Product Components

Reducing Complexity and Costs of Traditional Networking

Versa is fundamentally different than proprietary and expensive network software and hardware. Versa SASE combines security, networking, industry-leading SD-WAN analytics, and automation within a single stack that can be deployed avia the cloud, on-premises, or a blended combination of both.

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 is designed to run directly on bare metal Versa CSG appliances with industry leading features and competitive price points. Versa also runs 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 Versa SASE to mobile devices, branch offices, regional locations, campuses, headquarters, private data centers, private clouds, public clouds, and multiclouds.

VOS (Versa Operating System)

The highly flexible VOS enables businesses, organizations, and service providers to deploy Versa 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 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 application that runs on and extends Versa 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 devices 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.

Appliances

Versa CSG appliances are based on an x86 architecture to deliver cloud-native Versa SASE services on-premises.

CSG300 Series

CSG300 series appliances are ideal for customers deploying Versa SASE in small Enterprise and home branch solutions.

CSG700 Series

CSG700 series appliances are designed for deployment in mid-to higher level Enterprise branches to deliver industry’s richest set of Versa SASE services.

CSG1000 Series

CSG1000 series appliances are high performance, scalable branch appliances for Versa SASE deployments.

Control & Management

Versa offers simplified control and management via four complementary components:

Versa Director

Versa Director is a virtualization and service creation platform that simplifies the design, automation, and delivery of SASE services. Versa Director provides the essential management, monitoring and orchestration capabilities needed to deliver all of the networking and security capablities within Versa SASE.

Versa Analytics

Versa Analytics is a rich near real-time big data solution that provides visibility and control, base-lining, correlation, prediction and feedback loop into Versa SASE. Versa Analytics analyzes large amounts of data sent from VOS to present actionable business insights including current and historical search, reports on usage patterns, trends, security events, and alerts.

Versa Concerto

Versa Concerto offers automation and orchestration for SASE workflows, enabling faster and easier deployments, secure operations, and centralized management. It is also the orchestration platform for all WAN edge functions such as routing, security services including service chaining to advanced third-party security services and WAN optimization.
