In the new digital world, we’re no longer restricted by borders and can innovate with our colleagues and partners all over the world. ABB FIA Formula E World Championship has been growing year-on-year and has become the testing ground for the latest innovations not only for Motorsport, but the automotive industry as a whole. So, I am thrilled to announce that today we are launching a partnership with the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team as its official SASE partner.
Porsche has a rich racing history dating back to the 1950s. In Formula E’s sixth season, Porsche made its long-awaited return to top-flight single-seater racing and has continued to make positive strides over the past three years. Last season saw the team secure their first race win in Formula E with an impressive 1-2 finish in Mexico City.
At Cato, we pride ourselves on helping our customers collaborate securely from anywhere on the globe by eliminating the complexities of point solutions and delivering secure network architecture through the power of a single-vendor SASE cloud platform. Global motorsport competitions are often labeled as traveling circuses, as they assemble, race, pack up, and move on to the next country on a weekly and monthly basis. The nature of the Formula E racing season, along with the team’s extensive use of technologies and data, has meant that cloud-native networking and security infrastructure have become a cornerstone of the team’s strategy.
The decisions that the TAG Heuer Porsche team makes are comparable to those of any business organization. When you need to analyze every data point from tire temperatures to battery depletion in real-time and the team’s HQ is located on the other side of the world, it’s vital the team can make split second decisions to make a difference on track.
These decisions are informed by vast datasets that the team has collected throughout each Formula E event and the car’s extensive development. These data-informed insights are critical for the team’s on-track performance and must be taken in a way that minimizes security and operational risks as well as optimal application and data access.
Cato will play an important role helping the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E team to optimize operations and provide secure access to the network and SaaS applications all season long. We are excited and optimistic about the season and working together to… WIN!
