Lumen Technologies drives next-gen technology with SASE

Chris Smith and Shawn Draper explain how Lumen Technologies is targeting Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), apps development and combating DDoS threats

Lumen Technologies is a global company of approximately 38,000 professionals, dedicated to empowering businesses. 

Driven by the challenges and opportunities of the 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR), it is helping to change how people interact and how companies acquire, analyse and act on data with flexible, intelligent, secure and collaborative solutions built for the next generation of business.

The Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) framework represents the convergence of several established technologies which aim to merge comprehensive SD-WAN capabilities and network security functions into a unified approach – one that will ultimately be better suited, in a 4IR era, to meet the needs of enterprise data workloads and applications. 

Lumen positions itself as ‘partner inclusive’, so multiple partners can be added quickly to its platform. Currently it is working with VMWare, Fortnet, Versa, and Palo Alto Networks is set to come on board later in the year. 

Lumen has been working to advance sustainability goals for many years and is focused on creating lasting value for all customers and stakeholders.
