BLOG: How SASE Enhances User Security Online

It’s interesting to note how technology both simplifies and complicates our lives.

With the advancement of technology, we have a new concern—online security. Whether we are conducting business or connecting with family and friends across the world, online security has become critical.

Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) is the newest security trend to hit the world of cybersecurity for business. Gartner, a leading research and advisory company, coined the term in 2019.

Read on to learn more about SASE (pronounced ‘sassy’) and how it can keep users safe on the web!

Why is cybersecurity so important?

The statistics are scary. More people are falling victim to hacking and online scams. Sensitive personal and business information often falls into the wrong hands.

According to a study conducted by Michael Cukier of the Clark School Center for Risk and Reliability and Institute for Systems Research at the University of Maryland, hackers attack every 39 seconds or an average of 2,244 times a day. As more people access the internet from even the most remote corners of the earth, website traffic has increased dramatically.

Our current cybersecurity systems are at risk of becoming overwhelmed. The increased movement from the data centers to cloud storage can also raise vulnerability to cyberattacks.

Why choose SASE

Our twenty-first century needs are evolving. SASE is a breath of fresh air from complex codes and is set to be a household name in the cybersecurity industry.

SASE is a new idea that fuses the benefits of a Wide Area Network (WAN) and security services, such as Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), into one functional cloud model.

With SASE, no assumptions are made about the capacity for secure communication. Every user device is first identified and assessed at the network entry point. If the device passes, then other measures are adopted before they are offered secure single access to the content.

Should you jump on the SASE bandwagon? Yes.

Here’s why:


With SASE, you are more assured of cybersecurity. Nothing should be left to chance, especially data protection. This is especially true for businesses that handle sensitive customer data.

SASE relieves you of this worry.


SASE is simple to install and use. You don’t have to be a tech guru to access this service. Instead of investing in many different platforms, you can use one that offers all the features you need.

For staff, it makes security in cyberspace a lot less tedious.

In real-time

SASE is a real-time package. This is attractive to many users. With SASE, you get continuous monitoring, so you never feel like you’re being under-protected.

A wider reach

With the Wide Area Network, accessing the internet from even remote locations becomes more feasible.

Great potential

Although this concept has gained momentum, it’s still evolving. SASE has the potential for so much more, and we can expect to see many new features.


We must make a conscious effort to protect ourselves and take the proper security precautions online. SASE can provide users with peace of mind. Reach out to Helm to learn more.
