SASE (Secure Access Service Edge) is a networking technology that was first coined by Gartner in 2019. SASE adoption is on the rise and according to a 2020 report from Gartner, it is projected that the SASE market will grow from $4.5 billion in 2020 to $10.9 billion by 2024. If you've never heard SASE or maybe you really don't know what it is, this session is for you.

NetWitness experts, Ben Smith, Field CTO and Arthur Fontaine, Product and Solution Marketer will have a conversation about SASE and discuss:

- What SASE is and is it really an easy button?
- Considerations for legacy technology
- What gaps are present for security solutions created pre-SASE?

We also encourage questions from the audience. If there is something you want to know about SASE, please register and ask us.
