SSE solution maximises security and performance for telcos

19 December 2022

Orange Business Services, Orange Cyberdefense, and Netskope have joined forces to deliver a new Security Service Edge (SSE) solution embedded into the Orange Telco Cloud Platform. The enhanced solution delivers optimal performance with maximised security, meaning enterprises will no longer need to find a compromise between the two.

The new SSE solution addresses the security and networking challenges presented by mobile computing, cloud, and hybrid work environments; however, enterprises must incorporate it into their overarching connectivity strategies in order to fully realise the benefits of Secure Access Service Edge (SASE).

The partnership will leverage Orange Cyberdefense’s security expertise and Netskope’s global security private cloud footprint and SSE leadership, enabling Orange Business Services to deliver consistent internet security on and off network. This will help protect enterprise customers from data loss and the growing volume of threats across cloud, web and private applications, with the full attributes of a cloud-native platform.

The SSE solution will reduce complexity for enterprises by providing continuously updated cloud security via the Orange Business Services Telco Cloud Platform. The software-defined approach optimised for telco workloads enables greater agility and cost reduction. The hybrid architecture embeds Netskope’s points-of-presence (POPs) within the Orange network, strengthening the value proposition by delivering the benefits of the Orange network, including speed and agility, while enabling customers to tap into the power of Netskope Intelligent SSE. This provides granular visibility and real-time data and threat protection for cloud services, websites, and private apps accessed from anywhere, on any device.
