"The SASE model moves essential security functions — such as web gateway firewalls, zero-trust capabilities, data loss prevention and secure network connectivity — all to the cloud," Schnabel wrote in a Sept. 19 opinion piece for C4ISRNET.

"Then, federal employees have direct access to the cloud, while security is pushed as close to the user/data/device as possible.

He added that DoD plans to start implementing a zero-trust system by the end of this year.
