By: Patrick GilbreathWW VP & GM SASE Sales, HPE Aruba Networking\nEven as the economy shows signs of slowing in the second half of 2023, Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) adoption among organizations continues to rise. The worldwide SASE market topped\u00a0$6 billion\u00a0in 2022, representing robust 34 percent total revenue growth year-over-year, according to figures from Dell\u2019Oro Group. The firm reported that it marked the third year in a row when year-over-year growth in SASE revenue surpassed 30 percent.\nSASE has continued its surge amid the critical need for many businesses to address the demand for improved application performance and increased network security as remote users grow and enterprises migrate applications to the cloud. SASE can replace VPNs with remote access systems based on zero trust principles, which are more challenging for attackers to exploit. Furthermore, single-vendor SASE solutions are growing faster due to greater enterprise preference for one-stop-shop versus multi-vendor best-of-breed solutions.\nThis is where HPE Aruba Networking unified SASE comes in, combining industry-leading SD-WAN and award-winning SSE into a single-vendor solution that your customers can start implementing quickly and easily. HPE Aruba Networking unified SASE lets organizations set the pace and add extra options as their business needs change.\n\u00a0The Benefits of a Single-Source SASE Solution\nWith networking and security overlapping more, a unified SASE solution from a single vendor offers organizations the many benefits of SASE while making adoption and deployment simpler and more cost-effective. It does this by:\n\nUnifying the security posture: Reduce the attack surface and improve threat detection and response times by applying universal security policies and centralized access controls across all traffic and locations.\nReducing complexity: Having a single-vendor SASE not only brings consolidation but also unifies networking and security functions by providing a centralized management system for visibility, configuration, monitoring, and troubleshooting.\nOptimizing User and Admin Experience: Guarantee secure, high-performance, low-latency connectivity for users to apps by auto-routing traffic via the fastest access paths and avoiding backhauling traffic to the data center.\nIncreasing scalability: Organizations can quickly adapt to changing business needs and support digital transformation initiatives such as hybrid work, cloud migration, IoT, and OT initiatives.\n\nHPE Aruba Networking includes flexible licensing to suit your customers' budgets and needs, with the freedom to adapt over time.
