Versa offers a secure SD-WAN solution, uniting SD-WAN and NGFWaaS.
According to Gartner, "The WAN edge and network security markets will converge into a single market during the next seven to 10 years, dramatically reshaping the competitive landscape. This research guides TSPs in transforming their companies to prosper in this rapidly evolving market."
● Couple of insights from the report we feel can be useful are:
"Customer demands for simplicity, scalability, flexibility, low latency and pervasive security force convergence of the WAN edge and network security markets, creating the secure access service edge (SASE), with a predominantly cloud-based, as-a-service delivery model.
● Gartner clients increasingly are linking WAN transformation and security refresh/transformation projects"
●   As traffic patterns shift due to new application deployment models and as mobile/temporary endpoints became common, forward-leaning organizations have shifted to a light-branch/heavy-cloud approach.
