Product Components

Reducing Complexity and Costs of Traditional Networking

Versa is fundamentally different than proprietary and expensive network software and hardware equipment. Versa’s software architecture combines security, full-featured SD-WAN, routing, analytics, and automation in a single stack that can be deployed anywhere: whether on-premises, hosted, or in the cloud.

Deployed on low-cost x86 architectures and appliances utilizing the latest advances in processors and virtualized infrastructure, Versa radically reduces capital purchases and expensive upgrades and refreshes that are common with legacy network hardware devices.

Versa supports the widest set of deployment options in the industry and can be deployed in both legacy networks, cloud, SASE, and new SDN environments. Versa is designed to run directly on bare metal Versa Cloud Service Gateway (CSG) set of appliances with industry leading features and competitive price points. Versa is also supported to run on certified and preconfigured white box platforms, hypervisor VMs (VMware ESXi, KVM, Xen and Microsoft Hyper-V), and IaaS platforms (Amazon, Google and Microsoft). Versa takes full advantage of multi-core processors and Intel DPDK support for maximum use of the underlying compute resources, thus resulting in high performance and throughput.

Endpoints

VOS and VSAC extend Secure SD-WAN and SASE to mobile devices, branch offices, regional locations, campuses, headquarters, private data centers, private clouds, public clouds, and multiclouds.

Versa Operating System (VOS)

The highly flexible Versa Operating System (VOS) enables businesses, organizations, and service providers to deploy a broad spectrum of software-defined solutions including Secure SD-WAN and Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) in branch offices, cloud, campus and data centers. Regardless of where VOS is deployed (on-premises or in the cloud), all network and security capabilities are provisioned and managed centrally through the Versa Director, a single-pane-of-glass management platform. Versa Analytics works in conjunction with Versa Director to provide visibility, base-lining, correlation, and predictive analysis for network, application usage, and security events. With Versa Analytics, all network security, application usage, export reports and logs are analyzed, filtered and are easily searchable for events to derive actionable insights.

Versa Secure Access Client (VSAC)

Versa Secure Access Client (VSAC) is a mobile software agent/application that runs on and extends Versa Secure SD-WAN and SASE to client devices (i.e., Windows devices, MacOS devices, iOS devices, Linux devices, and smart phones). Versa Secure Access Client creates a secure and encrypted connection from remote device to the distributed system of Versa Cloud Gateways with application segmentation and SD-WAN services.

Upon user authentication and access authorization through Versa Cloud Gateways, users with VSAC can securely, reliabily, and with high performance connect to enterprise applications in public and private cloud.

Control & Management

Versa offers easy control and management through four different solutions:

Versa Director

Versa Director is Versa Networks’ virtualization and service creation platform that simplifies the creation, automation and delivery of services using Versa WAN edge software, VOS. Versa Director provides the essential management, monitoring and orchestration capabilities needed to deliver Versa’s Secure SD-WAN architecture network and security software services. Services supported by Versa include routing and advanced connectivity to direct traffic across multi-link WAN access and simplify control for SD-WAN with embedded advanced security.

Versa Analytics

Versa Analytics is purpose-built for Versa Secure SD-WAN for use-case focused analytics covering routing, SD-WAN, and security. It is a rich near real-time big data solution that provides visibility and control, base-lining, correlation, prediction and feedback loop into Versa software solutions. It provides near real-time and historical search, reports on usage patterns, trends, security events, and alerts. Versa Analytics analyzes large amounts of data sent from VOS to present critical data points as actionable analytics and reports. Tight native integration with Versa VOS ensures optimized storage, search and performance.

Versa Concerto

Versa Concerto offers automation and orchestration for all your SD-WAN workflows enables faster and easier deployments, secure operations, and centralized management whether in the cloud or on-premises.

Versa Concerto offers an orchestration platform for all WAN edge functions such as routing, security services including service chaining to advanced third-party security services and WAN optimization.
