I have no hesitation at all in recommending LAN3 and CATO to deliver a wide area network for a business of any size. Our pilot test phase was both simple and reassuring, we quickly rolled out the CATO solution throughout our UK network of branch offices. This was managed by LAN3's project team and we have access to excellent support from LAN3 and CATO on the very rare occasion we require it. We have integrated our new SD-WAN with both Azure and AWS cloud service environments.

Cato in a Nutshell

Cato enables customers to move away from expensive, rigid, and capacity-constrained MPLS networks to a combination of high-capacity Internet links and the Cato Cloud. Using Cato Socket edge SD-WAN appliances, customers boost usable capacity and improve resiliency at a lower cost per megabit. Customers with a global footprint, leverage Cato’s affordable global private backbone to replace global MPLS and the unpredictable Internet. The Cato Cloud optimises performance and maximises the throughput to on-premises and cloud applications.

Cato - SASE

Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) is a new enterprise networking technology category introduced by Gartner in 2019. SASE converges the functions of network and security point solutions into a unified, global cloud-native service. It is an architectural transformation of enterprise networking and security that enables IT to provide a holistic, agile and adaptable service to the digital business. What makes SASE unique is its transformational impact across a spectrum of IT domains.





Solving emerging business challenges with point solutions leads to technical silos that are complex and costly to own and manage. Complexity slows down IT and its response to these business needs. SASE changes this paradigm through a new networking and security platform that is identity-driven, cloud-native, globally distributed, and securely connects all edges (WAN, cloud, mobile, and IoT).

With SASE, enterprises can reduce the time to develop new products, deliver them to the market, and respond to changes in business conditions or the competitive landscape.
