TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team taps the Cato SASE Cloud for a second-place finish in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship 2023 opening race in Mexico City

TEL AVIV, Israel, January 17, 2023 – Cato Networks, provider of the world’s leading single-vendor SASE platform, debuted this weekend as the Official Cybersecurity & Networking Partner of the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez Circuit in Mexico City. The Cato SASE Cloud interconnected and secured the team’s IT systems throughout the race weekend.

At the Mexico City E-Prix, the new Porsche 99X Electric Gen3 race car achieved a brilliant one-two result. The Porsche customer squad Avalanche Andretti won the opening round of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship in Mexico City with its driver Jake Dennis (GBR). For the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team, the works driver Pascal Wehrlein (GER), the 2022 winner in Mexico, took the flag in second place after a spirited charge through the field.

Mexico City E-Prix is the first of 16 Formula E competitions in 2023 around the globe. In each race, teams will push electric vehicle technology to its limit. Cato Networks will assist the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team throughout the course of the racing calendar.

“Cato Networks is primarily used to help overcome the challenges of connecting and securing distributed IT systems,” said Eyal Webber-Zvik, VP of Product Marketing and Strategic Alliances at Cato Networks. “TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team needs to securely transmit and access large volume of data completely uninterrupted over a race weekend, and the most suitable technology to support that is the Cato SASE Cloud. We’re thrilled to get that first race under our belt and look forward to continuing to work with the team to break records and boundaries.”

TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team utilizes the Cato Networks SASE platform to securely connect the race teams all over the world to its headquarter. During race weekends, the team transfers vital data across the Cato global private backbone to the factory database for real-time analysis, and back to the drivers and tech teams for boosting the team performance.
