The Cato Cloud Network is built on a globally distributed network of Points of Presence (PoPs). The PoPs are interconnected with an encrypted and optimized multi-carrier private backbone, to ensure optimal global traffic routing. The Cato Cloud Network provides an affordable, SLA-backed global enterprise network backbone.
Cato holistically connects all network elements including branches, mobile users, physical and cloud datacentres - securely and with MPLS-like latency.
Enterprises are dependent on high cost and bandwidth-constrained MPLS links. Strategies to augment MPLS-based WAN connectivity with affordable, high capacity internet links are now commonplace.
Cato enables organisations to offload MPLS traffic, specifically internet-bound traffic, to the Cato Cloud. Cato uniquely provides built-in network security for direct secure internet access, SLA-backed WAN for MPLS replacement and secure connectivity for cloud infrastructure and mobile users.
It is not uncommon for a business to spend six times more on office and staff connectivity than it does on cyber security. As such, Cato users can achieve astonishingly rapid return on investment.
Migrating parts of a datacentre to the cloud can fragment access controls and security policies. This separation complicates policy management and obscures overall visibility.
Cato, on the other hand, provides simple integration of physical and cloud datacenters. It seamlessly extends corporate access control and security policies to cloud infrastructures, enabling unified management of both physical and cloud-based resources.
Cato eliminates dedicated branch office equipment such as UTMs, Firewalls and WAN optimisation appliances. Cato protects all connected locations and seamlessly scales to secure all traffic, without the need for unplanned hardware upgrades and resource-intensive software patches. Cato delivers continuous, up-to-date protection without any customer involvement.
Cato connects all branch offices and remote locations to the Cato Cloud, providing enterprise-grade network security for any location, without the need for dedicated appliances or traffic backhauling.
Cato connects every mobile user to the Cato Cloud and provides secure and optimised access to enterprise resources in physical and cloud datacenters, cloud applications and internet sites. With compatible cloud applications, it is possible to restrict access to the Cato Cloud IP range, so stolen credentials cannot be used to access enterprise data in the cloud.
All mobile access is protected against malicious web sites. Corporate security policies are seamlessly extended to control mobile access to sensitive data, both on-premises and in the cloud.
LAN3's monitoring and mangement service extends to the Cato services administered in the Cloud. Cato customers can reduce the workload of administering their Wide Area Network and Security suite by outsourcing the responsibility to LAN3's SOC in Oxfordshire.
"LAN3 is key partner for Cato Networks in the UK. Bringing a new technology to market requires focus, dedication and enthusiasm, all of which LAN3 have repeatedly demonstrated. Cato Networks have a service that fully complements LAN3’s existing offering, as such Cato is very excited about the technology partnership and have no doubts in their ability to thrive in this marketplace."
