Versa Networks announced that its SASE offering has been recognized in The Govies Government Security Awards competition by Security Today magazine.
Security Today magazine is the only integrated product and technology magazine that covers the entire security market.
In addition, securitytoday.com is the leading editorial site for the security industry.
Versa Networks received the Gold Award in the Cyber Defense Solutions Awards category.
1105 Media launched its government safety awards program in 2009; it then became known as The Govies in 2011.
The awards recognize outstanding government security products across a range of categories, and 1105 Media notes that this year’s attendance was one of the highest to date, acknowledging the ongoing concern for government security.
“The pandemic has wreaked havoc around the world, but security manufacturers have continued to work hard to design new security solutions for the government sector,” said Security Today magazine and editor of securitytoday.com, Ralph C. Jensen.
“It is truly a testament to dedication and vision to ensure the best products are available for government use.
“Manufacturers should be proud of their employees for providing the best solutions in these difficult times.
“We appreciate the opportunity to improve the market by honoring these winners.”
The top entries in the 2022 categories were chosen by an independent security industry judging panel.
Judges named winners based on criteria such as functionality, innovation, usability, interoperability, quality, design, market opportunity, impact in the security industry, technical advancements and scalability.
“Government is a very successful and rapidly growing industry for Versa, and it is gratifying to win another award for Versa SASE, especially from an independent panel of security industry judges,” said Michael. Wood, chief marketing officer of Versa Networks.
“Versa SASE has earned its place as the government sector’s SASE solution of choice by offering unique integration of SASE networking and security services via the cloud or, if customers prefer, delivered on-premises or as a a combination of both.
“Government organizations around the world look to Versa as a strategic partner to meet their complex needs for secure access, networking and digital transformation. Versa is the modern secure network.
