Meme of the Week!


SASE, is it right for you?

Securing data in a virtualized environment is different from what was required with legacy solutions. SASE solutions are designed for virtualized connections.

Legacy security products were not built to protect today’s highly virtualized environments and they can be expensive, difficult to configure, and consume too much time and resources.

SASE solutions are easy-to-use software that protects the applications on your network while providing visibility into traffic patterns across physical as well as cloud networks – all without impacting performance or business operations of your organization.

Check out Lightyear's blog on SASE, covering all the pros & cons and decide if SASE is right for your business. Find out how Lightyear can help transform your business IT today! Take Me There!
