Yes, we’re all going to be at home for the foreseeable future. Does that leave you feeling insecure?

Or is it time to get SASE?


Webcast After more than six months, the shine is wearing off working from home – not just for the workers, but for the security teams who need to rethink pretty much everything about how to protect them and their companies.

It seems certain that a large proportion of the workforce will continue logging on from home indefinitely. This means companies are radically rethinking how they manage connectivity, with SD-WAN coming to the fore. It also means traditional data center or perimeter-based security approaches just aren’t going to cut it. At the same time, new technologies and threats have to be considered.

Clearly it would make sense if there was an approach that accounted for and scaled with this new world of remote workers, dispersed enterprises, and dynamic connectivity. Well, there is, and it’s called Secure Access Service Edge (SASE).

The aim of SASE is to combine network and security functions with WAN capabilities, and you can hear a lot more about it in our upcoming webcast, Is a remote workforce making your organisation less secure?, on December 8, at 11am GMT.

The Reg’s own broadcasting whiz Tim Phillips, a pretty sassy character himself, will be joined by Fortinet’s Patrick Grillo, a veteran of both the networking and security worlds.

They will discuss how the need to protect both the organisation and the employee involves bringing together connectivity and security. They’ll also discuss whether VPN is a viable long-term solution, and whether it’s time to embrace SASE models.

So, whether networking or security is your thing, you should really tune into this webcast, brought to you by Fortinet. All you need to do register here, and we’ll do the rest, including sending you a reminder on the day.
