Lookout, Inc., a provider of endpoint-to-cloud security, announced the integration of its security service edge (SSE) platform with the HPE Aruba EdgeConnect Enterprise SD-WAN platform. Lookout SSE with Aruba EdgeConnect offers customers a best-in-class secure access service edge (SASE) architecture that combines network security with an integrated security stack to deliver secure web gateway, cloud access security broker, zero trust network access, and data loss protection.
“SASE is a key enabler of modern digital business transformation, including work from anywhere and the adoption of edge computing and cloud-delivered applications,” according to Gartner®. It improves transparency, agility, resilience, and security. SASE also simplifies the delivery and operation of critical network and security services, primarily through a cloud-based model. Over the next few years, SASE expects to reduce the number of vendors required for secure access to one or two.” Furthermore, according to a recent Gartner survey, 75% of organizations plan to pursue security vendor consolidation in 2022, up from 29% in 2020.
“Aruba is excited to add Lookout to the Aruba EdgeConnect partner ecosystem,” said Fraser Street, Aruba WAN Technical Alliances lead. “This best-of-breed integration combines Aruba’s leading SD-WAN with Lookout SSE into a unified SASE architecture so that our enterprise customers can secure their employees from the endpoint to cloud.”
“As organizations seek to accelerate growth through the use of cloud services, the traditional enterprise security perimeter has evolved into a fluid, constantly moving edge. Users now interface with enterprise apps, data, and other users from wherever they may be, effectively moving the perimeter edge to their current location,” said Sundaram Lakshmanan, chief technology officer of SASE products, Lookout. “Integrating our SSE capabilities with Aruba SD-WAN simplifies management controls and provides a rich policy framework to keep sensitive data protected without hindering productivity.”
