We conformed to WFH mandates. We manipulated workflows. We adopted technology to support this shift. And in recent months, service providers are coming out of the woodwork with solutions fit to meet the specific demands of this new working world.

Today, Versa unveiled Versa Secure Access, a solution capable of delivering WFH and remote working teams with secure, private connectivity. Built on the Versa Operating System (VOS), the solution is the newest addition to the Versa SASE services suite.

The Versa Secure Access solution promises robust application performance and end user experience courtesy of its applications segmentation that will direct applications to the Internet at a cloud gateway or the client. This is the first WFH solution that can offer the above, in addition to monitoring network degradation for proactive action to optimize the experience.

SASE is the natural evolution of SD-WAN, and Versa is joining the first wave of solutions.  Already well-versed in delivering Secure-SD-wan, Versa possesses an NSS-recommended integrated security suite with an eye toward the future.

"Businesses require secure, scalable, high-performance access to cloud services as well as corporate resources and business applications, particularly now with employees working from home," noted Vikram Phatak, CEO with NSS Labs. "Over the past several years Versa products have performed with consistent excellence in our tests; we expect their new SASE offering for user device protection from the cloud, Versa Secure Access, will do the same.  We look forward to testing Versa Secure Access' split tunneling, Secure SD-WAN, and application performance capabilities."

COVID-19 has taught the world much, but from a business technology perspective the takeaways are quite prominent – the need for reliable, scalable, secure solutions capable of driving business productivity regardless of your team’s location.
