San Jose, Calif., March 24, 2021
Versa Networks, the leader in SASE, today announced that it has published the book SASE For Dummies.
Readers will learn about the business and technical background of SASE (Secure Access Service Edge), including best practices, real-world customer deployments, and the benefits that come with a SASE-enabled organization. A complimentary copy of the book SASE For Dummies is available beginning today at https://versa-networks.com/resources/ebooks/sase-for-dummies/.
SASE brings pervasive, cloud-native, and trustworthy networking and security to the modern enterprise. Its capabilities extend far beyond traditional networking and security architectures by incorporating capabilities such as identity, trust, and context regardless of the connection, user, device, or application. SASE also enables policies to be delivered pervasively, consistently, and ubiquitously, so organizations can meet security, networking, application, user, and business requirements.
SASE For Dummies was written by Versa Co-founders Kumar Mehta and Apurva Mehta who have more than 75 years of combined experience in the security and networking industry. Kumar Mehta is a product visionary who has led the development of multiple blockbuster networking and security products. Apurva Mehta is an engineering luminary who has developed industry-leading products in networking, security, and packet-core that have created billion-dollar revenue streams.
“SASE is the fastest growing category in networking and security and Versa is the clear leader and fastest growing SASE vendor,” said Michael Wood, Chief Marketing Officer for Versa Networks. “Versa Co-founders Kumar and Apurva are pioneers in networking and security and have been architecting and designing the requirements, services, and capabilities of SASE long before the industry term was coined. This is an opportunity for readers to learn from their extensive industry experience, expertise, and best practices in the new book SASE For Dummies.”
SASE For Dummies covers everything organizations need to know about SASE. Readers will discover what SASE includes, how enterprises and organizations benefit, how SASE implements security, how to best deploy it, and how to take advantage of its best features. The book details how SASE protects the network perimeter, optimizes security and performance, decreases cost and complexity, delivers a consistent experience, and centralizes management and control.

Unlike competing solutions, Versa SASE was built from the ground up to deliver a tightly integrated SASE solution within a single software stack managed via a single interface, eliminating service chaining, cascading, and virtual interconnect between services, which is required by competitors. Competing solutions have hidden costs and gaps in security because they require multiple product and service components. Achieving visibility and control from solutions requiring service chaining to connect multiple components together proves ineffective, increasing the costs and attack surfaces for organizations.
Versa SASE is the only solution proven to deliver the industry’s leading and differentiated architecture for high performance and security. Gartner recently identified Versa SASE as having the most SASE components out of the 56 vendor products Gartner evaluated. Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) also found that Versa SASE has the most SASE supported functions, as published in its recent industry report.
