San Jose, Calif., June 7, 2022
Versa Networks, the recognized secure access service edge (SASE) leader, today announced that its industry-leading Versa SASE has won the 2022 Fortress Cyber Security Award in the Network Security awards category. Versa’s industry-leading SASE solution is being demonstrated in Versa’s booth No. 4227 in the Moscone North Hall this week at the RSA Conference 2022.
The Fortress Cyber Security Awards program sought to identify and reward the world’s leading companies and products that are working to keep our data and electronic assets safe among a growing threat from hackers. Unlike other industry award programs, these programs are judged by business executives having experience and knowledge.
“We are so proud to name Versa SASE as a winner in the 2022 Fortress Cyber Security Awards program,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer, Business Intelligence Group. “As our society continues to evolve and become more reliant on networks and data, companies like Versa Networks are critical at providing the protection and trust consumers demand.”
“It’s always validating when a group of independent business executives recognizes the uniqueness and value of your solution for network security, as the judging panel for the Fortress Cyber Security Awards has done for Versa SASE,” said Michael Wood, Chief Marketing Officer for Versa Networks. “Versa SASE delivers unique integration of networking and security SASE services via the cloud or, if customers prefer, delivered on-premises or as a blended combination of both. Organizations around the world look to Versa as a strategic partner to address their complex secure access, networking and digital transformation needs. Versa is the modern secure network.”
Versa SASE delivers tightly integrated services 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 (SWG), and Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) more than 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 SASE, the fastest growing security and networking category, 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. Dell’Oro Group listed Versa as the 2021 SASE market share leader with 84-percent market share for the unified category in its 4Q21 Network Security Quarterly Report. 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 industry report.
