Versa Networks Achieves IPv6 Certification, Ensuring Readiness for Next-Generation Connectivity, Interoperability and Security
Versa Networks, the global leader in AI/ML-powered Unified Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) and Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN), today announced that it has completed independent testing and was awarded an IPv6 Ready "Gold" Logo certification. The Versa Operating System (VOS) was certified against the National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST's) USGv6r1 Profile, covering Versa CSG and CSX appliances for SD-WAN and SD-LAN, as well as Versa Cloud Gateways.
The IPv6 Ready Logo Program is a conformance and interoperability testing program intended to increase user confidence by demonstrating that IPv6 is available and ready to be used. According to NIST's USGv6 Program website, "The USGv6 Profile includes a forward-looking set of protocol specifications published by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), encompassing basic IPv6 functionality, and specific requirements and key optional capabilities for routing, security, multicast, network management, and quality of service." It is used by governments and enterprises around the world for critical infrastructure, such as energy grids, communication networks, and financial trading networks, and it ensures products can be safely deployed in environments where IPv6 is in use.
"The U.S. government's move toward IPv6-only network environments dramatically increases the need to assure the quality, completeness and interoperability of the IPv6 capabilities in IT products and services," said Shiva Shenoy, Vice President of Engineering at Versa Networks. "Versa is committed to supporting IPv6 broadly to ensure our customers get the scalability, security, and service continuity they need with our Unified SASE platform."
"Versa builds its products with the readiness, performance and ability to deliver at the forefront, and it's gratifying to have our solutions verified by these very important certification programs," said Ken Lasoski, Director of Federal Compliance at Versa Networks. "Earning these certificatios provides important assurances for organizations looking to future proof their networks and is especially important and gives us a competitive advantage in some markets such as government that seek only solutions passing these rigorous tests. Today's announcement adds to our growing list of certifications that are important for governments, enterprises, other organizations, and service providers that need to fortify their network security in this age of heightened cybersecurity threats and concerns."
