transport costs, data centre aggregation, optimizes client-to-cloud delays, and streamlines the operation of communication networks.
Allows pay-as-you-go plans (subscription models) that defray high upfront investment costs and ongoing maintenance and upgrade fees.
RAY SASE COMPONENTS
Single Integrated Architecture
An integrated architecture combines Secure SD-WAN, Wired & Wireless Networking, Zero Trust Security, Deep Analytics into one software solution powered by the cloud & AI accessible from a single, easy-to-use management interface hosted on-premises or in the cloud.
Disruptive Pricing Model
No hidden costs, no additional products, no painful integrations, no unnecessary appliances but rather pay-as-you-go plans (subscription models) for the most robust suite of SASE services on the market.
