Work-from-home is the new normal.

Organizations are thrown into a new paradigm where remote work, or oftentimes called “work-from-home”, is the standard in office culture to maintain operational and business continuity.

With entire workforces connecting remotely through different devices, organizations have had to face many networking and security challenges. Now more than ever, a new network model is needed to deliver remote working that is scalable, flexible, agile, and secure.

 

Building resiliency and reliability in a time of doubt.

The dramatic increase in the number of remote workers and the lack of an adaptable and an agile network infrastructure to scale up and support day-to-day needs has created the demand for network resiliency and reliability. With users remotely trying to access cloud-hosted applications, on-premises applications, VoIP, Virtual desktop applications, together with SaaS application such as Salesforce and Office365, security and performance demands skyrocket.

This massive network traffic volume requires modern solutions that can “work-from-home” seamless and secure. Traditional network architecture implements manual device-by-device configurations and extremely slow remote site deployments that cannot meet modern requirements.

Scalability and security delivered through
Versa Secure Access.


Versa Secure Access is a resilient and reliable “work-from-home” solution and is the industry’s first to deliver SASE services and private connectivity for employees who are remote or working from home. These employees are able to securely connect to applications in both private and public clouds. Versa Secure Access is part of Versa SASE which runs on VOS™ (Versa Operating System) and is available via the cloud, on-premises, or as a blended combination of both.

End users can leverage a remote access service directly on their end devices that delivers the benefits of SASE. Versa Secure Access delivers an assured experience for the end user with network and application monitoring, all backed by an NSS-recommended (now CyberRatings) integrated security suite.

To protect the Enterprise, which now has an expanded threat perimeter with the majority of connections being remote, Versa Secure Access offers the industry’s widest range of security functions in a SASE solution. These include:

  • Stateful Firewall
  • DoS protection
  • Next-Generation Firewall
  • Intrusion Protection System (IPS)
  • URL filtering

These security capabilities are enforced on end users’ client devices connecting privately to company resources hosted in private data centers, the public cloud, and SaaS locations. In addition to the capabilities above, Versa Secure Access Service provides integrated security and user authentication capabilities using an Enterprise’s own RADIUS, LDAP, or Active Directory servers.

The solution also supports two-factor authentication for enhanced security. Versa Secure Access uses industry standard IKEv2/IPsec stack with strong ciphers and large key sizes for protecting traffic. In addition, it delivers private connectivity for VPC-hosted applications, multi-cloud environments, and SaaS applications.

Versa enables Zero Trust Network Access
for securing WFH.


Versa Secure Access is a cloud managed solution delivering a Zero Trust Network Access service to efficiently connect distributed users with distributed applications without compromising on security or user experience. Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) is based on the fundamental philosophy of trusting no one and requiring a user to verify privileges before access.

In the context of secure access, the requirements translate to the following differentiated features of Versa Secure Access:

  • Application Segmentation to restrict access
  • Strong Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)
  • Granular Application and Role-Based Control
  • Application and Network Visibility
