Cato Networks Unveils SASE-Based XDR Platform

SASE technology company Cato Networks announced the expansion of the Cato SASE Cloud platform – into threat detection and incident response – with Cato XDR.

The world’s first SASE-based, extended detection and response (XDR) solution, Cato XDR utilizes the full functional and operational capabilities of the Cato SASE Cloud to overcome the protracted deployment times, limited data quality, inadequate investigation and response experience associated with legacy XDR solutions.

Cato also introduced the first SASE-managed endpoint protection platform (EPP). Together, Cato XDR and EPP mark the first expansion beyond the original SASE scope pioneered by Cato in 2016. SASE’s security capabilities encompassed threat prevention and data protection in a common, streamlined global platform.

With this announcement, Cato is expanding SASE into threat detection, incident response and end-point protection.

“Cato SASE continues to be the antidote to security complexity,” says Shlomo Kramer, CEO and co-founder of Cato Networks. “Today, we extend our one-of-a-kind SASE platform beyond threat prevention and into threat detection and response. Only Cato and our simple, automated and elegant platform can streamline security this way.”

Cato XDR takes advantage of the benefits of the Cato SASE Cloud platform. Introduced in 2016, the Cato platform was built to allow enterprises to connect, secure and manage sites, users and cloud resources anywhere in the world.

Unlike disjointed point solutions and security appliances, Cato capabilities are instantly on, always available at scale, and fully converged together, giving IT teams a single, shared context worldwide through which to understand their networks, prevent threats, and resolve problems. An autonomous platform, Cato SASE Cloud sustains its own evolution, resiliency, optimal performance, scalability, global reach and security posture. No customer involvement is needed. They can simply subscribe to Cato’s optimized and secure platform.
