San Jose, Calif., March 31, 2021
Versa Networks, the leader in SASE,today announced that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named the Versa SASE Secure Access work-from-home (WFH) solution as a winner of a 2021 INTERNET TELEPHONY SD-WAN Product of the Year Award.
“Congratulations to Versa Networks for receiving a 2021 INTERNET TELEPHONY SD-WAN Product of the Year Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “Versa SASE Secure Access has demonstrated true innovation and is leading the way for Software-Defined Wide Area Network. I look forward to continued excellence from Versa in 2021 and beyond.”
Versa SASE for work-from-home 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 5 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.
The INTERNET TELEPHONY SD-WAN Product of the Year Awards are bestowed upon companies that demonstrate the innovation, vision, and execution to deliver software-based networking tools to support different and unique communities of interest.
“Organizations remain challenged to support their remote and work-from-home requirements, and Versa SASE is recognized in the industry as uniquely helping organizations address these needs,” said Michael Wood, Chief Marketing Officer for Versa Networks. “Versa SASE is the industry’s only solution that combines a fully integrated robust set of SASE services within one operating system software stack using a single-pass parallel processing architecture delivered via the cloud, on-premises, or as blended combination of both. 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.
