SASE on SIM for Mobile Operators

Clientless, SIM-based identity for authentication and access control in mobile networks


SIM-based authentication

Versa SASE on SIM integrates network and security services directly into the mobile network architecture without the need for an agent or on-device application – all without a change to the mobile network. It leverages SIM-based identity for authentication and access control – enabling the application of advanced security policies at the mobile network edge at the granularity of the subscriber.

Traffic from SIM-enabled devices is enforced through a SASE point of enforcement where it undergoes security checks and policy enforcement before reaching enterprise resources. This model enables a decentralized, scalable, and secure approach to network access and data protection, aligning with the distributed nature of modern enterprise operations.

Build value added SASE services

Enterprises face an overwhelming challenge when securing IoT and SIM-based IT devices in mobile networks. IoT devices are limited by an inability to incorporate traditional security agents. SIM-enabled IT devices are burdened by the complexity of lifecycle management and ongoing costs of multiple agents/clients on multiple operating systems and end devices. Moreover, built-in device fingerprinting capabilities ensure that right device is using the associated data plan.

Securing these use cases drive the value added services that mobile operators can deliver with Versa SASE on SIM. These will enable enterprises with visibility for every user and device on the network, Zero Trust enforcement into the mobile operator network, and security for any-to-any connectivity between users, devices and apps regardless of location.
