Versa Networks, the global provider of AI and ML-powered Unified Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) and Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN), was been selected to provide SD-WAN, Zero Trust access and Customer Edge Security Stack functions for Thunderdome, the Defense Information Systems Agency’s zero trust network access and application security architecture. The integration of Versa technology within Thunderdome’s should provide conditional Zero Trust access at the network edge for DISA users.
“We’re deeply thrilled to be selected as part of Thunderdome, which is pioneering the application of Zero Trust to secure network access for both remote and on-network users,” said Kelly Ahuja, the CEO of Versa Networks. “We are proud that our team was able to successfully demonstrate the use of our secure SD-WAN and Customer Edge Security Stack services to help meet Thunderdome’s rigorous Zero Trust requirements. This selection further establishes Versa as a premier provider of secure networking and Zero Trust networking technology.”
Thunderdome’s components work together to modernize DISA’s infrastructure and integrate with other agency efforts to increase automation, efficiency and security. SD-WAN functions delivered by Versa will provide software-defined routing across the Defense Information System Network (DISN), and Versa’s CESS functions will deliver Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW), IPS/IDS, and on-premises ZTNA (conditional access) services.
