Versa's offer achieves 80% TCO savings, supports connectivity over any transport, enhances application experience, has built in NSS Labs' recommended NGFW security and UTM, delivers flawless voice and video experience using traffic conditioning, and supports multi-cloud environments.

Sify's SD-WAN and SD-Branch offering utilizes the Versa FlexVNF Software, which combines network and security capabilities to provide a full suite of Layer 3 to Layer 7 IP services that are built on a cloud-native, multitenant software platform. It provides strong segmentation and integrated on-premises security functions that enable a dynamic policy-driven infrastructure with user, device, location, application and network context.
