Cato Introduces Intelligent Last-Mile Management For SD-WAN ServicesNovember 19, 2018
Proactive monitoring and management allows Cato to rapidly identify and resolve brownouts and blackouts anywhere in the last mile TEL AVIV, Israel, November 19, 2018 – Cato Networks, the leading provider of secure, global SD-WAN as a service, introduced today intelligent last-mile management for Cato Cloud SD-WAN. Cato Intelligent Last-Mile Management (ILMM) uses continuous link profiling to detect network performance fluctuations and proactively resolve brownouts or blackouts in access lines. “Network access is the lifeblood of today’s business but maintaining that access depends on much more than simple last-mile connectivity. Organizations need to ensure their networks meet their application’s latency, loss, and jitter requirements metrics. Cato ILMM’s proactive, around-the-clock monitoring helps resolve networking problems before they become business problems,” says Shlomo Kramer, co-founder and CEO of Cato Networks.
Cato ILMM: Monitoring Reachability and Performance For Faster TroubleshootingCato ILMM eliminates finger-pointing by monitoring the reachability and performance of the network, upstream and downstream from the ISP. Cato continuously profiles each last-mile. Establishing normal network behavior enables detection of brownouts as well as blackouts, isolating root cause down to the specific service or last-mile location:
- Continuous Last-Mile Profiling leverages Cato’s vast data warehouse to create dynamic models of last-mile performance. Cato continuously measures packet loss, latency, jitter metrics for every monitored service across every managed link. This last-mile profile establishes a highly accurate model for defining and detecting brownouts. Cato evolves this profile over time to capture seasonal changes and other fluctuations in its calculations.
- Infrastructure Service Monitoring identifies outages in the underlying services required to run most common cloud applications beyond the physical last mile. Cato ILMM measures link connectivity and service-specific uptime using Ping, DNS, HTTP, and Traceroute. Additional services can be configured and monitored per specific customer needs.
- Pinpoint Identification: Cato monitors the complete customer connection from the location, through the ISP’s premises, to Cato PoPs and key cloud applications and resources. Cato is able to isolate problems down to the Cato network, the ISP, or the ISP’s peers.
