Taipei, Taiwan – Feb 27th, 2024 – Lanner Electronics Inc., a global leader in network appliances, and Versa Networks,  the global leader in AI/ML-powered Unified Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) and Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN), are proud to announce their collaboration on an industrial SD-WAN and SASE solution designed to help service operators achieve greater visibility and control over distributed nodes in critical infrastructure.

The Lanner Hardened Energy Management & Cybersecurity Platform is a cloud-native, multi-tenant industrial WAN edge solution that integrates Lanner’s industrial-grade uCPE hardware platform with the Versa’s Unified SASE software platform. This joint solution is validated by Versa, and delivers converged security, networking, SD-WAN, and analytics. Built to run in the most challenging environments, the industrial WAN edge solution provides the flexibility and elasticity needed to deliver simple, scalable, and secure deployments in critical infrastructure like pipelines, gas utilities, and renewable power stations.

The joint solution has been deployed by a leading North American oil and gas operator who required a secure and reliable platform that could be distributed in remote areas to continuously monitor its pipeline and  protect its critical infrastructure networks against advanced cyber threats.

To enable reliable mission-critical connectivity in harsh and remote environments, Lanner provides two LTE-ready whitebox network appliances, including a rugged, IEC-61850-3 certified uCPE LEC-6041 and desktop uCPE NCA-1515. Both devices are equipped with the Sierra Wireless EM7511 chipset, featuring out-of-the-box LTE failover connectivity with FirstNet and CBRS compliance.

Versa’s AI/ML-powered single-vendor Unified SASE delivers organically developed best-of-breed functions that tightly integrate and deliver services via the cloud, on-premises, or as a blended combination of both, managed through a single pane of glass. Versa delivers SASE services such as Secure SD-WAN, Next-Generation Firewall, Next-Generation Firewall as a Service, Cloud Network Firewall, Unified Threat Management (UTM) including Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), Secure Web Gateway (SWG), Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Data Loss Prevention (DLP), Remote Browser Isolation (RBI), and User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA). Versa’s single-vendor Unified SASE platform goes above and beyond management console automation by providing the ability to integrate networks, points of presence, policy definitions, application definitions, agent logic, and data lakes.
