Faster doesn’t mean less secure.
SASE, Secure Access Service Edge, was built to provide low-latency, secure connections to corporate resources.
The SASE solution was just overhauled, updating speeds and security with Project Autobahn.
Now, with new updates to the security platform, Project Autobahn implemented three primary goals:
- Remove speed bottlenecks to achieve maximal throughput
- Ensure the scalability and stability of the architecture as throughput multiplies
- Strengthen security through data packet processing and extendibility improvements
The SASE backbone technology is a critical component, serving to create a secure tunnel between the user’s device and the SGN (Secure Global Network) while providing three critical functions: authentication, encryption, and routing. With massive amounts of data being protected, minimizing latency and maximizing throughput are imperative.
The SGN engineering team tested and pushed limits to improve funtionality and increase speeds. Of seven popular cryptographic libraries for the encryption/decryption process, there is a 40% speed difference between the slowest and fastest encryption functions; the team chose the fastest. Routing capabilities and speeds were increased by switching to a user-space memory, requiring fewer overall packet copies. This reduces cost and increases speed. The solution was then tested for scale to ensure that more users connecting retains the same speed and functionality.
