Sophisticated Analytics

Available in all Versa products

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

Versa Secure SD-WAN 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 Secure SD-WAN single-pane-of-glass, you 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, you 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 you to adjust your baseline security posture across all environments. A pane that shows device utilization helps you manage performance.

If, perhaps, the CPU use of any specific device exceeds a given threshold, you can create an auto scaling policy to instantiate more devices and increase aggregate performance. You can also see exactly which users, in which regions, are using your service. These displays help you to architect high availability or prepare a design for future business expansion requirements. And it 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 provides a native Analytics engine that supports multi-dimensional, historical, and near real-time data reporting for network, security, application and user flows. Versa 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 a cloud-smart SD-WAN. 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 SD-WAN. Using the “experience calculation” with active or passive monitoring, we can determine how the app is performing, combined with network monitoring.

By doing so, Versa provides application intelligence to multiple cloud/SaaS services that are available for easy export and auditing.

True first packet auto-recognition to 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.
