Kalaam Telecom has partnered with Versa Networks to launch Bahrain’s First Secured SD-WAN (Software-Defined Wide Area Network) infrastructure that provides an end-to-end solution to simplify and secure the WAN/branch office networks.
Enterprise IT challenges are rapidly increasing with growing business and technology needs, such as the increase in demand for cloud applications, non-centralised manageability of multiple branches, increase in security threats and longer times to prepare branch offices for business. Kalaam’s next generation feature-rich Secured SD-WAN solution mitigates the above challenges by securely supporting application growth, network agility, and simplified branch implementations, thus delivering exceptional quality of experience for both on-premises and cloud-based applications.
Veer Passi, Chief Executive Officer at Kalaam Telecom, said: “Versa Networks allows Kalaam to provide tremendous advantages for enterprises to set up multi-branch communication – local and international – within hours with a deep set of security capabilities including firewall, UTM, DDoS, Antivirus and DNS security.”
He added: “Advanced features such as real-time graphical analytics, deep dive view of networks and application performance helps users to understand usage, trends and threats to immediately take action on any notable incidents. This partnership delivers a broad set of capabilities for building agile and secure enterprise WAN / branch networks at a very low cost. Based on experience of some recent deployments & international research, the savings from SD-WAN adoption could range between 50% - 80% vs. a traditional MPLS-based WAN infrastructure.”
Kumar Mehta, founder and CDO of Versa Networks, said: “The demand for next-generation, hybrid WAN architectures is rapidly increasing across the Arab states of the Persian Gulf as their economies enter the digital transformation age. Businesses of all types, from retail and finance to the oil industry, are requiring more agility, better economics and business alignment from their secure networks.”
