Our Approach to SASE

Every organization is increasingly dependent on internet connectivity to conduct daily business. Furthermore, companies of all size are under constant threat from cybercrime, and more employees
are working outside the protection of the corporate firewall
than ever before.

This is why it is paramount that you protect your organization by working with a company that understands the critical role security plays in the LAN/WAN management of your business.

Matrix Networks specializes in connectivity. We work with your team to design a holistic solution for WAN optimization and network security, leveraging our internal team of networking experts
and our portfolio of trusted vendors.

CATO Networks | from SD-WAN to SASE

SD-WAN grew in popularity throughout 2010 as a more flexible and cloud-friendly approach to WAN connectivity. While SD-WAN appliances move enterprises closer to where they need to be, they simply aren’t designed to address all the networking and security challenges modern enterprises face. Enter CATO Networks.

CATO Networks pioneered the convergence of networking and security. Their vision is to "deliver a next-generation secure networking architecture that eliminates the complexity, costs and risks associated with legacy IT approaches based on disjointed point solutions." CATO has proven to stand by this mission, and Matrix Networks is proud to partner with CATO as they help our clients realize the benefits of SASE as either a standalone product, or in conjunction with Matrix Networks' MCaaS Solution.

Backed by one of the world's most powerful and innovative technology firms, Palo Alto, Prisma Access and the CloudGenix solution are an absolute must for those looking to secure their organizations for the future.
