Zero Trust (ZT) seems to be in the headlines in every industry publication these days, highlighted as a security strategy that organizations need to embrace to stay protected in an increasingly dangerous threat environment. Many large organizations, with sizable IT budgets and teams, have begun their Zero Trust journeys, but overall market adoption has been slowed by the complexity and cost of the currently available solutions.
Some vendors have introduced Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) solutions that attempt to integrate multiple security products into a single platform, but the results have been mixed. The reality is that most of these platforms are created by taking legacy products and “stitching” them together. While they do represent an improvement versus completely siloed products, they typically do not significantly move the needle in two critical areas – cost and complexity.
Research from leading analyst firms like Gartner and Forrester continually highlight the challenges that organizations face in staffing their cybersecurity teams. There is not enough cybersecurity talent available to meet demand, and when the tools that cyber teams need to use are overly complex – and expensive – the situation is only exacerbated.
The ZTEdge SASE Security Platform is developed by Ericom Software, a company whose security and access solutions support thousands of companies around the globe. ZTEdge is a completely new cloud-first platform, unlike other offerings that have stitched together older technologies. This clean-slate approach allowed us to innovate and gave us the freedom to address the complexity and cost issues that other platforms have not been able to overcome.
