The new features and services Versa’s SD-WAN provides
Versa has recently unveiled updates to their SD-WAN and SASE solutions.
Some of the new features and services Versa’s SD-WAN solution offers to improve your organization's network performance include:
SD-LAN is a new application of software-defined networking principles for the non-data center Local Area Network (LAN).
A LAN is a network of interconnected computers and other devices in a limited geographic area such as a home or office.
LANs are used to facilitate communication and the sharing of data and resources among connected devices.
SD-LAN solutions enhance the agility and flexibility of traditional LANs by enabling the user to centralize network management by leveraging software-defined technologies.
SD-WIFI enables your organization to use a single pane of glass to manage and control your entire network from a single platform.
This enables your team to centrally manage and monitor your WiFi network all from one place.
This makes it easy to monitor, troubleshoot, and identify network issues and attacks all from one platform.
SD-NIC is a software solution that extends the network security perimeter onto computers and other devices connected to a network so your organization can implement more effective security solutions such as ZTNA.
SD-NIC is similar to SASE in that it implements a more sophisticated security model by protecting devices and not just the perimeter of the network.
This is effective in providing a better network solution that secures the network where users are working remotely.
Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) is a security method that requires verification from anyone looking to access resources on a network.
This method is a solution that fixes some of the shortcomings of the perimeter-based network security model.
Firewalls protect the edge of your network and differentiate between trusted and untrusted users to protect your network. However, once your network is compromised, it is no longer trusted.
To combat this, ZTNA takes the approach that there is no trusted network and takes the approach that every network is untrusted.
ZTNA by itself does not secure the network. It assumes that the network is a fundamentally insecure place and uses principles like Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) to provide security.
Trusting endpoints is how ZTNA secures the network instead of segregating the world into users that you can trust and ones that you can’t trust.
Is Versa’s updated SD-WAN solution right for your organization?
Now you are aware of some of the new features and services Versa’s SD-WAN solution offers. This will help you decide whether your organization should invest in an updated SD-WAN solution.
SD-WAN is a good investment no matter whose solution you select.
However, if your organization needs a more complete solution that includes better network security and an easier way to monitor and see into your network, investing in updated Versa technology version with Coeo may be the best choice for your organization.
So, if your employees have experienced network latency through slow load page times and call breakups or drops, an updated SD-WAN solution may solve these challenges.
Additionally, if your network is at risk for or has experienced a recent cyberattack, Versa’s enhanced SD-WAN solution may provide the security you need.
On the other hand, your organization may already have a reliable and secure network. In this case, Versa’s updated SD-WAN features and services may not be necessary at this time.
However, having the most up-to-date technology will always benefit an organization, especially in today’s evolving world of network and IT technology.
