Cato provides a converged SD-WAN and network security as a global cloud service. Aligned with Gartner’s Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) framework, Cato Cloud connects all data centers, branches, mobile users, and cloud resources into an agile and secure global network. Our service empowers you to connect, secure, and run the network yourself, and supports you with expert managed services if you need them. Cato’s cloud-native architecture delivers a future-proof network that evolves at the pace of your business. With Cato, your network, and your business, are ready for whatever comes next.

Security Hardware and Technologies

Security-as-a-Service

Imagine not being burdened with network security sizing and scaling, or having to perform resource-intensive upgrades and updates.

Cato Networks provides a global and secure managed SD-WAN Service — the Cato Cloud. Cato’s unique characteristic is the convergence of the networking and security pillars into a single platform. Convergence enables Cato to collapse multiple security solutions such as an application-aware next-generation firewall-as-a-Service (FWaaS), secure web gateway with URL filtering (SWG), standard and next-generation anti-virus anti-malware (AM & NGAV), and a managed IPS-as-a-Service (IPS). Cato can further secure your network with a comprehensive Managed Threat Detection and Response (MDR) service to detect compromised endpoints.
All traffic passing to Cato’s licensed security services will be handled according to the customer-specific security policy while Cato is taking care of the underlying infrastructure.

Cato Research Labs security experts continuously monitor, analyze and tune all the security engines, risk data feeds, and databases to optimize customer protection.

SDNs, SD-WANs and WAN Optimization

Unsecured data over MPLS. Ignored mobile users. Inflated bandwidth costs. Degraded cloud performance. Limited agility.

SD-WAN (Software-Defined Wide Area Network) is a new secure, global way to manage and optimize a WAN.  It was created to overcome the high bandwidth costs and the rigidity of MPLS services, by incorporating Internet transports (such as Cable, DSL, Fiber and 4G) into the WAN and forming a virtual overlay across all transports.
The SD-WAN measures the real-time transport quality (latency and packet loss) and uses Policy-based Routing to route application-specific traffic over the most appropriate transport.
Secure, global SD-WAN as a Service provides the core benefits of SD-WAN while enabling secure direct internet access, SLA-backed connectivity, and seamless extension of the WAN to cloud data centers and mobile users.
