Cato Networks Unveils New Managed SASE Partner Platform

Cato Networks is targeting managed service providers with its new Managed SASE Partner Platform. The MSASE platform is aimed at helping channel partners more efficiently deliver Cato’s SASE Cloud Platform, which combines threat prevention, data protection, and incident detection and response, to their customers. It enables multi-tenancy, immediate access to new features, and centralized management capabilities geared for MSPs.

“Channel partners now have vendor-level powers over licensing, account management, visibility, and more,” said Frank Rauch, global channel chief at Cato Networks, in a statement.

MSPs that partner with Cato Networks say the platform will simplify the training and onboarding for their companies to more quickly deliver value to customers.

“With the introduction of Cato MSASE Partner Platform, Cato is making it easier for us to help customers fully deploy SASE or seamlessly shift into a full SASE deployment when they’re ready to do so,” said David Humes II, vice president of product development at US Signal, in a statement. US Signal’s SASE services are powered by Cato.


SASE, which stands for secure access service edge, is a networking model that combines network and security capabilities into a single, cloud-based service that enterprises can extend to their on-premises employees, remote workers, and branch offices.

According to Gartner, managed SASE service adoption will rise significantly in the next two years as enterprises opt to gain SASE capabilities via service providers. “By 2026, at least 45% of enterprises will use managed SASE services—an increase of three times from early 2023,” Gartner said in its report, How to Choose Between Managed SASE Services.

Cato SASE Cloud runs on a private global backbone of more than 75 points of presence (PoPs) connected via multiple SLA-backed network providers. The PoPs software continuously monitors the providers for latency, packet loss, and jitter to determine in real-time the best route for every packet. Cato applies optimization and acceleration to all traffic going through the backbone to enhance application performance and the user experience. To ensure all locations benefit, Cato optimizes traffic from all the edges and toward all destinations—on-premises and in the cloud.

Cato MSASE provides a multi-tenant partner dashboard that provides visibility into the details of customer account status. The dashboard also enables MSPs to manage customer environments from planning through deployment and into production.


“As a Cato Networks Distinguished Support Provider partner, we have been delivering managed SASE services to mid-market customers,” said Matt Hiles, chief operating officer at Mosaic NetworX, in a statement. “We look forward to harnessing the power of the Cato MSASE Partner Platform to further simplify the delivery of managed SASE services for our customers.”
