Windstream Enterprise's SASE and SSE Cybersecurity Solutions Go Global with MSP Expo Sponsor Cato Networks

Implementing a consolidated, single-vendor security offering brings various advantages to enterprises. Probably one of the more significant advantages is that it provides a streamlined and efficient solution that simplifies the management of a company's security infrastructure, especially for companies that operate internationally.

According to research conducted by Gartner, plenty of organizations were actively pursuing security vendor consolidation in 2022. This trend underscores the increasing recognition among businesses of the value of unifying their security measures under a single umbrella.

SASE and SSE solutions can help U.S.-based enterprises (as well as their international branches) address the security challenges that arise from running global operations on disparate networks. Organizations can establish a common set of security policies and a unified security framework that spans their domestic and international operations. This not only enhances security but also simplifies network management and improves overall operational efficiency, aligning with the demands of modern, agile and globally distributed businesses.

Windstream Enterprise, an IT managed services provider, understands this and announced that its SASE and SSE solutions, powered by MSP Expo sponsor Cato Networks, are available for U.S.-based companies that operate internationally. Customers now gain access to a single, integrated network security infrastructure to protect their data, resources and employees domestically and overseas.

“Many companies based in the U.S. that operate internationally are relying on multiple security solutions, which creates vulnerabilities in their networks and increases management headaches,” said Art Nichols, Chief Technology Officer, Windstream Enterprise. “By unifying network and security components across borders with Cato, these enterprises get a more reliable, secure network with the added benefit of reduced management needs.”

Windstream Enterprise's cloud-native and fully managed SASE and SSE services, powered by Cato SASE Cloud, ensures secure and optimized access to corporate resources and websites for users globally. Windstream Enterprise SASE and SSE are supported by the company’s Cyber Security Operations Center, which is staffed by a team of dedicated security experts who monitor, protect and troubleshoot customers’ IT infrastructure.

“With the Cato SASE platform, IT teams are ready to meet the security and network challenges of the digital business anywhere and without compromise,” said Shlomo Kramer, co-founder and CEO of Cato.

Organizations that adopt these global SASE and SSE services gain access to the WE Connect customer portal, a comprehensive platform for monitoring, configuring, analyzing, and automating various network and security elements. This integrated environment includes features such as SD-WAN, firewall as a service, ZTNA and managed detection and response, which lets organizations efficiently manage and secure their networks and data on a global scale.

Additionally, Windstream Enterprise’s uptime guarantees and professional services help deliver the expert technical resources that allow enterprises to implement, operate and optimize this technology for their specific needs.

“Our partnership with Windstream Enterprise is giving enterprises that need to operate internationally the best of both worlds — leading security technology coupled with leading IT managed services,” said Kramer

These solutions provide global organizations with a unified network security system to safeguard their data, assets, and workforce, both at home and abroad. This ensures that all their locations, regardless of the country of operation, are consistently and comprehensively protected.

Cato Networks is a Gold sponsor of MSP Expo, taking place in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, February 13-15, 2024. Part of the #TECHSUPERSHOW, MSP Expo is the premier event for MSPs, offering a three-day experience combining conference education, networking opportunities, an exhibit hall full of the latest technologies and solutions to help MSPs build their business, and more. Cato Networks will be in booth #543 in the exhibit hall.
