Seemingly from nowhere, the concept of Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) has gone from a fairly obscure term – first coined by Gartner in late 2019 - to a philosophy dominating the conversation in 2021. Undoubtedly accelerated by the huge shifts brought on by the 2020 global lockdown, SASE has caught the attention of professionals working across the IT, network and security landscape as they prepare their post-pandemic strategies.

This report draws upon the latest research from Gartner, as well as original and previously unpublished data from an extensive January 2021 study on the subject. This research surveyed 750 professionals working across five geographic markets (USA,UK, Australia, Germany and Japan) to better understand their perspectives and experiences with SASE.

Key Statistics Include:

  • 56% have begun adopting a zero trust posture when determining access to company resources
  • 51% of respondants say over half of core work applications/services are in the cloud
  • Only 33% of IT leaders surveyed could not confidently describe what “SASE” is
  • Only 27% of organizations currently embrace SASE in over half of the technology stack
  • Only 21% stated security teams were responsible for their SASE strategy
