Versa SASE for Government

Enabling Zero Trust with Versa SASE

Versa provides a minimalistic and ready-to-use solution for all your needs. In a world where IT modernization and cloud transformation are exponentially growing, the government is expected to follow suit. Versa SASE helps enable government agencies to securely access their data in real-time from anywhere in the world.

Protecting against data breaches is more critical now than ever due to the severity of the attack: from state sponsored to malicious insiders, safeguarding sensitive data is of the utmost importance. In a world of increasing cyber-attacks, federal agencies need to implement a Zero Trust security framework. Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) securely connects users and devices to applications in both the private and public clouds with the philosophy of trusting no one.

The best way to implement ZTNA is by adopting a SASE architecture that converges both your networking and security needs. Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) is a modern architecture that combines networking and security services to enable seamless and secure user access to everything that users have privileges to, anytime, and from anywhere.

“The United States faces persistent and increasingly sophisticated malicious cyber campaigns that threaten the public sector, the private sector, and ultimately the American people’s security and privacy…Protecting our Nation from malicious cyber actors requires the Federal Government to partner with the private sector.”

– President Biden

What is SASE for Government?

Versa SASE includes many networking and security services that help support government operations, such as Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN), Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), and Trusted Internet Connections (TIC) 3.0 compliance.

The platform delivers these services in a single software stack, single management interface, flexibly via the cloud, on-premises, or as a blended combination of both. Public sector organizations can leverage these capabilities to adopt the application delivery infrastructure that best fits their requirements without sacrificing security, performance, reliability, or control.

Governments, like large enterprises, are experiencing significant changes in their operating environment and are striving to modernize their network to accommodate these needs.

Versa SASE solves security breaches and user challenges with:

  • Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN)
  • Zerto Trust Network Access (ZTNA)
  • Secure Web Gateway (SWG)
  • Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB)
  • Firewall-as-a-Service (FWaaS)
  • Remote Browser Isolation (RBI)

Federal agencies have extremely stringent compliance and regulatory requirements because their data is highly sought after by financially and politically motivated attackers. Whether the attacker is targeting social security numbers, classified documents and data, or government traded secrets, maximum security measures must be integrated across the entire network.

As seen in previous government breaches, these attacks can shut down essential business operations throughout the organization. Government shutdowns affect millions of Americans and can lead to serious financial losses and invasion of citizen’s personal information.

Versa SASE delivers key capabilities including:

  • Complete security flexibility in the network
  • Policy-driven security
  • RBAC assessed through communication sessions
  • Purely software-defined services
  • Applicable at the network logical edge vs. physical edge
  • Secure connection to IoT devices

Federal Use Cases

Versa SASE can help a variety of governmental use cases:

Department of Defense

Promotes secure government data communications across all networks through software-define wide area networks.

Civilian Agencies

Support responsive and effective engagement with civilians and other government agency members without quality loss or network latency.

Intelligence Agencies

Enable secure and efficient communications with members of intelligence community. Securely transfer and access classified documents from anywhere in real-time.

System Integrators

Seamlessly share private data and information when working with 3rd party vendors.

Trusted Internet Connections (TIC) 3.0

TIC 3.0 goal is to secure federal data, networks, and boundaries while providing visibility into agency traffic, including cloud communications. Version 3.0 increases security standards and leverages advances in technology to help maintain secure network architectures.

Set-up Instant Networks. Anywhere. Anytime.

Versa is modernizing the tactical edge for the Army. Versa SASE enables instant networks to be populated wherever and whenever, helping mitigate current network security and performance issues.

This sophisticated platform can support the geographical and environmental issues that IT and security teams are plagued with when launching new networks allowing them to be mobile and easily accessible. Network integration can be done securely and quickly through the use of ZTNA.

ZTNA Control

ZTNA can help prevent potential data breaches and cybersecurity attacks through the framework of technologies working together, based on the assumption that nothing is trusted: not users, devices, data, workloads, locations, or the network.

ZTNA’s primary function within a SASE solution is to authenticate users to applications. Advanced context and role-based identity, combined with Multifactor Authentication (MFA), are essential for securing access for users and devices, for both on and off-network access.

FIPS 140-2

FIPS 140-2 Level 1

FIPS 140-2 is a compliance that meets NIST requirements for cryptography use in security systems. Versa is currently under FIPS 140-2 Level 1 evaluation and expects to receive accreditation by July/August 2021. Even though Versa is currently being evaluated, Federal agencies can still purchase products.
