Sophisticated Analytics

Real-time analytics that give you the visibility and control.

Versa SASE offers a centralized portal for cohesive visibility of applications, users, workloads, databases, web servers, and security policy violations without requiring anyone on staff to understand the intricacies of the specific clouds and their unique tools.

With the Versa SASE single-pane-of-glass, organizations can view a global map and exactly pinpoint the geolocation of any particular workload, and which users are accessing that workload. If a workload is being attacked by an external actor, organizations can block it with a single click, as well as access deep analytics to give more insight into the attack: who is trying to bring down your service, what kind of attack are they using, and how can it be mitigated.

Sophisticated analytics allows an organization to adjust the baseline security posture across all environments. A pane that shows device utilization helps organizations manage performance.

Organizations can create an auto scaling policy to instantiate more devices and increase aggregate performance if the CPU use of any specific device exceeds a given threshold. Organizations can also see which users, in which regions, are using the service. Versa Analytics helps organizations to architect highly availabile infrastructure and prepare a design for future business expansion requirements. This is all done from an application perspective and presented on a single analytics dashboard.

Versa Analytics is the big data solution that provides real-time and historical visibility, baselining, correlation, prediction and closed-loop feedback of your network:

  • Policy driven data logging
  • Real-time and historical traffic visibility and anomaly detection
  • Reporting for multiple network and security services
  • Multi-organizational reporting
  • 3rd party application and monitoring tool integration

Custom reporting on user, device, and application traffic.

Versa SASE provides a native analytics engine that supports multi-dimensional, historical, and near real-time data reporting for network, security, application and user flows. Versa Analytics provides automated report generation and email capabilities to enhance monitoring efficiency.

Seamless, secure connectivity to multiple cloud services is one of the more prominent benefits of Versa SASE. Versa supports path selection based on Versa Link Score (VLS). This is a composite score that takes into consideration TCP parameters, MOS-like scoring, round-trip-time, round-trip-delay, jitter, delay, loss and application performance metrics. Versa utilizes a MOS-like engine for all traffic flows across the network. Using the “experience calculation” with active or passive monitoring, Versa determines how the application is performing.

Versa Analytics provides application intelligence to multiple cloud/SaaS services that are available for easy export and auditing.

True first packet auto-recognition for thousands of applications

Versa Analytics auto-recognizes over 3600+ applications using a built-in Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) engine. Versa Analytics has the ability to identify many SaaS applications on the first packet using an automatically updated database of corresponding IP addresses and domain names. This enables the customer to create policies (including path selection, QoS, security policies) that get applied to the flow starting from the first packet itself.

Are you ready to implement SASE?

Listen to how you can ready yourself for SASE.

Today's network architectures are failing to meet the requirements for digital business. In turn, a new approach is needed and ultimately, businesses need to be getting ready for a SASE transformation.
