The convergence of network and security functions is creating quite a stir. As consolidation continues across the SD-WAN landscape and SASE momentum picks up steam, there is no shortage of enthusiasm for what lay ahead.

Netskope and the recently acquired Silver Peak, announced a new integration between the Silver Peak (News - Alert) Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN edge platform and Netskope Security Cloud Services powered by the NewEdge network.

"We continue to partner with best-of-breed cloud-delivered security providers and we are pleased to formalize our partnership with Netskope today. Our joint WAN edge solution will enable enterprises to transform how they secure applications, users and IT infrastructure by delivering consistent network and security policy enforcement without compromise, which is especially critical as we witness an unprecedented expansion in remote workers," said Fraser Street, head of WAN technical alliances at Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company.

The cloud security integration makes it the first leveraging the newly unveiled Silver Peak Service Orchestration capabilities. Enterprises taking full advantage will be able to utilize intelligence to identify and steer cloud application traffic. Application traffic is shuffled to the closest NewEdge data center, and is then verified via the Netskope cloud security stack.

Street continued, "Netskope's industry momentum and recognition for its CASB leadership, zero trust network access, next-gen secure web gateway, and other SASE building blocks, make them an ideal partner for the Silver Peak EdgeConnect SD-WAN edge platform."

For the enterprise, SASE architecture starts with the right partners.
