Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) Platform

What is SASE?

SASE is a networking architecture that deploys, manages, and delivers cloud-based services to end-users. This connection is provided to remote users directly via the cloud, preventing network engineers from having to route their traffic through their data center. 

A SASE platform is a combination of Security Service Edge (SSE), Software as a Service (SaaS), and Access hardware to handle the access portion of SASE architecture, which allows the edge services to be deployed and managed. Together, they form the network architecture enterprises strive to build, making a modern workflow possible in the age of the remote workplace.


Secure your remote connections with SASE management solutions

A prime use case for SASE is the shift to remote work. Use Nodegrid’s Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) platform to secure your edge network and distributed users. SASE keeps your enterprise running by offering users security and networking via the cloud. At the same time, you can manage these services through a unified interface using Nodegrid

  • Deliver secure edge networking via the cloud
  • Give your main network less traffic and more speed
  • Get custom-fit security thanks to Nodegrid’s open architecture

Nodegrid serves as a strong yet flexible foundation for your SASE platform. Nodegrid accomplishes two remarkable things: it serves as an open platform that allows your enterprise to choose the SSE solutions of preference (Palo Alto, Netskope, or others), meaning you don’t get stuck using only specific solutions; Nodegrid also serves as the access portion that lets you manage all the components of your SASE architecture.

Nodegrid SD-WAN: The ideal access on-ramp to your SASE solutions

The Nodegrid SD-WAN platform gives you the freedom to create a powerful and customized access on-ramp to all the top secure access service edge (SASE) providers. With ZPE Cloud’s SD-WAN app, you get seamless integrations with your choice of third-party SASE solutions as well as automation tools, applications, and more. Or you can use Nodegrid’s vendor-neutral hardware to host other SD-WAN solutions, including Palo Alto Networks’ Prisma SD-WAN.


Protect your network with leading security providers

Nodegrid allows you to deploy security solutions of your choice, including those from leading security vendors like Palo Alto Networks, DarkTrace, Fortinet, and Netgate. In this way, Nodegrid allows you to achieve the perfect SASE architecture for your business by leveraging your choice of security solutions.
