Versa SASE Awarded 2020 Cybersecurity Excellence Award

Versa Networks, the leader in SASE, today announced that TMC named Versa SASE a winner of the 2020 Cybersecurity Excellence Award, presented by INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine.

Versa SASE is uniquely differentiated in the ability to deliver comprehensive integrated SASE services both via the cloud and on-premises using the same operating system within a single software stack, VOS™ (Versa Operating System), based on the Versa Single-Pass Parallel Processing architecture. Due to the genuine multi-tenant capabilities, VOS™ delivers these services via the cloud taking advantage of cloud economies of scale while servicing hundreds of thousands of tenants simultaneously. Versa SASE is also uniquely available as a private cloud service wherein enterprises can operate, manage and host their own private Versa Cloud Gateways wherever they choose.

"Congratulations to Versa Networks for being honored with an INTERNET TELEPHONY Cybersecurity Excellence Award for innovation in IP communications," stated Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC (News - Alert). "Versa SASE has demonstrated outstanding quality and has delivered exceptional, measurable, tangible results for its users."

Versa SASE enables consistent security policies, network policies, business policies, user policies, and application policies seamlessly between on-premises and cloud services. The common integrated VOS™ software stack managed by a single management interface and tool creates a ubiquitous experience regardless from where IT decides to provide SASE services (on-premises, cloud, or as a blended combination of both).

"It is rewarding to be recognized with another award for our unique and differentiated innovation with Versa SASE, and the significant growth experienced last year," said Michael Wood, Chief Marketing Officer for Versa Networks. "Versa SASE has continued to earn accolades, as the industry recognizes it as the only SASE solution combining a fully integrated robust set of SASE services within one operating system software stack using a single-pass parallel processing architecture and delivered via the cloud, on-premises, or as blended combination of both."

Versa SASE runs on VOS™, which is designed with the Versa Single-Pass Parallel Processing architecture which combines extensive security, advanced networking, full-featured SD-WAN, genuine multitenancy, and sophisticated analytics into one software image. This integration and design methodology dramatically decreases latency, significantly improves performance, and mitigates security vulnerabilities which other solutions introduce by running multiple software stacks, service chains, or appliances.
