Whitepaper: A Practical Guide to SASE Migration

by Cato NetworksJan 20, 2021

More and more enterprises are exploring the possibilities of Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), as the best solution for ensuring their business is ready for whatever is next. Migrating an enterprise's network to SASE is a long-term project that presents IT with compelling questions such as: What is the best time to migrate to SASE? How can IT ensure a successful migration? Where will IT find the budget for the migration project?

The importance of successfully migrating to SASE has intensified due to the Covid-19 crisis, and today, more than ever, IT needs a way to respond effectively to sudden changes in the business environment.

This whitepaper, "A Practical Guide to SASE Migration" addresses these challenges and also provides valuable insights on:

  • The value of SASE and key use case examples
  • The signs indicating it's time to start planning a SASE migration
  • Easy-to-follow guidelines for ensuring a successful migration project
  • Pragmatic tips for funding the migration project without additional budget allocation
  • The critical role SASE plays in business continuity

E-Book: What To Consider Before Renewing Your SD-WAN

by Cato NetworksJan 20, 2021

If your SD-WAN is up for renewal — SASE is a POWERFUL alternative.

If you deployed SD-WAN boxes in the past few years, or just considered them, it was probably to cut costs and boost capacity over your old MPLS network. Your network and security needs, however, go way beyond that limited goal.

Customers looked ''beyond the SD-WAN box'' and into a SASE platform to deliver strong security everywhere, improve global latency to cloud and on-premises applications, and extend optimal and secure access to employees in the office and at home. If you also want to achieve these goals, most likely SD-WAN can't get you there.

Real SASE includes a powerful edge SD-WAN feature. But, SASE also converges the security, cloud, global, and remote access capabilities into a single platform needed to support your business today and in the future. You can gradually deploy these capabilities while replacing or coexisting with multiple point solutions, appliances, and cloud services. You will save money, increase agility and responsiveness to the business, get better visibility and control across your entire network, and improve availability and resiliency.

This eBook, ''What to consider before signing or renewing an edge SD-WAN solution'' will help you make an informed decision about the future of your networking and security architecture.

E-Book: The Network for Whatever’s Next; A CxO Guide

by Cato NetworksJan 20, 2021

Is your Network Ready for Whatever's Next?

The business environment is changing dramatically, and you're inevitably faced with a long list of new challenges: Getting products to market quickly, expanding to new regions, integrating acquisitions early, reducing risk, and more.

To address these challenges, you need a network that rapidly adapts to new business requirements and emerging threats. A network that's ready for whatever comes next.

The CxO Guide demonstrates why SASE (Secure Access Service Edge), Gartner's new transformational category, is defining the roadmap for what you need as a business leader to deliver value to your enterprise, today and into the future:

  • Why the enterprise network is critical to business success
  • What SASE is and how it overcomes the limitations of legacy networks
  • What makes SASE so valuable to CEOs, CFOs, CIOs and CISOs?

Your business is changing and so must your network. But what should you be considering when evolving your network? This paper, "MPLS, SD-WAN, and SASE: Understanding the Trade-offs for Your New WAN," will help.

It explains the evolutions of the WAN. The paper also dives into the new Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) architecture and compares SASE with other main architectures for building your network -- MPLS and SD-WAN. Easy-to-read guides summarize each approach when connecting branches to the headquarters and to the cloud.

Read this paper and learn:

  • What is SASE?
  • How MPLS, SD-WAN, Internet, and SASE differ from one another
  • How appliance-based SD-WAN is different from SASE
  • The pros and cons of each architecture

E-Book: The Dark Side of SD-WAN

by Cato NetworksJan 20, 2021

The Dark Side of SD-WAN. Are You Prepared?

Much has been published about how you can benefit from SD-WAN but less has been said about the ways SD-WAN devices are ill-prepared for enterprise challenges. This new eBook, ''The Dark Side of SD-WAN,'' shines the light on both the reasons why to embrace SD-WAN and the risks involved.

Read this eBook and learn about critical lessons for any SD-WAN deployment including:

  • What's missing in MPLS that's driving enterprises to adopt SD-WAN.
  • How last-mile Internet solves a critical problem with MPLS — and opens a host of others.
  • Why SD-WANs stumble in the middle-mile and how to fix it.
  • The security risks SD-WAN poses and how new technology can help.
  • SD-WAN's cloud challenge and how to address it.
