Cato Introduces Hands-free Management for Global SD-WAN

Cato Networks announced today Hands-free Management for Cato Cloud, a secure managed SD-WAN service built with the global reach and agility of the cloud.

With Cato Hands-free Management, enterprises can offload network and security configuration and change management onto Cato or its partners.This offering brings the ease of fully managed services to Cato’s global SD-WAN, letting organizations move responsibility for networking and security configuration to the expert staff at Cato or its partners. At the same time, the company says, enterprises can retain control of their networks through the self-service and co-management models already included with Cato Cloud.

With self-service, enterprises realize unsurpassed agility by configuring and troubleshooting the networks themselves, doing in seconds what otherwise required hours or days with legacy telcos. For additional assistance, co-management allows customers to rely on ongoing support from Cato or its partners without relinquishing control for overall management.

Along with Cato Hands-free Management, Cato Managed Services include managed threat detection and response: intelligence last-mile management; and rapid site deployment.
