When companies move toward digital transformation, the technology solves many of the pressure points that DevOps teams face. Furthermore, the security advantages are given to increase efficiency while also unifying the security stack.
Fremont, CA: As part of their digital transformation initiatives, many businesses are implementing secure access service edge (SASE) solutions. In brief, SASE combines SD-WAN and security stacks to provide stable networking and enhanced WAN efficiency, making it an obvious option for cloud-enabled businesses undergoing digital transformation. Other advantages of SASE, however, may be of particular interest to DevOps teams. Here are four ways how SASE can drive the productivity of DevOps teams.
Minimize Collaboration Challenges
SASE alleviates the difficulties that come with working in a community. SASE was designed with WAN optimization and cybersecurity in mind. DevOps teams today must collaborate despite being geographically isolated, and they must have consistent, stable connectivity.
With integrated load balancing and failover capabilities, SASE enhances the entire system capacity. DevOps teams can't afford to lose contact, mainly when releasing new software iterations or fixing bugs.
Better Security Built In
With native cybersecurity capabilities, SASE aids in the protection of DevOps ventures. SASE incorporates several security technologies directly into the network stack when correctly implemented.
Removes DevSecOps Burdens
SASE secures internal applications as well as communications with them, easing the pressure on DevSecOps team members. Zero-trust network access (ZTNA) and software-defined perimeter (SDP), technologies that help keep all communications between an endpoint and an application safe, are used to further secure applications that operate over SASE/SD-WANs.
SASE adoption for DevOps teams is starting to make sense. When companies move toward digital transformation, the technology solves many of the pressure points that DevOps teams face. Furthermore, the security advantages are given to increase efficiency while also unifying the security stack.
