Cradlepoint and Palo Alto Networks technology partnership accelerates Secure Access Service Edge to the Wireless WAN Edge

Devang Bhatt

Integrated solution makes it easier to deploy SASE across wireless networks for fixed and temporary sites, vehicles, and IoT 

Since Gartner’s introduction of Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) in 2019, there has been a lot of debate whether SASE is real or just another marketing buzzword. Gartner’s SASE model unifies networking and security with the goal of making it easier for organizations to be agile and deploy applications and services in the cloud which can be managed securely and reliably. 

It turns out Gartner’s model is no hype; by 2024, 40% of enterprises will have explicit strategies to adopt SASE.  

With more and more apps shifting from corporate data centers to the cloud, combined with the highly distributed workforce, cybersecurity threats are now on the rise. As a result, SASE has become top of mind for businesses. The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the need for organizations to nimbly adapt to “work from anywhere” scenarios. But this requires reliable connectivity as well as the same type of robust security that employees would have access to at the office.    

Extending the security perimeter from corporate HQ to remote sites or vehicles whenever and wherever has been a critical challenge, until now. The collaboration between Palo Alto Networks and Cradlepoint complements the SASE model with security and networking: 

        – An integrated solution between Cradlepoint NetCloud Service and Palo Alto Networks Prisma Access, their            cloud-delivered security service.  

        – Cradlepoint LTE and 5G adapters with Palo Alto Networks Prisma SD-WAN provides flexible options for                    hybrid WAN and a pathway to 5G.   

This joint solution makes it easier for organizations to deploy Secure Access Service Edge to the Wireless WAN edge whether fixed or temporary locations, mobile networks for mission-critical First responders, or IoT deployments with high-value assets such as surveillance cameras, kiosks, and digital signage. I’m very excited to onboard Palo Alto Networks to our Technology Alliance Program and look forward to addressing the market need with our mutual partners.

Guest Post Written By Webroot 1949, 1971, 1979, 1981, 1983 and 1991. Yes, these are numbers. You more than likely even recognize them as years. However, without context you wouldn’t immediately recognize them as years in which Sicily’s Mount Etna experienced major eruptions. Data matters, but only if it’s paired with enough context to create meaning. […]
