UniVoIP and Cato Networks Partner to Provide Customers with Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) via Cato’s Global SASE Platform
Offering a new way to optimize and manage Wide Area Network, UniVoIP customers can replace expensive global Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) – reducing costs and complexity, while also reducing risk and delivering optimal user experiences.
UniVoIP, a pioneering leader in Hosted VoIP and Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) solutions, is thrilled to announce a partnership with Cato Networks. Offering end-to-end route optimization for Wide Area Network (WAN) and cloud traffic, UniVoIP customers are now able to replace expensive and capacity-constrained Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) with Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN), a more secure, flexible and cost-effective solution – delivered via Cato’s native SASE (Secure Access Service Edge) platform.
Designed to address the modern use of enterprise networks as the necessity of cloud computing and mobile devices continues to grow, UniVoIP’s cloud-based SD-WAN connectivity offering enables UniVoIP customers to support a distributed and mobile workforce more efficiently – optimizing user experiences while also elevating security posture. “We are thrilled to be offering our customers a large network of globally-distributed points-of-presence (PoPs) that will allow for a high performing, secure network regardless of location,” says Dean Manzoori, Chief Technology Officer.
By converging networking and security functionality, Cato’s SASE platform eliminates the need to deploy extensive point security products at branch locations, while delivering integrated, centralized management and full visibility of a high-performance secure network. With full scaling capabilities, enterprises leveraging SASE experience simplified maintenance and management, as well as expedited provisioning.
