Executive lunch & learn event explores next-generation Aruba Security Service Edge (SSE)

Recently, Ampito Group hosted a lunch and learn event discussing next-generation Security Service Edge (SSE). The event brought together industry experts, thought leaders, and professionals to discuss the future of network security and its impact on enterprises.

Jaye Tillson, Field CTO of Hewlett Packard Enterprise, spoke about HPE Aruba’s unique zero trust network solution, which plays a pivotal role in fortifying network security amidst evolving cybersecurity challenges.

SSE represents a significant paradigm shift from traditional VPN technology, which has been in use for nearly three decades. As remote and hybrid work has continued to be the norm for many firms, the limitations of VPNs in providing robust security, agility, and flexibility have become apparent.

The key benefits of SSE highlighted included:

  • Improved Security: SSE brings security closer to the user, offering a flexible approach to connectivity beyond enterprise boundaries. Hosted in the cloud, SSE ensures swift updates to address emerging security threats, while policy changes are automatically propagated to remote users, ensuring a consistent security posture.
  • Simplified Operations: By consolidating multiple security services into a unified platform, SSE eliminates redundancies and enhances operational efficiency. It provides greater visibility into security incidents from a central location, streamlining operations and reducing costs.
  • Secure Access: SSE facilitates secure access to applications from anywhere, on any device, based on least-privilege access principles. Moreover, it safeguards employees from malicious web traffic and ensures the protection of corporate sensitive data. When integrated with SD-WAN, SSE enables secure connectivity for branch office employees.

Manny Pinon, Founder of Ampito Group led a discussion on the journey to Zero Trust architecture.

Ampito remains at the forefront of technology advancements, empowering organizations to embrace secure, agile, and efficient networking solutions. Ampito Group extends its heartfelt thanks to all attendees for their active participation and valuable contributions. Stay tuned for future events as Ampito continues to drive innovation and thought leadership in the realm of cybersecurity.
