Enhancing SASE With Advanced Real Time Protection, Wedge and Adaptiv Networks (News - Alert) Join Forces To Go Next Level All The Way to the Edge

The SD-WAN and SASE markets are hot, high growth markets, but according to new research from MEF (News - Alert), challenges remain, especially for providers who are trying to roll out solutions independent of very active technology ecosystems.

MEF surveyed 36 service provider experts from across the globe and the results showed that the top SD-WAN challenges are organizing around multi-vendor approaches.

The report goes on to say that in addition to dealing with the complexity of operating and managing multi-vendor SD-WAN, integrating security options and defining end-to-end service level agreements (SLAs) are serving up one hurdle after the next.

Adaptiv Networks, a leading cloud-native SD-WAN-as-a-Service vendor, announced today that it has entered into a Partnership Agreement with Wedge Networks (News - Alert) Inc. to integrate the Wedge Absolute Real-time Protection™ solution into Adaptiv’s cloud-based SD-WAN solution – another indication that partnering is the wave of the future.

Wedge Absolute Real-time Protection (WedgeARP) provides an autonomous approach to large-scale real-time threat prevention for cyber threats including newly created or customized malware and zero-day attacks.

With an embedded deep learning AI engine, patented machine learning-based threat detection and real-time deep content inspection for industry leading network traffic visibility, WedgeARP can detect never-before-seen malware in milliseconds.

WedgeARP will be fully integrated into Adaptiv’s cloud-managed SD-WAN solution offerings, so real-time threat prevention and zero trust network access (ZTNA) capabilities can be enabled immediately.

The Adaptiv SASE managed solution will provide powerful security features previously not available to small and medium sized businesses in addition to the simplicity, performance, and cost-effectiveness of Adaptiv’s cloud-managed SD-WAN-as-a-Service.

The resulting Adaptiv Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) solution will offer real-time threat prevention over Adaptiv’s SD-WAN Cloud.

“Wedge is excited to bring intelligent real-time threat protection to small and medium businesses by incorporating our WedgeARP security platform into Adaptiv’s managed SASE solution,” said Dr. Hongwen Zhang (News - Alert), CEO & CTO at Wedge Networks. “With Adaptiv’s focus on simple, agile, and cost-effective solutions, more and more organizations will find it easy to protect themselves from threats.”

"The SASE market continues to grow rapidly as companies seek solutions that can provide end-to-end threat protection,” said Bernard Breton (News - Alert), CEO of Adaptiv Networks. “Our cloud-managed SASE solution will satisfy that need for small and medium businesses by leveraging WedgeARP’s ability to prevent malware attacks before they occur as well as our high-availability SD-WAN-as-a-Service solution.”
