  • [Ep.5] SASE Provider Checklist: Ensuring You’re Making the Right Choice Sep 14 2021 9:00 am UTC 49 mins
    John Burke - CTO, Nemertes and Eyal Webber-Zvik, Vice President of Product Marketing at Cato Networks
    You’ve heard about the benefits of SASE and why it’s the future of network security, and you’re pretty much set on implementing SASE in your organization. The next step in your SASE journey is to find the right service provider.

    Before approaching service providers it’s good to think practically about the key challenges you need to solve when it comes to your company’s specific network and security needs. That still doesn’t answer all the questions though, and businesses need to ensure they’re partnering with the right provider who can provide the best service.

    In Episode 5 of Cato’s ‘Superpowered SASE: Network Transformation in 2021’, we’re discussing what organizations need to look for in a SASE provider and sharing how IT leaders can identify who will deliver the best ROI and service for your business in the long-run.

    Join us as we discuss:
    - What needs to be on your SASE provider checklist
    - What to look for in a partner beyond the technical capabilities
    - An overview of the multiple functionalities of SASE, how they can revolutionise your network security and which service provider delivers the best infrastructure
    - What kind of ROI you can expect from the right provider for you
    - And more
  • [Ep.4] Do All Roads Lead to SASE? Examining the Future of Security Sep 7 2021 9:00 am UTC 42 mins
    John Burke - CTO, Nemertes and Eyal Webber-Zvik, Vice President of Product Marketing at Cato Networks
    For decades, enterprises have designed both their networks and network security around appliances deployed in physical locations. However, increased migration to the cloud and the pandemic-driven shift to ‘working from everywhere’ has rendered these appliance-centric network and security designs obsolete.

    As a result, network security in 2021 needs to stand guard between the user and the resource or application. but too often, appliance-based solutions are forcing IT to choose between security or performance. SASE changes that.

    In episode 4 of Cato’s ‘Turbocharged by SASE: Network Transformation in 2021’ series, we’re looking at how.

    Join us as we discuss:
    - Must network security be cloud-delivered?
    - What is the technology innovation that allows security and performance to coexist in harmony?
    - Is the technology proven? And is it mature?
    - What are the best practices to evaluate SASE for security, and what should I be wary of?

  • Converged SD-WAN and Security for Global Manufacturers Aug 26 2021 11:00 am UTC 59 mins
    Yishay Yovel, CMO at Cato Networks
    Global manufactures everywhere are changing the way they run the business. IT needs to support strategic initiatives such as rapid migration to cloud services, work from anywhere, and cybersecurity risk reduction. At the same time, IT is also required to become leaner, faster, and more agile than ever before.

    This is easier said than done. Manufacturing networks must support mission critical production and business operations with reliable, optimized, and secure connectivity. Yet, a small IT team must to maintain, evolve, and adapt an infrastructure built with expensive and rigid MPLS connectivity, and maintenance-heavy and capacity constraint network security appliances.

    This is why global manufacturers like Dexko Global, Fisher & Co, ASL Aviation, Komax, New Wave Group, and Juki turned to Cato Networks to streamline their WAN and security and optimize costs.

    Based on Gartner’s Secure Access Service Edge framework, Cato Networks provides manufacturers, with a simple, secure, and optimized network built for the digital business.

    Presented by Yishay Yovel, CMO at Cato Networks, this webinar will teach you

    - The challenges faced by global manufacturers looking to evolve their IT infrastructure
    - What converged network, security, cloud and remote access capabilities are available to global manufacturers to address these challenges
    - How the Cato solution helps manufacturers IT to support digital transformation while eliminating complexity and reducing costs


    Who is this webinar for?

    IT leaders and network and security managers, looking to position their teams and infrastructure to readily support the modern global manufacturing business.
  • Ask me anything about SASE Aug 24 2021 11:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Yishay Yovel, CMO at Cato Networks
    What is SASE and why it matters at this time of crisis? IT executives need to move everyone to work from home and keep access secure and optimized – so productivity remains high and costs are controlled.

    Gartner coined the term Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) just a year ago. Gartner didn’t predict it, but SASE is what the doctor ordered for the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead of piling up technologies that only work for people in the office (like MPLS, and SD-WAN), what if we could allow enterprise grade-security and optimized connectivity to everyone and everywhere?

    Let’s talk about the secrets of running a SASE-based WAN transformation. You have questions, and we have answers. Join Yishay Yovel, and special guests, on June 10th for an open-ended Q&A session on everything you wanted to know about SASE.

    Here are few to get you started:

    - I see many vendors and service providers claiming to be SASE. Is this all marketing FUD? What are the key elements of a true SASE architecture?
    - How is SASE different from the typical integration of enterprise point products like SD-WAN, SWG, firewalls, WAN optimizers, and more?
    - I am considering SD-WAN products to transform my network. How does SD-WAN stack up against SASE?
  • [Ep. 2] Using SASE For ZTNA: The Future of IT Architecture Aug 24 2021 9:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Eyal Webber-Zvik - VP, Product Marketing at Cato and John Burke - CTO and Principal Research Analyst, Nemertes Research
    Businesses are continuing to feel the ripple effects of Covid-19, and the pandemic-driven move to more remote, distributed and hybrid workforces - coupled with new demands on digital services and the cloud - continues to complicate and increase security demands. In 2021, maintaining secure remote access while ensuring that your employees have access to the data and information they need to work productively is still top of mind.

    But balancing the need for security with the need for access and agility around digital services is not an easy task. As the world continues to grapple with the changes wrought by the pandemic, how can business and IT leaders best establish a symbiotic relationship between their remote employees and sensitive data? Enter SASE and ZTNA.

    In episode 1 of Cato’s Turbocharged by SASE: Network Transformation in 2021, experts came together to explore what has driven the rise of SASE and to explore the benefits of its adoption. In episode 2, we’re diving deeper into ZTNA, and how exactly SASE and ZTNA are creating the future of cybersecurity.

    Join us to hear:
    - How to leverage SASE for ZTNA
    - What SASE and ZTNA provide to the security stack that point security doesn’t
    - How the convergence of networking and security in SASE strengthens security posture and ZTNA
    - Why Network-as-a-Service is the solution businesses needed to thrive in today’s ‘always on’, cloud-driven and digitally accelerated world
    - How SASE offers a balance between connectivity and security and protection needs
  • SD-WAN for the Office vs. SASE for Everywhere Ask me Anything Aug 17 2021 11:00 am UTC 41 mins
    Eyal Webber-Zvik Vice President of Product Marketing
    Even before COVID-19, Gartner predicted that by 2024, more than 60% of SD-WAN customers will have implemented SASE, compared to 35% in 2020. Why? Because the digital business requires enterprise-grade security and optimized connectivity to everyone, everywhere; and IT can’t deliver this with just SD-WAN, global crisis or not.

    Network solutions designed to support only people in the office are no longer relevant. Unlike SD-WAN, SASE was designed in the cloud, as an agile network infrastructure to support the way business is done today. SASE delivers converged networking and security to all edges and locations. With SASE business continues as usual.

    You probably have some doubts and many questions. Join our open-ended Q&A session, where Eyal Webber-Zvik, Cato’s VP Product Marketing, will relieve any doubts and answer all your questions.

    Here are some examples to get you started: 

    - What exactly is SASE, and how is it different from SD-WAN, SWG, firewalls, WAN optimizers, etc.?  
    - Secure and optimized remote access has become absolutely critical. How does SASE help?
    - Will I need to manage SASE myself, or is it offered as a managed service?
    - SD-WAN reduces MPLS costs, and there’s no way I’m giving that up. Why can’t I just ask my carrier for SASE?
  • [Ep.1] What is SASE?: Introducing the Secure Network for Digital Businesses Aug 17 2021 9:00 am UTC 51 mins
    Yishay Yovel - CMO, Cato Networks and John Burke - CTO and Principal Research Analyst, Nemertes Research
    Secure access service edge or SASE (pronounced “sassy”), is the ‘future of network security in the cloud’ according to Gartner’s report of the same name from August 2019. With Gartner also predicting that “by 2024, at least 40% of enterprises will have explicit strategies to adopt SASE, up from less than 1% at year-end 2018”, it’s safe to say that now is the time for business, technology and security leaders to get acquainted with what the SASE security model can do for their businesses.

    In episode 1 of Cato’s Superpowered SASE: Network Transformation in 2021 series, we’re bringing together SASE experts to share what SASE really is, what’s behind its meteoric rise and what is essential for the modern business to know about this converged, cloud-delivered platform.

    Join us to hear:
    - What SASE is - and what it isn’t
    - What the user, technology and customer benefits of implementing a SASE security model are
    - The trends driving SASE growth and what they mean for the future
    - Essential strategic insights into how best to implement SASE
    - Why SASE is essential for future proofing your network and transforming your IT
  • True SASE in 30 Minutes Aug 11 2021 11:00 am UTC 29 mins
    Yishay Yovel, CMO at Cato Networks
    2020 challenged IT leaders like never before. Many realized their legacy networks – comprised of point solutions – were inadequate to support their digital business needs. Rather than asking if IT could have been better prepared, the question to ask is what type of network will enable IT to address current needs and be ready for 2021 and beyond.



    Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) is, according to Gartner, the future of network and security. Converging SD-WAN and security into a global, cloud-native service, SASE presents “a compelling model that can be partially or fully implemented today.” And, Cato SASE Cloud is the world’s first true SASE platform, which is already implemented successfully across enterprises worldwide.



    Join Yishay Yovel, CMO at Cato Networks, for a quick webinar where he expands on:

    - The key principles set by Gartner for a true SASE service

    - How SASE eliminates the complexity of a rigid and fragmented infrastructure

    - The importance of regaining control of the network to support business growth

    - How to effectively deliver access, connectivity, and security to all users at all locations
