SASE

Secure Access Service Edge, Secure Service Edge and Security Integration

SDWAN and SASE Solutions SASE framework

Available as part of your OMNIA solution, or as a stand-alone module

Many global organisations have over 40 different security products and solutions to manage and maintain – Our SASE and SD-WAN security solutions allow you to strengthen your network and worker protection, consolidate solutions and simplify management.

Are you unsure about the terms SD-WAN, SASE and SSE?

Despite current myths purporting that SASE has in some way ‘replaced’ SD-WAN the facts are that an SD-WAN network & SSE security framework combined to form a SASE solution, is the ultimate secure edge network framework

SSE (Secure service edge) unifies all security services, including Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), Secure Web Gateway (SWG),  and Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB),  to secure Internet access,  access to cloud hosted services, and access to private applications, but does not provide intelligent traffic routing.
SASE (Secure Access Service Edge) is a framework that combines SD-WAN (Access) with security services (Secure Service Edge) to offer a complete network and security solution.
OMNIA’S SASE integration presents a transformative approach to network security and connectivity. Traditionally, organizations have relied on disparate security solutions, such as firewalls, VPNs, and secure web gateways, to safeguard their networks. However, as digital transformation accelerates and the perimeter of the network becomes increasingly porous due to cloud adoption and remote work, a more integrated and holistic approach to security is needed.

OMNIA’s SASE consolidates networking and security capabilities into a unified cloud-native platform, hosted within purpose-built in-country OMNIA gateways, delivering comprehensive protection and connectivity while ensuring data sovereignty. This enables organizations to secure access to applications and data regardless of the user’s location or device.

Why is SASE needed for successful digital transformation?

The need for SASE stems from the evolving nature of cyber threats and the changing dynamics of modern business operations. Here are several key reasons why SASE is indispensable in today’s digital landscape:
Cloud Adoption: With the migration of applications and data to the cloud, traditional perimeter-based security models are no longer sufficient. SASE provides secure and optimized access to cloud resources, ensuring consistent protection regardless of the user’s location or the application’s hosting environment.

Remote Workforce: The rise of remote work has blurred the boundaries of the corporate network, making traditional security architectures obsolete. SASE enables organizations to extend security policies and enforcement to remote users, ensuring that they can access corporate resources securely from anywhere

Mobile Workforce: In an increasingly mobile world, employees expect seamless and secure access to corporate resources from their mobile devices. SASE delivers unified security policies across all endpoints, whether they are corporate-owned or BYOD (bring your own device), ensuring consistent protection against cyber threats.

Scalability and Flexibility: Traditional security appliances are often rigid and difficult to scale, especially in dynamic environments. SASE offers scalability and flexibility through cloud-native architecture, allowing organizations to adapt quickly to changing business requirements without compromising security.

Reduced Complexity and Cost: By consolidating networking and security functions into a single cloud-based platform, SASE simplifies management and reduces operational overhead. Organizations can eliminate the need for multiple point solutions, resulting in cost savings and improved efficiency

Why Check Point was chosen to protect OMNIA customers globally – “You Deserve The Best Security”

Miercom independant report into security vendors

Check Point is the only security vendor with a near-perfect 99.8% block rate for malware, as well as a 100% phishing and malicious URL prevention rate. The nearest competitor scored 84% while one of the biggest brand names in security managed a measly 48% block rate. Download the independent report and see for yourself.

The above success ratios were also almost identically achieved in 2023 in comparative testing by one of the world’s largest ISPs seeking an innovative SASE solution for their national infrastructure and retail environment. The OMNIA SASE solution scored an overall 98% efficacy compared with just over 70% scored by the next vendor.

Proven security: Let Check Point and OMNIA protect your business too!

Unlike other solutions that only detect threats, Check Point prevents threats. Available as an on-premise option, running on our SD-WAN appliance, or as an OMNIA Cloud SASE gateway solution, SDWAN Solutions and Check Point integration provides organizations of all sizes with integrated, advanced threat prevention, reducing complexity and lowering the total cost of ownership.

Software development practices and Check Point security certifications

Check Point: “Information security starts at the design stage and is embedded in the lifecycle of systems, products and services. This is why follow “security by design” principles at all times at the design and architecture level, and conduct design and other reviews based on the STRIDE method. We implement a change management program regarding our products and services including maintaining development and testing environments separately from production.

We evaluate and track vulnerabilities of open source and third party libraries used in our products and services, including by performing static code analysis and manual code review where we deem required after risk analysis. Threat researchers, red teams and designated service providers carry out security verifications, such as penetration testing (PT) and multiple analysis tools”

Most SD-WAN software offers a Stateful packet firewall as standard, protecting networks and data but offering no advanced protection like Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), directory based policies, Application level security and blacklisting / whitelisting. Some vendors offer a combined security and SD-WAN product, and just like SD-WAN technology, these security options differ greatly between vendors. The lines between network and security start to blur as you add in the requirement to support remote user access and access to Cloud hosted applications. These are your options:

Centralised Firewall

A centralised firewall requires all traffic to be backhauled to a central location, typically a Data centre, which is not ideal to access Cloud hosted applications and dilutes the SD-WAN benefit of being able to access applications and the Internet, directly from each location on your network.

Edge Security

A single device at every site, such as our VENA and VECTA appliances, supplies both SD-WAN and Security functionality. Both the SD-WAN and security vendor technologies can be replaced independently without changing the hardware, eliminating vendor tie-in and ensuring best of breed options for network and security.

Cloud-based Security

SD-WAN software integrates seamlessly with third party Cloud security providers, sending all necessary traffic directly to a Cloud hosted security platform, again allowing you to select best in class preferred providers in a simple, easy to manage network and security solution.

Single Vendor

Historic security vendors have bolted on SD-WAN functionality and historic SD-WAN vendors have done the same with the security function. In some cases, one funtion performs far better than the bolt-on, and users are tied to a single provider solution, often limiting potential solution benefits.
