What Is Security Service Edge (SSE)?

January 23, 2024

Security Service Edge (SSE) is a comprehensive set of cloud-based security tools and features designed to safeguard access to software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions and internal company applications.

It integrates and delivers vital security functions like Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), Firewall-as-a-service (FWaaS), Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), and Data Loss Prevention from the cloud.

SSE significantly enhances security and improves user experience in distributed networks and cloud environments. Organizations with a remote workforce or those increasingly reliant on cloud-based operations are the primary adopters of SSE.
