"SASE brings down the administrative cost, particularly as employees connect from anywhere," says Yask Sharma, CISO at Indian Oil Corp. Ltd.

To effectively implement the SASE model, an organization must develop a thorough understanding of how to manage network and identity security in a new way, says Sridhar Sidhu, senior vice president and head of information security services group at Wells Fargo Enterprise Global Services - India.

To enhance security, some organizations are expanding use of the SASE framework to the devices of users working at home, says Rishi Rajpal, vice president, global security at Concentrix.

This panel discussion was held at Information Security Media Group’s recent Cybersecurity Summit: India & SAARC.

  • Various scenarios for deploying SASE;
