Versa SASE Awarded 2021 Teleworking Solutions Excellence Award

Versa Only SASE Solution to Win TMCnet Award Recognizing the Best Products Supporting Remote Workers in Today’s Continued Work from Anywhere Environment
San Jose, Calif., May 27, 2021

Versa Networks, the leader in SASE, today announced that Versa SASE has been named a 2021 TMCnet Teleworking Solutions Excellence Award winner. Versa is the only SASE solution recognized by TMCnet as best supporting remote workers in today’s continued work from anywhere (WFA) environment.

The TMCnet Teleworking Solutions Excellence Award honors products that ensure remote workers have access to the same communications and other corporate resources as they would in the office. Whether they are adjusting to new teleworking environments during the COVID-19 pandemic, or had previously adopted technologies in response to an already existing remote workforce trend, the products and services winning the 2021 Teleworking Solutions Excellence Award enable businesses to effectively support their mobile and remote workforces.

“The TMCnet Teleworking Solutions Excellence Award recognizes the best and the most innovative products that this industry has to offer,” stated Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “Versa Networks has proven their commitment to quality and the further development of the teleworking solutions industry through its Versa SASE solution. Congratulations to the entire team at Versa for earning this great honor. I look forward to seeing more innovative solutions from them as they continue to contribute to the future of teleworking.”

Versa SASE delivers tightly integrated SASE via the cloud, on-premises, or as a blended combination of both via Versa Operating System (VOS™) with a Single-Pass Parallel Processing architecture and managed through a single pane of glass. Versa began delivering SASE services such as VPN, Secure SD-WAN, Edge Compute Protection, Next-Generation Firewall, Next-Generation Firewall as a Service, Secure Web Gateway, and Zero Trust Network Access five years ago. Versa uniquely provides contextual security based on user, role, device, application, location, security posture of the device, and content. As the leader in the fastest growing security and networking category, SASE, and executing on SASE services for years, Versa is the only solution proven to deliver the industry’s leading and differentiated architecture for high performance and security. Gartner has identified Versa SASE as having the most SASE components out of all 56 vendors Gartner evaluated. Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) also found that Versa SASE has the most SASE supported functions, as published in its recent industry report.

“It is an honor to receive the 2021 Teleworking Solutions Excellence Award, recognizing Versa SASE for uniquely integrating security, networking and secure access SASE services for organizations’ continued remote workforces,” said Michael Wood, Chief Marketing Officer for Versa Networks. “SASE adoption has expanded rapidly over the past 12 months, and much of that has been driven by organizations’ need to provide secure access to corporate resources for the mass of teleworkers resulting from the pandemic. As this competition showed, Versa SASE is the solution of choice for organization with remote workers, due to its wealth of differentiated SASE services tightly integrated into one solution. Versa is the modern secure network.”

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 runs on VOS, which is designed with the Versa Single-Pass Parallel Processing architecture combining extensive security, advanced networking, industry leading SD-WAN, genuine multitenancy, 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.
