Startup Cato Networks Calls SD-WAN ‘Short-Sighted’
Cato Networks is looking to disrupt the SD-WAN market by adding “brains” to the middle transport mile via software and the cloud. (Given that the SD-WAN companies are disruptors for traditional MPLS services, does that make Cato a re-disruptor?)
Tel Aviv-based Cato Networks plans on formally launching itself and its product(s) sometime around February. Until then, it’s not talking publicly about exactly how this re-disruption works. The company is closing in on beta tests of its software near the end of the current fourth quarter with six to a dozen partners and service providers, says Yishay Yovel, vice president of marketing.
