Singapore – Telecommunications firm Tata Communications has recently announced the introduction of its latest unified/single-vendor hosted secure access service edge (SASE) for global enterprises. 

This strategic initiative leverages a partnership with AI-powered Unified SASE firm Versa Networks to converge software-defined wide area networks and secure service edge capabilities in a single-pass technology. It then enables future-ready businesses to maximise the benefits of cloud-based environments with superior performance, zero-trust security, simplicity, and cost efficiency.

Hosted and managed entirely by Tata Communications, the said solution also provides secure, scalable, and agile deployment. The company’s cross-domain expertise, in particular across network, security, and cloud, ensures seamless operational management and integration with existing systems for enterprises, which guarantees robust support throughout their journey.

Furthermore, the company’s hosted SASE is harnessing its globally distributed network for delivering Hosted SASE, ensuring carrier-grade connectivity and performance. The solution delivers advanced detection and real-time protection through a cyber threat intelligence platform, generating insights that aggregate data from its network and other leading industry sources.

Its single-pass technology further ensures unified visibility and control of network traffic, along with actionable insights to optimise network performance. This allows enterprises to avoid the complexities and delays associated with managing an expanding array of point solutions.

Additionally, it also enhances return on investment, with the cost of ownership estimated to be nearly 40% lower than deploying point solutions through its deployment of Tata Communications Hosted SASE. 

Srinivasan CR, executive vice president for cloud and cybersecurity services and chief digital officer at Tata Communications, said, “Our customers operate in a hyperconnected environment, so it is vital that they are able to access data anytime, anywhere, without compromising on security or user experience.”

“Our hosted SASE solution powers global businesses with secure communication and collaboration, weaving all of their data and applications into a single digital fabric that enables end-to-end control and visibility,” added Srinivasan. 

Mouli S, SVP and CTO at Hinduja Global Solutions, also shared, “As workforces become increasingly hybrid, there has never been a more important time to deliver something radically different, as every customer is unique and needs flexibility when determining how a SASE architecture fits into their environment. With the hosted SASE, Tata Communications has set a new standard for enterprise security and connectivity for enterprises.”

Also speaking about the platform, Kelly Ahuja, CEO at Versa Networks, stated, “We are thrilled to deepen our partnership with Tata Communications. Their hosted SASE offering will help enterprises drive business transformation while enhancing security posture and providing a better user-to-app experience. Delivering this via a single platform and fully leveraging their global network footprint allows Tata Communications to create differentiation through data sovereignty and regulatory compliance.”

Meanwhile, Brian Washburn, research director at Omdia, said, “Remote working, connectivity to clouds, and collaboration are key enterprise considerations. But each comes with security risks. SASE helps simplify and integrate enterprise security models.” 

“Tata Communications’ Hosted SASE solution marks a first for its type of implementation globally, combining the provider’s high-performance global network with enhanced security for enterprises to connect, communicate, and collaborate more safely.”
