Versa Security Lab recently analyzed couple of malware samples which arrives on a computer through phishing emails containing documents with embedded link which eventually leads to the download of the malware. Some of these may arrive through websites pretending to provide information on the recent Corona virus outbreak. The past few months have seen several malicious webservers and domains being set up, purportedly serving information on the Covid-19 virus outbreak. Most of these sites are hosts to ransomware and other malware types. In this blog we are going to look at one sample which encrypts files contents and updates the…

Part 2 of a 3 part series (read part 1 and part 3) Now, my journey. I requested a Versa Cloud Services Gateway appliance, specifically the CSG750-WLA (that’s our 750 series appliance with an integrated Wi-Fi AP (Access Point) and an integrated cellular modem for LTE). I submitted a request to our Versa Titan operations team [sent an internal PO] to create my organization and provide me with licenses for 4 sites – each license was the Versa Titan CSG750-Advanced Security software license. The Advanced security license provides routing, SD-WAN, NGFW, URL Filtering, AV and NG-IPS [for those who are…

Part 1 of a 3 part series (read part 2 and part 3) Throughout my entire career of 20+ years I predominately have been a work-from-home employee through various roles I have held. As part of #WFH the need for secure and either on-demand or constant connectivity to corporate resources is a hard requirement in order to do my job effectively. Over the last 20+ years how, where and what I need access to have changed quite dramatically. In summary a lot of these resources are now off-net [ e.g. email, SharePoint, Skype, CRM, PRM, collaboration and communication applications [conferencing…

Fiserv is the biggest financial company you may never have heard of. Every non-cash financial transaction that you conduct touches their network. Security is paramount for you—the consumer; for Fiserv’s clients—financial institutions, point-of-sale and payment industries in more than 100 countries; and for Fiserv’s global corporate network. Look at the staggering numbers on the right! If a company this size can successfully deploy a Secure SD-WAN, then the early adopter phase must be long over. It is. Mainstream companies like Fiserv are now deploying SD-WAN technology to manage—or survive—this era of rapid digital transformation. Which is not necessarily super-disruptive: SD-WAN…

The Wave of Reality

CMO, Versa Networks
February 14, 2020

After a successful exit with one of the top SD-WAN companies some have asked why I joined Versa Networks. History has shown us that industry disruptions often occur in waves.  The first SD-WAN wave of infancy was made up of a number of pure-play startups (including Versa) who entered and helped form the market. The second wave could be referred to as the wave of insanity. The market exploded to nearly 80 vendors many of which were jumping in to “pivot” some or all of their business to SD-WAN. There were quite a few others who simply put an SD-WAN…

Best Practices for the Enterprise (Part 3) Multi-tiered Architecture

November 6, 2019

Welcome to the Third installment of the Enterprise Best Practices Blog. My name is Neil Danilowicz, Principal Architect for Versa Networks. This week we will focus on why the Enterprise should require a secure multi-tiered architecture for their SD-WAN solution.So why is a secure multi-tiered architecture a requirement for Enterprise deployment of SD-WAN? Historically, Enterprises would contract with a service provider to purchase private circuits (MPLS, PIP, or dedicated TDM circuits) to provide secure private connectivity between their branches and data centers. If an Enterprise required access to the Internet or remote networks, demilitarized zones (DMZs) were established to vet…
