CATO SASE Cloud:
The Future of Networking.

Cato SASE cloud is a global converged cloud-native service that securely and optimally connects all branches, datacentres, people, and clouds. Cato can be gradually deployed to replace or augment legacy network/SD-WAN/MPLS/VPN services and security point solutions.

The Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) is a new enterprise networking technology category introduced by Gartner in 2019. SASE converges the functions of network and security point solutions into a unified, global cloud service. These include SD-WAN, Global Private Backbone, Secure Web Gateway, Firewall-as-a-service, and more.

The term SASE was introduced by Gartner in 2019 and has been described by Gartner as the future of networking and security.

Cato SASE cloud is a converged network architecture that securely connects branches, remote users, datacentres and cloud services into a single cloud-based configuration and management platform.

The SASE platform can be deployed to expand or replace legacy network, MPLS, SD-WAN and VPN solutions with security functions such as secure web gateways, cloud access security brokers, firewalls, and zero-trust network access.

The Networking Solution that's Affordable, Secure, and Simple

The world’s best SASE platform

The Cato solution converges global SD-WAN and network security into a centrally managed cloud service. Cato enables you to simplify individual security instances and gives you the ability to have a single point of control for all security services. Cato allows you to move away from legacy network architecture or expensive MPLS into a single unified, affordable network.

CATO Networks Delivers Next-Generation WAN Solutions

Where do you want to start?

MPLS Migration to SD-WAN

Cato assists in reducing costs and complexities associated with MPLS. No longer do you need to be tied into a single ISP. Cato provides the ability to use the best ISP for your region to connect into the Cato global private backbone helping you reduce costs, increase service levels, improve performance and deliver security everywhere.

Optimised Global Connectivity

By utilising Cato’s global private backbone, enterprises are able to achieve predictable and accelerated access to on premise and cloud services by eliminating the issues associated with high latency and packet loss. Cato’s cloud optimisation and built in WAN drastically improves the network experience everywhere.

Secure Branch Internet Access

Eliminate the cost and complexity associated with managing security and network solutions at branch locations. Centrally manage all security and networking by connecting all locations into the Cato cloud through Cato Socket SD-WAN devices, thereby eliminating the need for local firewalls. Reduce complexity, increase security and save costs.

Cloud Acceleration and Control

Cato PoPs are located in the same datacentres as the major cloud providers such as Microsoft, AWS & Google which means that latency between Cato and these providers is virtually zero. Cato routes traffic from any location to the PoP closest to the cloud destination resulting in accelerated cloud access and improved user experience. There is no need to install virtual appliances or set up hubs to reduce latency to the cloud.

Mobile Security and Optimisation

Cato’s network security stack enforces corporate security policies and protects remote users against threats. Users automatically connect to the nearest Cato PoP using a Cato Client or clientless browser. Whether a user is in the office or remote all the same security and networking policies remain identical resulting in a secure, optimised experience for the end user and reduced complexity for network administrators.

SASE Architectural Tributes

SASE architecture is marked by four main attributes. It is identity-driven, cloud-native, supports all edges, and is distributed globally.

Identity-driven

Cato applies security and networking policies based on user identity rather than IP addresses. This assists in reducing complexity for the end user and reducing network administration while delivering a single set of policies to all users irrespective of device or location.

Cloud-native

SASE is a cloud-first and cloud-native architecture. All networking and security functions are implemented in the cloud. Only capabilities that must be deployed at the edge, are delivered as simple edge clients. SASE architecture leverages key cloud capabilities including elasticity, adaptability, self-healing, and self-maintenance to uniformly deliver security and networking capabilities across the enterprise.

CATO

Supports All Edges

SASE creates one secure network for all company entities – datacentres, branch offices, cloud resources, and mobile users. For example, SD-WAN appliances support physical edges while mobile clients and clientless browser access connect users on the go, and while working from home.

CATO

Globally Distributed

To ensure full networking and security capabilities are available everywhere and deliver the best possible experience to all edges, the SASE cloud is globally distributed across dozens of Point of Presence (PoPs). Enterprise edges connect to the nearest PoP so all traffic is secured and optimised at the PoP and across the global backbone of PoPs to its destination.

Discover the Power of CATO SASE Architecture

SASE architecture is built for full visibility to all traffic from all edges – physical, cloud, and mobile –including traffic between the edges (WAN), and from the edges to the Internet. SASE applies a rich set of security and networking engines on that traffic, for full inspection for threat prevention and access control. This is why SASE has been described by Gartner as the future of networking and security.
