"What I have noticed is that people sometimes think of SASE as a point solution. They think buying this XYZ software will achieve their SASE goals," Thapliyal says. "But most of the time, it is not correct. SASE is really a journey and also an architecture which has multiple layers and building blocks, and these blocks have to work seamlessly across to be able to provide this unique SASE experience."

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Thapliyal also discusses:

  • How the SASE conversation has evolved in the past two years;
  • The common misconceptions about SASE;
  • Recommendations on how to implement SASE.

Thapliyal is the business development manager at Cisco Meraki. He has been with Cisco for 10 years and has 18 years of experience across presales, consulting and sales.
