Versa Launches SASE Solution Delivering Secure SD-WAN to Remote Employees

Versa Networks has launched Versa Secure Access, delivering secure SD-WAN services and private connectivity for employees who are remote or working from home. Employees can now securely connect to applications in both private and public clouds using Versa Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) services.

The new solution is based on the Versa Operating System (VOS) which powers secure SD-WAN networks on-premises and in the cloud for thousands of customers globally. With this new offering from Versa, end users can leverage a remote access service directly on their end devices that delivers all the benefits of secure SD-WAN. This comprises an assured experience with network and application monitoring, backed by an NSS-recommended integrated security suite.

To protect the enterprise, which now has an expanded threat perimeter with the majority of connections being remote, Versa Secure Access offers a range of security functions including stateful firewall, DOS protection, next-generation firewall, IPS, and URL filtering on end users’ client devices connecting privately to company resources hosted in private data centers, the public cloud and SaaS locations.

Versa Secure Access is available to Versa partners as a turnkey solution that can be deployed and offered as a managed service. Available through Versa’s extensive global channel partner network, Versa Secure Access Service provides integrated security and user authentication capabilities using an enterprise’s own RADIUS, LDAP or Active Directory servers. The solution also supports two-factor authentication for enhanced security.

Versa Secure Access uses industry standard IKEv2/IPsec stack with strong ciphers and large key sizes for protecting traffic. In addition, it delivers private connectivity for VPC-hosted applications, multi-cloud environments, and SaaS applications.

The solution is generally available in North America, EMEA and select APJC geographies from Versa’s global channel partner network as a VPN-as-a-service cloud-based managed service.
