Versa SASE Named 2020 New Product of the Year in BIG Award for Business Annual Awards Program
Versa SASE Recognized for Comprehensive Integration of Networking, SD-WAN, Security, Routing, Secure Access, and Analytics for Enterprises, SMBs and Service Providers
San Jose, Calif., November 10, 2020
Versa Networks, the leader in SASE and Secure SD-WAN, today announced Versa SASE has received the Business Intelligence Group’s BIG Award for Business and was named the 2020 New Product of Year Award winner in the Enterprise Category. The annual awards program rewards companies, products and people that are leading their respective industries.
Versa SASE is uniquely differentiated in the ability to deliver comprehensive integrated SASE services both on-premises and via the cloud using the same operating system within a single software stack, VOS™ (Versa Operating System), based on the Versa Single-Pass Parallel Processing architecture. Due to the genuine multi-tenant capabilities, VOS™ delivers these services via the cloud taking advantage of cloud economies of scale while servicing hundreds of thousands of tenants simultaneously. Versa SASE is also uniquely available as a private cloud service wherein enterprises can operate, manage and host their own private Versa Cloud Gateways wherever they choose.
“We are so proud to reward Versa Networks for its outstanding 2020 achievements,” said Maria Jimenez, chief nomination officer of the Business Intelligence Group. “This year’s group of winners is clearly leading by example in the global business community.”
Versa SASE enables consistent security policies, network policies, business policies, and application policies seamlessly between on-premises and cloud services. The common integrated VOS™ software stack managed by a single management interface and tool creates a ubiquitous experience regardless from where IT decides to provide SASE services (on-premises, cloud, or both).
“Versa SASE has seen significant traction and recognition in 2020, and it’s particularly rewarding to be acknowledged by the BIG Award for Business program’s panel of business executive judges as the new product of the year for SASE,” said Michael Wood, Versa Chief Marketing Officer for Versa Networks. “This award is additional validation that Versa SASE continues to be the only SASE solution combining a fully integrated robust set of SASE services within one operating system software stack using a single-pass parallel processing architecture and delivered via the cloud, on-premises, or as blended combination of both.”
Versa SASE runs on VOS™, which is designed with the Versa Single-Pass Parallel Processing architecture that combines full-featured SD-WAN, extensible networking, complete integrated security, advanced scalable routing, genuine multi-tenancy, and sophisticated analytics into one software image. This integration and design methodology dramatically decreases latency, significantly improves performance, and mitigates security vulnerabilities which other solutions introduce by running multiple software stacks, service chains, or appliances.
