  • SASE is a replacement for SD-WAN
  • SASE is cloud-hosted security with basic SD-WAN functionality added
  • SASE and SD-WAN are different networking technologies

However, if you carefully read Gartner’s initial report, “The Future of Network Security is in the Cloud,” that introduced the term SASE (secure access service edge), you’ll see that it’s not “either” SASE or SD-WAN. Rather, SD-WAN is a foundational component and an integral part of a SASE architecture.[1]
