Versa Networks Earns Frost & Sullivan’s 2022 SASE Global Enabling Technology Leadership Award for its Industry-Leading SASE Solution

January 2023 by Marc Jacob

 Versa Networks announced it has earned the
SASE Global Enabling Technology Leadership Award for its industry-leading SASE solution from Frost & Sullivan, a leading industry analyst firm
at the center of an ecosystem of best practice cultivation, executive peer support, and cutting-edge insights that is singularly focused on reshaping the world through managed growth. 

According to Frost & Sullivan, "Versa is the preferred choice in terms
of securing SD-WAN and SSE as it offers flexibility in deploying its converged SASE platform, either through on-premises, public cloud, or as a cloud-delivered service, while many other SASE solutions are offered only as cloud-based services or a combination
of different components, including hardware and service chaining. In contrast to traditional security vendors’ SASE offerings that are either re-architected or built from the acquisitions of multiple mature products and provided as point products (à la carte)
or in the form of service chaining with other third-party solutions, Versa provides a unified, identity-aware, context-driven, and globally distributed software platform. The company’s SASE services are tightly integrated within a single software stack managed
by a single pane of glass." 

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents the Global Enabling Technology Leadership Award to a company that has developed a pioneering technology that not only enhances current products, but
also enables the development of new products and applications. For the 2022 SASE Global Enabling Technology Leadership Award, Frost & Sullivan analysts independently evaluated eight leading SASE providers on the following criteria: 

Technology Leverage – Commitment to Innovation, Commitment to
Creativity, Stage Gate Efficiency, Commercialization Success, and Application Diversity 

Customer Impact – Price/Performance Value, Customer Purchase
Experience, Customer Ownership Experience, Customer Service Experience, and Brand Equity 


With thousands of customers, hundreds of thousands of sites, and a significant number of very large financial institution, retailer, manufacturer, high-tech company, public sector, and
healthcare customers, Versa has demonstrated that it is the leader in mission critical networks of large global WAN, remote worker, cloud-first, and security-sensitive SASE deployments. 


According to Frost & Sullivan, "Versa is also committed to technology
innovation and creativity, and it continuously invests in and makes technology enhancements to its security services, including Versa sandboxing infrastructure, DLP, CASB (Inline and API based), remote browser isolation (RBI), and domain name system (DNS)
tunnelling detection, which provide better threat protection, detection and response capabilities. Frost & Sullivan applauds Versa’s creativity to add Cloud Workload Security, Cloud Security Posture Management and SaaS Security Posture Management to its platform.
Most of the company’s competitors do not offer these functionalities or offer them as separate solutions. Versa has also added artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) to its software platform to boost anomaly detection, risk remediation and automation." 


"Considering Versa is the pioneer of the unified SASE space, and its technology lead and rapid customer growth, it is gratifying to be recognized as the SASE global enabling technology
leader by Frost & Sullivan," said Apurva Mehta, Versa Networks Co-Founder and CTO. "Versa’s feature-rich SASE solution with tightly integrated security and networking, deployment flexibility and cloud onramp, combined with our natural language processing (NLP)
and AI/ML-based anomaly detection, troubleshooting, and prediction capabilities is proven critical for organizations as they map their direction to SASE. Versa has a strong unified SASE product that appeals to most organizations looking for a cloud-native
security provider. Versa has a strong mind share which results in Versa appearing frequently on SSE selection shortlists." 


Versa’s single-vendor Unified SASE delivers organically developed best-of-breed functions that tightly integrate and deliver services via the cloud, on-premises, or as a blended combination
of both, managed through a single pane of glass. Versa delivers SASE services such as Secure SD-WAN, Next-Generation Firewall, Next-Generation Firewall as a Service,
Cloud Network Firewall, Unified Threat Management (UTM)
including Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), Secure Web Gateway (SWG), Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Data Loss Prevention (DLP), Remote Browser Isolation (RBI), and User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA). Versa’s
single-vendor SASE platform goes above and beyond management console automation integration by providing the ability to integrate networks, points of presence, policy definitions, application definitions, agent logic, and data lakes.
