Versa SASE Earns 2021 Pandemic Tech Innovation Award

Versa Networks, the leader in SASE, today announced that TMC, a global, integrated media company, and its TMC Labs product review division, have named the Versa SASE Secure Access work-from-home (WFH) solution as a 2021 Pandemic Tech Innovation Award winner.

Versa SASE for work-from-home delivers tightly integrated SASE via the cloud, on-premises, or as a blended combination of both via Versa Operating System (VOS™) with a Single-Pass Parallel Processing architecture and managed through a single pane of glass. Versa began delivering SASE services such as VPN, Secure SD-WAN, Edge Compute Protection, Next-Generation Firewall, Next-Generation Firewall as a Service, Secure Web Gateway (News - Alert), and Zero Trust Network Access 5 years ago. Versa uniquely provides contextual security based on user, role, device, application, location, security posture of the device, and content. As the leader in the fastest growing security and networking category, SASE, and executing on SASE services for years, Versa is the only solution proven to deliver the industry's leading and differentiated architecture for high performance and security. Gartner (News - Alert) has identified Versa SASE as having the most SASE components out of all 56 vendors Gartner evaluated. Enterprise Management Associates (EMA (News - Alert)) also found that Versa SASE has the most SASE supported functions, as published in its recent industry report.

"Versa Networks has displayed its commitment to quality and innovation in the development of their tech solutions contributing to managing and overcoming pandemic outbreaks," said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "I look forward to more innovation from Versa and their continued effort toward improving the future of the current challenges faced by the most recent pandemic."

The 2021 Pandemic Tech Innovation Awards recognize hardware, software, devices/peripherals, applications, and services that help society and business functio effectively in the face of challenges caused by pandemics. Winners will be featured on Pandemic Tech News online and TMCnet.




"It is an honor to be the only SASE company recognized for our efforts helping businesses overcome the challenges of the COVID pandemic with our SASE-based WFH solution, and to win the Pandemic Tech Innovation Award," said Michael Wood, Chief Marketing Officer for Versa Networks. "Versa SASE adoption continues to rapidly expand worldwide, due to its ability to uniquely deliver fully integrated SASE services for enterprises, remote branches and workers, and service providers. Versa is the modern secure network."

Unlike competing solutions, Versa SASE was built from the ground up to deliver a tightly integrated SASE solution within a single software stack managed via a single interface, eliminating service chaining, cascading, and virtual interconnect between services, which is required by competitors. Competing solutions have hidden costs and gaps in security because they require multiple product and service components. Achieving visibility and control from solutions requiring service chaining to connect multiple components together proves ineffective, increasing the costs and attack surfaces for organizations.

Versa SASE runs on VOS™, which is designed with the Versa Single-Pass Parallel Processing architecture combining extensive security, advanced networking, industry leading 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.
