Policy-Based Automation

Available in all Versa products

Automated and consistent policy enforcement everywhere.

Versa Networks provides a centralized approach to management for configuration, monitoring and troubleshooting via a single pane of glass, known as the Versa Director. This approach allows the security operator to configure and apply common security policies across the entire network as easy as configuring a single router. Implementing this modular methodology using templates eliminates configuration errors.

Further, this allows an organization to apply common policies within seconds across the entire SD-WAN environment, a huge improvement over the hours (or days) required in traditional networks. Versa Director provides both a web UI and a comprehensive API for customers to easily manage SD-WAN and security components via a single console. With Versa’s policy-based automation, you can achieve:

Automated Zero-touch Provisioning (ZTP)

Global Zero-touch provisioning enables organizations to rapidly deploy VOS automatically and remotely, at massive scale. VOS uses call-home features to connect to a cloud-based staging server automatically when it powers on. Alternatively, organizations can also choose to activate VOS devices through an onsite administrator using a laptop connected to the device, over a mobile phone for WiFi-enabled devices or through the device client.

Automation of Network Topologies

Versa Secure SD-WAN automates the creation of the most common network security topologies, namely full-mesh, partial mesh, hub & spoke and any other arbitrary topologies. By using the built-in workflows, administrators can create and deploy proven and security validated designs expeditiously. Additionally, workflows can automate the creation of network slices to meet the aggressive SLAs of 5G, MEC use cases effectively.

Versa SASE Automation

Versa provides automated signature and vulnerability updates, log analysis, configuration, and policy updates across on-premises, cloud and the edge. The engine also supports automated self-healing across any user/device/branch with unified policy infrastructure, reducing the touch points for change management.

Versa SD-LAN Automation

Versa delivers Software Defined LAN Networking for Campus with full programmability and automation. The architecture brings AI/ML based automation, tuning and self-healing to detect and contain non-authorized devices across the campus LAN.

Orchestration to Cloud Gateway Services

Versa has Azure API integration to automate IPsec-based connectivity to chosen Azure virtual WAN gateways and AWS Transit Gateways. Using this, site to site VPN tunnels are orchestrated and routes are automatically propagated between cloud and the branch devices. Using this integration, organizations can simplify their cloud architectures and effectively utilize the cloud backbone.

Orchestration to Third-party Secure Web Gateway

Versa Secure SD-WAN with Titan has a fully integrated security stack for customers who want to deploy SD-WAN with security on-premise. In addition, Versa supports orchestration and redirection to multiple third-party Secure Web Gateway providers. Versa supports GRE or IPSec tunnels through automated workflow templates to easily integrate with these Secure Web Gateways. Versa Secure SD-WAN is used as an appliance connecting to a cloud hosted Versa Secure Web Gateway, Versa offers better load balancing and flow distribution, increasing traffic performance.

Versa automation through the Versa Director provides a single pane of glass that is used for automated-update and upgrade of software and security packages of VOS and VOS with Titan instances. Both software and security packages upgrades can be scheduled, for a specific day/time, for all devices or a set of devices. If there is an error or failure during an update or upgrade, the solution supports automatic rollback to the prior version.
