Bitglass users in the Middle East and Africa will experience even faster performance, benefiting from our unique four tier SASE architecture on the public cloud, delivering performance, uptime and scalability.  While competing SASE offerings are built on inelastic appliances, Bitglass leverages the public cloud to deliver security and performance via our PolyScale architecture.   

Tests show significant performance boosts via the Bitglass SASE fabric, compared to direct access to SaaS apps such as  Office 365. 

"Our four tier SASE fabric comprising Global Core Data Centers, Local Edge Data Centers, CDN caches, and SmartEdge endpoint agents uniquely combines security and performance across the globe," said Raif Mehmet, Area Vice President EMEA, Bitglass.
