SASE-Based Clientless Access Service to Support WFH at Scale

SASE-Based Clientless Access Service to Support WFH at Scale

With Instant Access for Cato SDP, enterprises can deliver large scale, secure, high-performance remote access worldwide at the flip-of-a-switch.

Cato Networks introduced Cato SDP with Instant Access to help IT leaders rapidly deliver WFH solutions at scale worldwide.

“With the global health crisis, enterprises are looking to deploy work-from-home capabilities at scale. Cato has seen remote access adoption more than double since the outbreak of COVID-19. The enhancements to Cato SDP will further help IT leaders to quickly deliver secure remote access at scale to their employees across the globe,” says Shlomo Kramer, CEO and co-founder of Cato Networks.”

Cato SDP With Instant Access Delivers Optimized Remote Access Worldwide in Minutes

As WFH (work-from-home) becomes the norm, remote access has become an even more critical part of IT infrastructure. Legacy VPN servers suffer from scalability limitations, which impact the expansion of WFH access to all employees, and performance problems for distant remote users. VPNs also introduces security risks as malicious users are a mere password away from sensitive business-critical resources.

Cato SDP addresses those challenges. With Instant Access, users can only access authorized applications. They simply click a URL, authenticate once through single sign-on (SSO), and gain access to their portal of authorized applications. For those requiring full access to both Web and legacy applications, Cato continues to offer its Cato Client as part of Cato SDP.

Cato SDP Leverages the Power of SASE to Transform Remote Access

By leveraging Cato’s global SASE platform, Cato SDP with Instant Access solves the critical scaling, performance, security, and management limitations that have hampered legacy mobile access solutions. Specifically, Cato SDP delivers:

Rapid Deployment

Cato SDP deploys instantly, requiring no additional software on the mobile device, or SDP connector software or SDP gateway hardware in the datacenter. As the enterprise network, Cato already controls application flows, allowing Cato customers to publish applications with just a few clicks at their Cato management consoles.

Unlimited Scalability

Cato’s SASE cloud-native and globally distributed architecture supports an unlimited number of users across the globe. Users can easily move from the office to their homes, or work on the road, with their access being consistently secure and always optimized.

Optimal Global Performance

Cato SDP sends remote traffic across Cato’s optimized, global private backbone not the unpredictable public Internet. Remote users are first-class citizens on the corporate network.

Secure Access

Multi-factor authentication is part of the SASE platform and is provided with Cato SDP. What’s more restricting access to approved applications and eliminating network credentials simplifies not only the user experience but also removes the risk of attackers or advanced malware accessing unauthorized network resources.

Continuous Threat Prevention

Cato’s cloud-based network security stack continuously protects remote workers against network-based threats. Cato’s security stack includes NGFW, SWG, IPS, advanced anti-malware, and Managed Threat Detection and Response (MDR) service.

Single-Pane-of-Glass Management

Cato SDP is configured, maintained, and managed through the same portal as the rest of Cato’s networking and security services making configuration and management very simple.

Cato management console

The Cato management console is a single-pane-of-glass for managing remote access and the rest of the enterprise network.
