Cato Cloud SD-WAN Service
Cato Networks launched a new software-defined WAN service: the Cato Cloud. The solution converges networking with security to reduce the cost and complexity of existing networks, according to Cato. The Cato Cloud extends the WAN with policy-based routing, an SLA-backed global backbone, enterprise-grade network security as well as cloud and mobile support that reduces reliance on MPLS services.
Cato said the solution eliminates the need for additional firewalls, web filters, VPNs and other security products required by traditional SD-WAN deployments. By embedding security into the network fabric, Cato Cloud enables secure Internet access from branch locations without the need for backhauling or distributed security appliances, said the company.
"Cato Cloud is the blueprint for transforming the enterprise WAN for the business of the future," said Shlomo Kramer, co-founder and CEO of Cato Networks, in a release.
