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
