The 5 Hottest SASE Technologies To Know In 2021
The SASE space is heating up as vendors are all getting into the game, from longtime security leaders, to SD-WAN specialists and upstarts. Here are the hottest SASE offerings that solution providers should know about right now.
Versa Networks, a security and SD-WAN specialist, is one of the leading players in the SASE space right now if its leadership position in the Gartner Magic Quadrant report for WAN Edge Infrastructure is any indication.
The San Jose, Calif.-based company this month is injecting SASE functions into its popular SD-WAN offering for smaller customers, Versa Titan. Now, the platform includes Secure Web Gateway (SWG) and Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), which have been added to Titan’s existing SD-WAN, routing, Next Generation Firewall (NGFW), IDS/IPS, Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware, Role-Based Access Control, and User and Entity Behaviour Analytics. Versa Titan is helping to make SASE more accessible to small- business customers, one Versa partner told CRN.
Also on the SASE menu, the company in June picked up on its customers’ needs around remote access management in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and introduced its software-based Versa Secure Access, which gives channel partners a scalable, remote access service that lets customers securely connect to applications in both private and public clouds. The offering requires no physical appliances or VPN concentrators that have to be shipped to employees’ homes, Versa told CRN.
