Versa SASE Secure Access Receives 2021 Product of the Year Award
Judges and Editorial Team Honor Versa 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 9, 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 recipient of a 2021 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award.
“I am honored to recognize Versa Networks with a 2021 Product of the Year Award for its commitment to excellence and innovation,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “In the opinion of our judges and editorial team, Versa SASE Secure Access has proven to be among the best communications and technology solutions available on the market. I look forward to continued leadership from Versa.”
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. 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.
The winners of the 2021 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Awards will be featured in INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine online and on TMCnet. For more information, visit www.tmcnet.com.
“After proving so successful addressing organizations’ remote and work-from-home needs, Versa SASE is accumulating its share of industry recognitions, as evidenced by earning this latest Product of the Year Award,” said Michael Wood, Chief Marketing Officer for Versa Networks. “Versa SASE is recognized in the industry as the 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.”
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.
