Our Platform

SASE Connect

Value proposition

The world of Telecommunications is in constant change: new global circumstances have entailed a shift of perspective in multiple aspects of our lives, and the workplace is no exception.

The technological transformation has already begun and new socio-political scenarios have dramatically accelerated its importance; the almost immediate transition to remote work environments will heavily affect the new normal.

Enterprises are moving towards SaaS models to achieve greater agility: they are moving applications to the cloud to remain competitive and expand their perimeters with both distributed offices and remote working from home.

Employees’ increased demand to access data from anywhere leads to the need of protection against an ever-evolving set of security vulnerabilities.

IT Units must support this transformation by providing users with the same application experience regardless of their location while ensuring the security of networks, applications and data.
