January 5, 2021

At Cato, we pride ourselves not only on the performance and airtight security of the Cato platform but the power and ease of use of its management tools. Cato’s cloud-based interface puts a lot of granular configuration power in the hands of the customers, rather than forcing them to wait hours or days for the provider to make each configuration change. Cato also provides unparalleled visibility into WAN traffic and security.

In Cato’s Sales Engineers Demo and Interview Video Series, our sales engineers show you their Cato favorites. Dive in with them as they demonstrate how to set bidirectional quality of service, utilize Cato’s Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) capabilities, and deep dive into bandwidth management and analytics.
