Secure Access Service Edge (SASE)
Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) is a new enterprise networking technology category introduced by Gartner in 2019. SASE converges the functions of network and security point solutions into a unified, global cloud-native service. It is an architectural transformation of enterprise networking and security that enables IT to provide a holistic, agile and adaptable service to the digital business. What makes SASE unique is its transformational impact across multiple IT domains.
Today we are witnessing the continued use of cloud, mobility, and edge, which has resulted in increased pressure on the legacy network and security architecture. Enterprises are transitioning all users, applications, and data located on-premise, to a heavy reliance on the cloud, edge applications, and a dispersed mobile workforce. The new SASE category converges the capabilities of WAN with network security to support the needs of the digital enterprise. Some of these disparate networks and security services include SD-WAN, secure web gateway, CASB, software-defined perimeter, DNS protection, and firewall-as-a-service.
With SASE, enterprises can reduce the time to develop new products, deliver them to the market, and respond to changes in business conditions or the competitive landscape.
Cato is the World’s First SASE Platform
Cato Cloud is a proven SASE platform you can deploy today. Cato’s cloud-native architecture converges SD-WAN, a global private backbone, a full network security stack, and seamless support for cloud resources and mobile devices.
Customers easily connect physical locations, cloud resources, and mobile users to Cato Cloud, and IT teams immediately benefit from the agility of a unified network and security service managed through a single, self-service console.
Cato Cloud Network
Cloud-based and SLA-backed Global Backbone
Cato Cloud Network SLA-backed Global Backbone
The Cato Cloud Network is built on a globally distributed, scalable, and redundant Points of Presence (PoPs). The PoPs are interconnected with SLA-backed global carrier transports. The PoPs are meshed into a global overlay and continuously monitor the carriers latency and packet loss to determine optimal path between any two locations. The PoPs run Cato’s integrated network and security software stack to optimize and secure traffic flow. This software-defined architecture enables the rapid introduction of new capabilities when compared with legacy hardware-based or virtual routers.
Cato Security Services
Enterprise grade, elastic and agile network security services, tightly integrated into the Cloud network.
Comprehensive Network Security Everywhere
Cato has built a full network security stack directly into the global backbone software. This architecture extends enterprise-grade network security protection for every business user and location – without deploying edge security appliances. Inspection and enforcement are applied to both WAN- and Internet-bound traffic as well as TLS encrypted traffic.
