Versa SASE Recognized for Comprehensive Integration of Networking, SD-WAN, Security, Routing, Secure Access, and Analytics for Enterprises, SMBs and Service Providers
San Jose, Calif., January 12, 2021
Versa Networks, the leader in SASE and Secure SD-WAN, today announced that Versa SASE has been named a winner in the 2021 BIG Innovation Awards presented by the Business Intelligence Group.
“More than ever, the global society relies on innovation to help progress humanity and make our lives more productive, healthy and comfortable,” said Maria Jimenez, chief operating officer of the Business Intelligence Group. “We are thrilled to be honoring Versa Networks, as they are one of the organizations leading this charge and helping humanity progress.”
Versa SASE is uniquely differentiated in the ability to deliver comprehensive integrated SASE services both on-premises and via the cloud using the same operating system within a single software stack, VOS™ (Versa Operating System), based on the Versa Single-Pass Parallel Processing architecture. Due to the genuine multi-tenant capabilities, VOS™ delivers these services via the cloud taking advantage of cloud economies of scale while servicing hundreds of thousands of tenants simultaneously. Versa SASE is also uniquely available as a private cloud service wherein enterprises can operate, manage and host their own private Versa Cloud Gateways wherever they choose.
Organizations from across the globe submitted their recent innovations for consideration in the BIG Innovation Awards. Nominations were then judged by a select group of business leaders and executives who volunteer their time and expertise to score submissions.
Versa SASE enables consistent security policies, network policies, business policies, and application policies seamlessly between on-premises and cloud services. The common integrated VOS™ software stack managed by a single management interface and tool creates a ubiquitous experience regardless from where IT decides to provide SASE services (on-premises, cloud, or both).
“Versa is on track to exceed our aggressive growth projections for Versa SASE in 2021, building on the significant traction and recognition we experienced in 2020,” said Michael Wood, Chief Marketing Officer for Versa Networks. “We are honored to be recognized with another award at the start of 2021 for our unique and differentiated innovation with Versa SASE by the BIG Award for Business program panel of business executive judges. This award is additional validation that Versa SASE continues to be the only SASE solution combining a fully integrated robust set of SASE services within one operating system software stack using a single-pass parallel processing architecture and delivered via the cloud, on-premises, or as blended combination of both.”
Versa SASE runs on VOS™, which is designed with the Versa Single-Pass Parallel Processing architecture which combines full-featured SD-WAN, extensible networking, complete integrated security, advanced scalable routing, 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.
