Windstream Enterprise (WE) has launched Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) and Security Service Edge (SSE) solutions powered by Cato Networks for U.S.-based companies that operate internationally. Through these solutions, customers with a worldwide footprint gain access to a single, integrated network security infrastructure to protect their data, resources and employees domestically and overseas. This gives customers the assurance that all of their locations are secure in whichever country they operate.
Windstream Enterprise’s cloud-native and fully managed SASE and SSE services, powered by Cato SASE Cloud, leverage Cato Networks’ dedicated, private backbone with more than 80 points of presence (PoPs) worldwide to provide users everywhere with optimized secure access to corporate resources and websites. Security has become more effective and easier to maintain because SASE from Windstream Enterprise unifies security policies governing users in and out of the office, regardless of device or location—domestically and internationally.
Windstream Enterprise is the first North American-based managed service provider to offer this international solution.
As part of the global SASE and SSE offerings, organizations also gain access to Windstream Enterprise’s WE Connect customer portal for monitoring, configuring, analyzing and automating every element of their network and its security framework, including:
Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN)
Firewall as a Service (FwaaS)
Secure Web Gateway (SWG)
Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA)
Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB)
Data Loss Prevention (DLP)
Next-Gen Anti-Malware (NGAM)
Intrusion Prevention System (IPS)
Managed Detection & Response (MDR)
Remote Browser Interface (RBI)
“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.”
