Why so SASE?
Converging Networking and Security Access Anywhere, Anytime

Digital transformation is powering a massive dispersion of applications, services, users, IoT systems and edge compute beyond the traditional enterprise perimeter. SASE (Secure Access Service Edge) is emerging as the most effective solution to connect and secure these increasingly distributed enterprise assets.

Join an Optiv-hosted panel of industry experts to learn how SASE enables highly tailored security inspection and network performance that can be easily managed via a cloud-delivered service based on granular identity and context. During this panel, Todd Weber, Optiv’s Chief Technology Officer, will be joined by Jason Georgi, Field CTO Prisma Access of Palo Alto Networks, James Robinson, Deputy CISO of Netskope, and Optiv's own Brett Kelsey, SVP of Integration and Innovation as they discuss important considerations and the benefits of planning your SASE journey today.
