Implement a global cloud-native SASE solution that converges networking, access, and security for simplicity, agility, scalability, and cost savings.
Unified Networking and Security
Achieve complete visibility and control with Cato’s SASE platform, which consolidates networking and security capabilities. This includes Secure Web Gateway (SWG), Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Zero Trust Network Access, (ZTNA), Software-defined Perimeter (SDP), Data Loss Protection (DLP), Remote Browser Isolation (RBI), and Firewall as a Service (FWaaS) with Advanced Threat Prevention (IPS, Next Generation Anti-malware), all within a unified architecture.
Additionally, since Cato operates on a distributed, cloud-native architecture, all security functions are performed locally at every Point of Presence (PoP). This eliminates the latency introduced by legacy networks that backhauling traffic for security inspection.
Zero Touch SD WAN Devices
The Cato Socket SD WAN device connects physical locations to the nearest Cato PoP via one or more last mile connections. Customers have the flexibility to choose any combination of fibre, cable, xDSL, and 4G/LTE connections. The Socket can also route site-to-site traffic over MPLS and the Internet, addressing regional and application-specific requirements.
Capacity and Reliability
Cato Sockets empower networks with support for multiple transports in an Active/Active configuration, guaranteeing high availability while effectively mitigating packet loss to achieve optimal network performance.
Performance and Intelligence
Cato Sockets deliver a holistic solution by integrating application and identity awareness, dynamic path selection, Quality of Service (QoS) prioritisation, and end-to-end optimisation. This enables the system to adapt to link blackouts and brownouts and employ packet duplication to overcome packet loss.
Cato Sockets streamline the user experience with features like zero-touch provisioning, a single pane of glass management interface, real-time analytics, and BGP dynamic routing. This enables simplified deployment, centralised control, actionable insights, and efficient network routing.
Cato simplifies the process of connecting to cloud service providers, enabling enterprises to integrate cloud data centres with their networks in a cost effective, secure, and optimised manner. This is achieved through integration with major cloud service providers, including AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud, using secure IPSec tunnels or a Cato vSocket virtual appliance.
Deployment is fast and simple, and connecting a cloud data centre to Cato takes just minutes. All traffic to and from the cloud data centre undergoes full security inspection by Cato’s built-in security stack, SSE 360, and is optimally routed from the edge to the cloud service providers.
Cato Networks’ solution enhances network performance through a unique multi-segment optimisation approach. By combining last and middle mile optimisation, traffic is efficiently routed to its destination over a global private backbone, accelerating both WAN and cloud connectivity and maximising end-to-end throughput. This ensures that users can access business-critical resources swiftly, improving productivity and enhancing the end-user experience.
