  • SASE: Networking and Security Architecture for the post COVID-19 World Apr 12 2021 11:15 am UTC 51 mins
    Roy Chua, founder and principal of AvidThink
    Businesses are in the midst of a massive transformation of legacy MPLS and VPN-based networks to cloud-first and work-from-anywhere architecture. Multiple technologies are being introduced to support this transformation: SD-WAN, Firewall as a Service (FWaaS), Secure Web Gateways (SWG), and Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA). Most recently, a new architecture has emerged, that is converging all these capabilities into a single platform: The Secure Access Service Edge (SASE). 

    IT executives and professionals, like yourself, are asking: what is SASE and how does it enable our WAN transformation initiatives? And, how can it support business access requirements during and after COVID-19? 

    We want to invite you to an educational and insightful webinar to discuss these questions.

    Join Roy Chua, Founder and Principal at AvidThink, and Yishay Yovel, CMO at Cato Networks to learn:  

    - The drivers for WAN transformation and the impact of COVID-19 on IT priorities 
    - The key attributes and primary use cases of a true SASE platform
    - When to adopt SASE and what are key considerations 
    - An architectural and functional overview of the Cato Cloud SASE platform 
    - How Cato enables a seamless, secure, and optimal application access from anywhere
    - Customer case studies highlighting the benefits of deploying Cato Cloud
  • What SD-WAN Vendors Won’t Tell You About SD-WAN Apr 5 2021 1:00 pm UTC 36 mins
    Steve Garson is the president and founder of SD-WAN Experts.
    What SD-WAN Vendors Won’t Tell You About SD-WAN

    Cut WAN costs, improve performance, increase security — SD-WAN seems to do everything right, but is it too perfect? Find out as we take a hard look at the myths and realities of SD-WAN.



    In our next webinar, long-time WAN consultant, Steve Garson, president of SD-WAN Experts, speaks with Dave Greenfield, Cato’s secure networking evangelist, about the truth and fiction of SD-WAN.



    Join us for a free-wheeling, no holds barred conversation into SD-WAN’s dirty little secrets including:

    Why SD-WAN won’t improve your network performance

    Why reducing WAN costs isn’t a realistic goal for most SD-WAN deployment — and why that shouldn’t matter

    When you need a provider to run your SD-WAN service.

    What SD-WAN vendors mean when they say “security,” and why that’s still not enough security for your organization
  • SD-WAN for the Office vs. SASE for Everywhere Ask me Anything Mar 15 2021 2:00 pm UTC 40 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?
  • 5 MPLS Migration Challenges SD-WAN Solves Mar 8 2021 2:00 pm UTC 52 mins
    Yishay Yovel, Chief Marketing Officer at Cato Networks
    It’s no secret that enterprises are looking beyond MPLS for their new WANs. For some, it’s the rigidity and high costs of MPLS services; for others, it’s MPLS’s complexity and incompatibility with the cloud. But how exactly will migrating to SD-WAN help you overcome MPLS’s limitations?

    Find out on our next webinar, as Yishay Yovel, Chief Marketing Officer at Cato Networks shares the stories of businesses from around the globe who made the transition to SD-WAN.

    Join us to hear:

    - How DSM Pharmaceuticals and Fisher & Company solve global latency issues without paying through the nose.
    - The ways UMHS and Pet Lovers Center, with its 100+ site Cato implementation, deliver direct, secure Internet access without deploying a heap of branch office security appliances.
    - What Brady PLC and Adroll did to optimize cloud access at the branch and on the road.
    - How companies reduce costs and optimize global voice and UCaaS delivery without relinquishing the control of MPLS.
  • [Ep.1]: Introducing SASE: The Secure Network for the Digital Business Mar 4 2021 3:00 pm UTC 60 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 and security leaders to get acquainted with what the SASE security model can do for their businesses.

    SASE has emerged from the fact that current network solutions and technologies no longer provide the security and access control that companies in the digital age not just need, but demand. With increased remote working due to the pandemic, more organizations than ever are ‘always on’ and using the cloud, and so a Zero-Trust approach is now a must. With users requiring uninterrupted, secure and instant access to their SaaS applications and digital services, SASE has risen to meet this need.

    In episode 1 of Cato’s 'Superpowered SASE: Network Transformation in 2021' series, we’re bringing together SASE experts to share 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
    - And more

  • The Ultimate SASE Checklist Recorded: Feb 1 2021 49 mins
    Yishay Yovel, CMO at Cato Networks
    Since it was launched in July 2019, Gartner’s new IT transformational category, the Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), has drawn the attention of many IT leaders. SASE is charting a new direction for networking and security for enterprises of all sizes. But, why do we need a new category? Because deploying point products to address emerging connectivity, security, cloud, and mobility requirements at a global scale is not sustainable. A case in point, SASE is a perfect platform to seamlessly address the emerging work-from-home requirement, something current legacy technologies struggle to achieve. Per Gartner, a new architecture is needed, and that architecture is at the core of SASE

    In this webinar we will answer the key questions on what SASE is and what are the core components of a SASE architecture are.

    Join Yishay Yovel, Chief Marketing Officer at Cato Networks, to learn:

    - The drivers for SASE and why Gartner thinks it will transform IT
