Security Service Edge Forum To Help Secure The Modern Workplace


Axis Security has launched the Security Service Edge (SSE) Forum to explore the value of security service edge platforms for securing the modern workplace. The SSE Forum brings together CIOs, CISOs, Architects, and IT operators to share strategy, discuss challenges, uncover platform requirements, and discuss best practices related to adopting the SSE framework.

The SSE Forum was developed in collaboration with IT leaders from the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. who represent a cross section of industries, including beverage, travel, technology, financial services, automotive, manufacturing, hospitality, state, and local government.

Security Service Edge platforms are integrated, cloud-delivered security services that broker secure connections between authorized users and business resources by using identity and policy. This allows employees to work from anywhere, third-parties to safely access data, and legacy infrastructure to be modernized by the cloud.

SSE architectures are the modern alternative to legacy hub and spoke network architectures, firewalls, and appliance-based infrastructure. SSE extends secure connectivity out to the user’s location, and device, through cloud-delivered services – without connecting users to the corporate network, exposing applications or IT infrastructure to the internet, or requiring complex network segmentation.
