Who is Cato and what is SASE?

Cato is the world’s first SASE platform, converging SD-WAN and network security into a global, cloud-native service.

Cato optimizes and secures application access for all users and locations. Using Cato, customers easily migrate from MPLS to SD-WAN, optimize connectivity to on-premises and cloud applications, enable secure branch Internet access everywhere, and seamlessly integrate cloud datacenters and mobile users into the network with a zero-trust architecture.

With Cato, the network, and your business, are ready for whatever’s next.
