Cato Networks provides software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) and security at the edge -- a self-proclaimed SASE provider. Cato’s Edge SD-WAN device, Cato Socket, comes in two zero-touch models that can be up and running in minutes, while its Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) converges the function of network and security point solutions into a unified cloud-native service.
Cato in August secured its largest round of financing yet of $77 million, bringing its total funding to date to more than $200 million. The company said the funding followed a 220 percent increase in bookings and a very strong first quarter of 2020, despite global pressures, including the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. Five-year old Cato Networks does 100 percent of its business through partners.
