  • DEMO: Hybrid Clouds and SD-WAN in a Snap Jun 18 2020 2:00 pm UTC 17 mins
    Sean McCarthy, head of Cato’s Americas sales engineering team, and Theresa Abbamondi, director of product marketing for Cato
    Connecting a single cloud datacenter instance to a WAN shouldn’t be that big of a deal. But things can quickly get messy when you have to connect that cloud datacenter to multiple branches and across multiple geographies. Complexity grows exponentially when you have to connect multiple cloud providers to the network. Why waste your valuable time with a configuration quagmire?

    Join us for a live demonstration as Sean McCarthy, head of Cato’s Americas sales engineering team, and Theresa Abbamondi, director of product marketing for Cato, team up to show how simple it is to build a hybrid- and multi-cloud environment can be with Cato.

    Join us and learn:

  • Why SASE is the Future of SD-WAN & Security Jun 4 2020 1:00 pm UTC 35 mins
    Eyal Webber-Zvik, Senior Director of Product Marketing and Business Development
    Webinar Overview

    If you're like most IT leaders, you're probably looking to reduce your network costs. But before you get swept up in the cost savings promise of SD-WAN, be sure that SD-WAN can meet the broader needs of your company. Recent research on SD-WAN and SASE suggests that most enterprises focus too much on SD-WAN cost savings, undermining their long-term SD-WAN satisfaction.

    To learn more about what leading companies consider when assessing SD-WAN, watch our webinar, "Why SASE is the Future of SD-WAN & Security," as we hear from Eyal Webber-Zvik, Cato's Senior Director of Product Marketing and Business Development.

    Eyal participated in dozens of SD-WAN evaluations with companies around the globe. He'll share his insights into what these companies consider when they assess SD-WAN, as well as key findings from our recent 2020 Networking Survey. The study evaluates the impact digital transformation has on IT's network confidence with enterprises in the Asia-Pacific and worldwide.

    Join us and receive a copy of the survey report, and also learn:

    - What is SASE and how it differs from SD-WAN
    - Why and where SD-WAN fails as a long-term solution
    - The importance of understanding the broader requirements of digital transformation beyond WAN connectivity
  • How to Transform Your Wide Area Network with SD-WAN Jun 2 2020 2:00 pm UTC 59 mins

  • What is the right Managed SD-WAN Service for you? May 28 2020 1:00 pm UTC 48 mins
    Roy Chua - Founder and principal of AvidThink
    There is an industry-wide agreement that SD-WAN is a great technology for delivering a fast and reliable enterprise network, but what the best way for you to buy, deploy and use SD-WAN?

    You can manage the network yourself, or hand it over to a telco or a service provider. You can use appliance-based architecture you will own and maintain or a cloud-based one where the provider maintained the service, and you control policy and configuration. There are so many options to choose from.

    To find out which option is the right one for your enterprise, join us on our next webinar as we speak with Roy Chua, principle at AvidThink.

    Roy will share findings from his recently completed report on SD-WAN and network as an overlay “Network as an OTT Service – A New Enterprise Option” with Cato’s Senior Director of Product Marketing and Business Development, Eyal Webber-Zvik, and Technology Evangelist, Dave Greenfield. Together they'll explore the need for CNPs and how they address the challenges enterprises face today.
    Join the webinar and learn:

    -What Managed SD-WAN models are available to enterprises today?
    -How the choice of management model impacts network costs, agility, and flexibility?
    -How emerging managed SD-WAN offerings differ from legacy managed network services?
    -How Cato provides a cloud-native SD-WAN with built-in security and a flexible management model

  • [Panel] Digital Transformation and the Need for SD-WAN Recorded: May 20 2020 59 mins
    Moderator: Steve Brumer, BH IoT Group | Yishay Yovel, Cato Networks | Brenden Rawle, Equinix | Patrick Grillo, Fortinet
    To compete in today's digital economy, it's essential that businesses make branch offices an integral part of the network. Cloud-based applications - including global collaboration ones whose use has skyrocketed due to COVID-19 - require bandwidth that is robust and highly scalable, and with data centers becoming more virtualized and distributed than ever, MPLS can no longer cut it.

    With SD-WAN a key part of the puzzle piece of successful Digital Transformation, it’s crucial that business looking to adopt SD-WAN as part of their DX strategy have all bases covered, namely:

    - Ensuring they have a dynamic SD-WAN that recognizes and supports business-critical applications
    - Making sure the have the ability to modify WAN policies to cater for application criticality, performance needs and security requirements
    - Establishing an SD-WAN strategy in the age of the Edge that understands the need for centralized visibility spans the distributed network

    But how do businesses ensure that their SD-WAN strategy and toolkit address the above? Join this panel of experts as they explore the key points of a winning SD network, and help drive your business to Digital Transformation success.

  • Is SASE the future of SD-WAN and Network Security? Recorded: Apr 21 2020 36 mins
    Neil MacDonald, Distinguished VP Analyst at Gartner and Yishay Yovel CMO, Cato Networks
    Gartner recently announced a new market category called SASE which is expected to turn the enterprise network and network security markets upside-down.

    SASE is the convergence of networking and network security markets into a unified cloud platform. SASE is expected to render legacy appliance-based solutions obsolete and poses an existential threat to product bundles offered by telcos.

    SASE will transform multiple product categories such as SD-WAN, WAN Optimization, Next Gen Firewalls, Secure Web Gateways, CASB, and Zero Trust Network Access. IT leaders should understand this critical trend and consider its impact on their network and security architecture.
