Cato Networks and e& further expanding global SASE platform with new UAE PoP

Cato Networks, the leader in SASE, announces a strategic partnership with e& (etisalat and) during International Telecoms Week (ITW) in the United States, a significant move that will see the establishment of a new Point-of-Presence (PoP) within the global technology group’s SmartHub data center in Fujairah. As one of the United Arab Emirates’ premier carrier-neutral data facilities, e&’s SmartHub will be a pivotal platform for Cato’s’ enterprise customers, enabling them to tap into a world of enhanced interconnectivity and Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) technology.

This collaboration is set to unlock many global interconnection opportunities for Cato’s customers. Enterprise customers will benefit from SmartHub’s extensive ecosystem, which offers unparalleled access to interconnected communities and ensures a broad reach to international markets. The integration into e&’s SmartHub will allow Cato’s customers to enjoy the advantages of reduced latency and superior connectivity performance, optimizing their global communications and data transfer efficiency.

By leveraging SmartHub data center’s state-of-the-art infrastructure and strategic location, Cato reaffirms its commitment to providing businesses with cutting-edge SASE solutions that empower their growth and global presence.

“Our partnership with e& provides organizations with unparalleled connectivity and a seamless network security stack, setting a new standard in flexibility and agility. Legacy network tools and hardware fall short of meeting the needs of modern enterprise clients, leaving them vulnerable to breaches. Organizations today require the efficiency and effectiveness of a cloud-native platform, delivering a comprehensive network and security infrastructure within minutes and hours. The Cato SASE Cloud Platform offers unmatched control and visibility, allowing a seamless connection from any edge to any service. This enables rapid time to value, increased operational resilience, and reduced risk and run costs,” comments Kanwar Loyal, VP for Northern Europe & MEA. “Cato is dedicated to supporting the Gulf region and recognizes the significance of collaborating with global leaders such as e& to deliver secure digital services in an ever-expanding interconnected world.”

Nabil Bacoucche, Group Chief Carrier & Wholesale Officer, e&, said: “We are excited to share our partnership with Cato Networks, which reflects our dedication to building a connected world that nurtures growth for both businesses and individuals. Leveraging our extensive network of strategically located data centers, we provide access to a significant portion of the global population through top-notch infrastructure. We are enthusiastic about supporting Cato Networks with a competitive advantage by seamlessly linking them to international digital networks.”
