Versa Networks, the recognized leader of single-vendor Unified Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), today announced that the Versa Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) solution received a Recommended Rating by CyberRatings.org, including passing all Authentication & Identity, Resource Access, Routing & Policy Enforcement, and TLS/SSL tests.
CyberRatings is a non-profit member organization that provides transparency and expert guidance on cybersecurity risks through research and objective product testing. In Q3 2023, CyberRatings conducted an independent “real world” test of Versa’s Security Service Edge (SSE) focused on its Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) capabilities. The tests were performed using Amazon Web Services and CyberRatings’ facility in Austin, Texas. CyberRatings pioneered real world testing of existing and emerging cybersecurity technologies, and its Zero Trust Network Access Test (ZTNA) Methodology test was first published in June 2021.

“We are pleased, but not surprised, to see that the Versa ZTNA has been validated and recommended by CyberRatings, by passing every functional test and delivering extremely high performance,” said Dan Maier, Versa Networks CMO. “While SSE technology is not new to the market, many companies are trying to claim product leadership in the space, and security buyers often have a difficult time determining what level of performance and functionality they should expect from these solutions. Independent testing organizations such as CyberRatings that evaluate products under real world conditions are vitally important to help clear away this confusion, and we are excited that this report shows that enterprises can rely on Versa when looking for a proven ZTNA solution.”

“As a non-profit, our mission is to provide organizations with objective assessments to help them select security offerings,” said Vikram Phatak, CEO of CyberRatings.org. “It is clear from the results that Versa Networks has built a high-performing and reliable ZTNA solution.”
