Versa SASE Wins 2021 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award
Versa Networks, the leader in SASE, announced that Versa SASE has been awarded the 2021 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award. These awards honor exceptional products and services that facilitate voice, data and video communications that were brought to market or greatly improved upon in the past 12 months.
Versa SASE wins 2021 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award for delivering industry’s only comprehensive integration of cloud security, networking, SD-WAN, secure access, and analytics for enterprises and service providers
“Congratulations to Versa Networks for being honored with a Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “Versa SASE is truly an innovative product and is amongst the best communications products and services available on the market today. I look forward to continued excellence from Versa in 2021 and beyond.”
Versa SASE delivers tightly integrated services via the cloud, on-premises, or as a blended combination of both via Versa Operating System (VOS™) with a Single-Pass Parallel Processing architecture and managed through a single pane of glass. Versa began delivering SASE services such as VPN, Secure SD-WAN Edge Compute Protection, Next-Generation Firewall, Next-Generation Firewall as a Service, Secure Web Gateway (SWG), and Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) five years ago. Versa uniquely provides contextual security based on user, role, device, application, location, security posture of the device, and content. As the leader in the fastest growing security and networking category, SASE, and executing on SASE services for years, Versa is the only solution proven to deliver the industry’s leading and differentiated architecture for high performance and security. Gartner has identified Versa SASE as having the most SASE components out of all 56 vendors Gartner evaluated. Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) also found that Versa SASE has the most SASE supported functions, as published in its 2021 industry report.
“Versa continues to stand out from the competition in independent reviews for its unique integration of networking and security SASE services via the cloud or, if customers prefer, delivered on-premises or as a blended combination of both,” said Michael Wood, Chief Marketing Officer for Versa Networks. “Being continually recognized by industry analysts, most recently as a leader by GigaOm, and in awards programs across the industry, this time winning TMC’s 2021 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award, continues to reiterate that Versa is the modern secure network.”
Unlike competing solutions, Versa SASE was built from the ground up to deliver a tightly integrated SASE solution within a single software stack managed via a single interface, eliminating service chaining, cascading, and virtual interconnect between services, which is required by competitors. Competing solutions have hidden costs and gaps in security because they require multiple product and service components. Achieving visibility and control from solutions requiring service chaining to connect multiple components together proves ineffective, increasing the costs and attack surfaces for organizations.
