The SASE defense to stopping Internet threats.
Cloud adoption and mobility have significantly altered today’s application landscape. Data is no longer restricted to physical data centers centrally managed by an IT organization. Data is now distributed across various SaaS, public, and private cloud platforms making it difficult for organizations to get visibility and control.
In addition to the various locations where data is stored or in transit to and from, users have grown more mobile, accessing data and applications on-the-go on a multitude of devices. At the same time, workplace dynamics have also changed substantially with hybrid workforce being the norm in most organizations.
All these factors have led to a tremendous expansion of the network edge, in turn creating a large, distributed attack surface. With applications, data, users, and devices increasingly shifting off-premises, onto the web, conventional perimeter-based security model with the assumption of data and applications residing on-premises is no longer valid.
Malicious actors are well aware of these trends and they can use websites to distribute malware and other malicious code. In addition, users may be accessing web sites that may not be in compliance with company policies, risking company compliance.
Protecting users on-premises, home office, and on-the-go from today’s web-based attack vectors and ensuring that company compliance is enforced and maintained requires a new class of firewall that is integral to the cloud. It requires a firewall that delivers comprehensive and effective security with the best user experience for enterprise and cloud applications for users connecting from anywhere.
Versa’s Secure Web Gateway (SWG) provides comprehensive set of features to protect its users and their devices from threats from the web-based Internet sources, while also enforcing corporate security policy: ensuring that every connection is secured.
Versa SWG is offered together with a wider scope of technologies by the Versa Secure Internet Access (VSIA) product offering to provide a comprehensive cloud delivered security solution to enterprise sites, home offices, and on-the-go users without compromising performance or enduser experience.
