This week, Microsoft announced a new Security Service Edge (SSE) offering as part of their expanded Microsoft Entra family of products. Specifically, they announced the preview of two services:

  • Their Secure Web Gateway (SWG), Microsoft Entra Internet Access
  • Their Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) offering, Microsoft Entra Private Access
