Today, remote and hybrid work models have become status quo. The days of employees commuting to work to access platforms and applications needed to be productive are long gone. Application workloads have nearly all migrated to the cloud, forcing many organizations to acknowledge that today's work environment is soundly embedded in the cloud.
The distributed workforces of today continue to need anywhere, anytime access to the digital applications and assets that allow them to conduct work. Still, while network and security models were sufficient to cater to this need, a next-generation architecture is needed to ensure it today.

But where should organizations just getting acquainted with SASE start their journey?
