Versa SASE Secure Access Earns New Security Product of the Year Honors in The Globee Awards 2021 Cyber Security Global Excellence Awards Program
Versa SASE Secure Access Recognized as Industry’s Only Comprehensive Integration of Cloud Security, Networking, SD-WAN, Secure Access, and Analytics for Remote and Home Users
San Jose, Calif., March 4, 2021
Versa Networks, the leader in SASE, today announced that its Versa SASE Secure Access work-from-home (WFH) solution has earned New Product of the Year recognition from The Globee® Awards, organizers of the world’s premier business awards programs and business ranking lists. Versa earned the Silver Award in the Security Category of the 17th Annual 2021 Cyber Security Global Excellence Awards®.
These prestigious global awards recognize cyber security and information technology vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products, solutions, and services that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of security and technologies. More than 45 judges from around the world representing a wide spectrum of industry experts participated in the judging process.
Launched last summer, Versa SASE Secure Access 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. Versa began delivering SASE services such as VPN, Secure SD-WAN, Edge Compute Protection, NGFW, Next Generation-Firewall as a Service, SWG, 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 SASE and executing on the 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 recently identified Versa SASE as having the most SASE components out of all 56 vendors Gartner evaluated.
“It is rewarding for Versa SASE to be recognized again in the industry, this time in The Globee Awards Cyber Security Global Excellence Awards Program for uniquely addressing organizations’ continuing security and networking needs for home and remote users,” said Michael Wood, Chief Marketing Officer for Versa Networks. “Versa SASE is the differentiated solution that stands alone in the industry for combining 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.”
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 ACE Partners are uniquely able to offer a cost-effective and simple-to-quote Versa SASE solution rather than stitching together multiple vendors to achieve a single SASE solution.
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.
