Leading fiber internet service provider Converge ICT Solutions Inc., awarded in the Pacific Telecommunications Council Awards 2022 as the Outstanding Wireline and/or Wireless Company, is the country’s first telecommunications company to offer the latest in network and security transformation with its Secure Access Service Edge or SASE-based products as a value-added service to its Converge Enterprise connectivity portfolio.
What is SASE?
SASE is the convergence of wide area networking (WAN) and network security services into a single, cloud-delivered service model. Enabling enterprises to adopt a SASE architecture solves the challenge of delivering consistent and secure access no matter where users and applications are located.
“Work is an activity, not a place. Our new product offerings complement enterprises’ shift to working from anywhere using a cloud service without compromising their security posture. Clients can be working from either their home or office, while their applications can be housed in either a data center, on the internet, or in the cloud. Simplifying operations and maintenance has always been our guarantee to all our customers.” Gilbert T. Virtucio, Converge’s Head of Product Management and Network Solutions, stated.

Aside from providing simplicity in management and maintenance, SASE gives enterprises the following benefits:
- Flexibility – SASE, being delivered via a cloud-based infrastructure, will allow users to change where they’re working from as well as where their applications are housed without compromising their security posture.
- Reduced Complexity – SASE can deliver different security functions as a service. These security functions are FWaaS (Firewall as a Service), CASB (Cloud Access Security Broker), Secure Web Gateway, and Secure WAN (Wide Area Network). All these security services can be implemented and managed on a single platform which provides customers with full access control.
- Cost Effectiveness – SASE provides unparalleled accessibility for organizations. With its security function services being available and managed on a single platform, it is a stark contrast from the usual buying, implementing, and managing of multiple security point products, each with their own separate management platforms.
- Security – Employing the Zero Trust philosophy, which assumes that a system can have attackers both within and outside its network, helps SASE reduce the risk of a breach and significantly improves network security threat prevention and data protection for an organization.
“We’re always looking to come up with services that will truly benefit our customers. As we continue to move forward, we want to make sure that we are taking advantage of the latest in network technology to help our customers grow.” Converge Chief Operations Officer Jesus C. Romero said. “With SASE, enterprises can work from anywhere while keeping their infrastructure secure. When developing our products, we always keep simplicity, cost effectiveness, and security in mind.”
As more businesses pivot and begin their digital transformation, Converge will continue to empower all their endeavors. With its new offering in SASE, Converge will deliver not just fiber- fast speeds but adaptable availability and stronger internet security as well.
