Start up Cato Networks claims Network Security as a Service first

February 10th, 2016

Check Point founder Schlomo Kramer is launching a new cloud security firm with former Imperva colleague Gur Shatz as demand for traditional on premise firewall security diminishes. Cato Networks will offer a new cloud security concept that’s been dubbed Network Security as a Service (NSaaS).

The Cato Cloud has two complementary layers. One, the Cato Cloud Network, is based on a global, geographically distributed network of points of presence (PoPs). The second, Cato Security Services, is a suite of network security (such as firewalls, VPNs, URL filtering) delivered through the cloud as an integrated managed service.
