Sprint Networks and Versa Networks join forces to build Secure SD-WAN across ANZ

Sprint Networks, Australia’s SD-WAN Managed Service Provider for customers in Australia, Papua New Guinea and Pacific Islands launches a new Secure SD-WAN service in partnership with Versa Networks.

Using Versa Secure SD-WAN, businesses will be able to securely improve the user experience of SaaS/IaaS applications as well as voice, web conferencing and key applications, plus leverage the power and resiliency that SD-WAN offers, enabling a choice in WAN options such as MPLS, NBN, Fixed broadband and LTE, plus can help consolidate equipment and CAPEX, OPEX and operational costs.

Legacy WAN networks were designed for a different era where all data was centralized and they are not optimal for the unprecedented explosion of WAN traffic that cloud adoption brings.

At Sprint Networks we understand this dilemma and have always looked to integrate purpose-driven WAN technologies to serve our customers and solve their pressing WAN network issues.

The Sprint Networks’ Secure Software-Defined WAN offering in partnership with vendor Versa Networks will provide the ANZ region unprecedented capabilities to enhance WAN performances and also keep the enterprise secure.

Sprint Networks’ state-of-the-art network architecture combined with Versa Secure SD-WAN, recommended by NSS labs will lend itself in designing cost-effective – robust – secure WANs.

Versa Secure SD-WAN enables enterprises to deploy a secure SD-WAN fabric for their branch/multi-cloud networks and better manage WAN costs while simplifying operations, enhancing network resiliency and improving application performance. Versa Secure SD-WAN integrates scalable advanced routing, networking services, full-featured SD-WAN and comprehensive integrated security functions such as NGFW and unified threat management (UTM) that also serve to consolidate multiple appliances into a single platform.
