As more and more businesses begin to embrace the power of the cloud, the requirements are changing on a daily basis, making them an instant hit with the customers. While the cloud has become a thing of the future, there is an extreme focus on how the traditional WANs can be converted into software-defined WAN networks, to increase efficiency and effectiveness.
“The rise of cloud applications and the mobile workforce is changing the shape of business and legacy network traffic patterns, rendering the Wide Area Network (WAN) and network security appliances incompatible with today’s business needs,” says Shlomo Kramer, co-founder and CEO of Cato Networks.

Being a well-known service provider, they have redefined the way businesses connect to the Cloud and have initiated a revolution in the market. In fact, they are in the forefront when it comes to enhancing networking by coupling it with network security. By combining network savings and security measurements, Cato has been able to bring about a cloud transformation, which has brought about massive shifts in the IT infrastructure about user-based applications, storage as well as computing techniques.
At Cato, the networking and security experts are always on the lookout for something meaningful. By converging next-generation firewall (NGFW), IPS, secure web gateway (SWG) and other network security services with access (Internet or MPLS) and an SLA-backed backbone , Cato has been able to streamline IT infrastructure, reducing costs and implementing simplicity in a convenient manner. The Cato Cloud provides WAN connectivity and Internet security along with better visibility and control over their immediate functioning environment.
