S-NET Communications, a provider of cloud-based business communications and networking solutions, has expanded its partnership with Versa Networks, the secure access service edge (SASE) leader.

Through this partnership S-NET will offer Versa SASE as part of its portfolio of managed networking services to better meet the secure communications and networking needs of its growing number of multi-location enterprise clients.

Versa SASE and Secure SD-WAN services will enable S-NET's multi-location clients to simplify the deployment and administration of branch security services, optimise and standardise their network operations, as well as improve quality of service, while also reducing IT expenditure, the company states.

S-NET CEO Alex Fayn says, “As technology is increasingly dominating every aspect of business, our multi-location enterprise clients need robust solutions to support their growing cloud-based software ecosystem and secure their networks.

“Versa SASE and Secure SD-WAN will not only enable these organisations to standardise and scale network management and security across all locations, but they create the robust infrastructure that supports the introduction of innovative technologies, from third-party integrations, to voice-to-text ordering and autonomous vehicle delivery in the quick service restaurant industry, to omnichannel contact centres, AI and teledentistry in healthcare.

Adding Versa SASE to its portfolio of Secure SD-WAN, Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS), Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS) and Managed IT services enables S-NET to serve as a comprehensive communications and networking provider to its clients and expand its market share among multi-location enterprises.

Versa vice president North America partner sales Hemen Mehta says, "We are excited that S-NET is part of the Versa ACE Partner program to drive SASE and Secure SD-WAN for network enhancement to thousands of businesses nation-wide.

"The introduction of SASE into S-NET's existing cloud services portfolio enables S-NET's multi-location enterprise clients to easily manage the growing security and networking challenges of an increasingly complicated, hybrid IT environment.

S-NET Communications is known for offering cloud communications and networking solutions needed to accelerate business growth, as well as a dedicated, personalised customer service that enables clients to better utilise technological investments.

Founded by industry veterans Alex Fayn and Eugene Likhovid in 2006, S-NET Communications has grown from a regional telecommunications provider to serving thousands of businesses.

Business services include Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS), Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS), secure SD-WAN, unified threat management, managed IT services and more.

Versa Networks, the SASE company, combines extensive security, advanced networking, SD-WAN, multi-tenancy and sophisticated analytics via the cloud, on-premises, or as a blended combination of both to meet SASE requirements for small to large enterprises and service providers, and via the simplified Versa Titan cloud service designed for Lean IT.
