Buyers are finding their legacy WAN architectures were not designed to connect users to cloud applications.  SD-WAN is providing much needed scalability for bandwidth capacity and versatility to design optimal routes that connect users to the cloud. But even then, SD-WAN solutions do not address global latency optimization, branch office security when accessing the cloud, and support for mobile users.

Tolly recently spoke with Dave Greenfield, secure networking evangelist at Cato Networks, regarding its Cato Cloud, a cloud-based and secure global SD-WAN. Cato delivers an integrated networking and security platform that securely connects all enterprise locations, people and data. The Cato Cloud augments or replaces MPLS, eliminates branch appliances, provides direct, secure Internet access everywhere, and seamlessly integrates mobile users and cloud infrastructures into the enterprise network.

Cato Networks is based in Tel Aviv, Israel. The company was founded in 2015 by cybersecurity luminary Shlomo Kramer, who previously cofounded Check Point Software Technologies and Imperva, and Gur Shatz, who previously cofounded Incapsula.

Cato offers the Cato Cloud in three editions: Secure Network, SD-WAN, and Secure Web Gateway:

  • Cato Secure Network connects all enterprise resources (branches, mobile users, and cloud infrastructure) into a global, SLA-backed WAN secures all traffic over the WAN and to the Internet.
  • Cato SD-WAN connects all enterprise resources into a global, SLA-backed wide area network supporting any underlying transports, such as Internet, MPLS, and 4G.
  • Cato Secure Web Gateway secures access from enterprise resources to the Internet.

To understand the approach and architecture of the Cato Cloud please see the below graphic:
