It’s no surprise to see SASE architecture find favor with the enterprise. The demand for secure and reliable connectivity to critical cloud applications is crucial, as our work from home, multi-cloud, results-driven reality is causing the reimaging of networks around the globe. And, service providers are ready to assist in these efforts.




This week, Masergy announced SD-WAN Work From Anywhere solutions. SD-WAN Secure Home and SD-WAN on the Go are directly addressing the demands of the modern digital first firm, with a strong SASE foundation and the ability to optimize WFH operations.

“Masergy’s Work From Anywhere solutions serve as just the latest example of how we are leveraging our cloud and network platform to serve businesses and employees regardless of their location. When resources must be available anywhere and data must be secured everywhere, Masergy is uniquely positioned to meet the needs of multi-cloud, work-from-home companies,” said Terry Traina, CTO, Masergy.

When we dig in to the SD-WAN Secure Home, the Fortinet Secure SD-WAN is where we start. The lightweight device enables optimal application performance from home in addition to built-in next generation firewall and routing, SASE security functions and access to an ecosystem of cloud services

“We believe SD-WAN should be able to be deployed anywhere, whether at home, branch, campus or multi-cloud, to enable today’s increasingly mobile workforce,” noted John Maddison, EVP of products and CMO at Fortinet (News - Alert). “Masergy and Fortinet have partnered together to deliver Work From Anywhere solutions that take a security-driven networking approach–combining networking and security into a single solution–to enable the remote workforce. Through our differentiated solutions, we can deliver flexible, anytime, anywhere security for emerging SASE use cases.”

SD-WAN On the Go is a multi-platform software client and VPN that leverages IPsec tunnels and next-gen endpoint protection, as well as SASE-based connectivity from anywhere to ensure secure access to the corporate network. SD-WAN On the Go is available in November.

What’s become abundantly clear in recent months, is home internet is not meant for business means. With new Masergy Work From Anywhere solutions IT can manage operations through a unified portal and are bundled with UCaaS, WiFi (News - Alert)-enabled video phones, additional security and more – all with zero-touch provisioning. – sans performance or security hiccups.
