Is your network complexity overloading IT and slowing down the business?
It is time to make the network simple!
Managing complex networks built with multiple third-party products is not just difficult it is a headache.
And, outsourcing complexity to a Telco results in a slow and rigid service. Why? because the Telcos, like your IT team, have to manage and support products they don’t own or control.
Secure Access Service Edge (SaSe) means a cloud first, secure agile business, a necessity with the high demands of cloud based workloads.
With FocusNet's converged SaSe cloud service not only is it more affordable, innovation happens at cloud-speed and expert support is always there.
We Have The Only Secure SaSe SD-WAN Service Designed For The Digital Business
Secure Access Service Edge, or SaSe as Gartner now refers to it, is the fusion of security into Software Defined WAN solutions. FocusNet underpinned by CATO Networks is empowering enterprises with the visibility and control they need to connect, secure, and run their networks, with the support of expert managed services.
A managed SaSe SD-WAN service enables businesses to move away from a network built with rigid and expensive MPLS services along with a bundle of complicated solutions to a simple, agile, and affordable network.
With FocusNet you have the power to connect all enterprise network resources, such as branch locations, the mobile workforce, physical and cloud data-centres, into a single global and secure, managed SaSe SD-WAN service.
Security as a Service
FocusNet's Security as a Service enables networking and security teams effectively protect the corporate network from today's rapidly changing threat landscape.
Our unique characteristic is the convergence of the networking and security pillars into a single platform.
Convergence enables the collapse of multiple security solutions such as a next generation firewall, secure web gateway, anti-malware, and IPS into a cloud service that enforces a unified policy across all corporate locations, users and data.
Advantages of a converged service
As a managed service, customers are relieved of the burden of upgrades and updates - a big resource hog. Additionally customers don’t need to size or scale network security.
All traffic passing to FocusNet's licensed security services will be handled according to the customer-specific security policy while FocusNet is taking care of the underlying infrastructure.
As part of the service a dedicated research team of experts continually monitor, analyze and tune all the security engines, risk data feeds, and databases to optimize customer protection.
FocusNet's Security as a Service enables organizations of all sizes to apply enterprise-grade traffic everywhere. Data centers, branches, mobile users, and cloud resources can be protected under a unified policy and with the same set of defenses.
This managed SaSe SD-WAN service seamlessly optimizes and adapts security controls for emerging threats without any customer involvement. Traditional chores associated with appliance-based security, such as capacity planning, sizing, upgrades, and patches, are no longer needed, offloading that responsibility from security teams.
Mobility in mind
Mobile users were always an afterthought from a network design perspective so they are not supported by MPLS and SD-WANs. But they are now a major part of how business is done and Cloud SaSe SD-WANs support them as part of the core WAN architecture.
FocusNet's managed service extends the full range of its network and security capabilities down to the mobile user.
All user activity is protected by the built-in network security stack, ensuring enterprise-grade protection to all users everywhere.
“Even with a large telco and lots of backup lines, we found that our MPLS went down too often. When there was an outage it could take up to two days to get up and running again. The business is moving very fast. Now with Cato we can match that speed on the network side”
– David Brouwers, IT Infrastructure Manager at New Wave Group
“ One of the big benefits of Cato SD-WAN is that you don’t need extremely expensive hardware to build your connections. As a matter of fact, we have even better experience with basic equipment than with very advanced. The Cato software takes care of all intelligence around things like VPNs and firewalls.”
– Jeroen Keet, Senior Network and System Architect, Kyocera Senco
“ Cato is the Apple of SD-WANs. You give an iPad to a one-year-old and watch him browse through the apps. That's what I see with Cato. As soon as my network engineer logged-into the management system, he was a master in 10 minutes.”
– IT Manager at EduTech
“ Now our inventory database stays current because with Cato our connectivity is so solid. If there’s a brownout or even a blackout on one line, Cato auto-connects by itself ”
– Mike Zidaj, IT Manager at Aquila
