Versa Titan is a cloud-managed SD-WAN branch and security solution that simplifies the complexity associated with wide-area network transformation, enterprise IT and managed services will be simplified. Cloud-based SD-WAN and security services are managed and activated with a web browser and mobile-app. Advanced IT service automation for the enterprise WAN-edge infrastructure is integrated with in-depth customer support.
Versa Titan makes it easier for managed service providers (MSPs) to deliver secure SD-WAN and for enterprises to buy, design, deploy and operate WAN infrastructure, accelerating their digital transformation strategies and improving business performance. Versa Titan delivers easy-to-use SD-WAN and software-defined security management tools that enhance visibility into security vulnerabilities, application behavior, network performance and bandwidth utilization.

Versa CSG runs Versa’s FlexVNF software stack as a branch office endpoint appliance with integrated enterprise-class LTE, Wi-Fi and PoE to further simplify and improve the customer experience as organisations transition to multi-cloud and hybrid-WAN infrastructures.
Later this year Nuvias will host and manage the Versa Titan roll out to its VAR and SI partner base across Europe. Launched in the US this month, Versa Titan is an intelligence-sensitive operation in which the choice of enabler is critical, which is why Versa has appointed value-added distributor Nuvias.
