UAE-based telco du -which operates under the umbrella of Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company (EITC)- has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Versa Networks, the global leader in artificial intelligence and machine learning-powered unified secure access service edge (SASE), to enhance and expand the former's integrated network-security portfolio.

du and Versa Networks will thus embark on building a powerful partnership to deliver unified SASE services to help accelerate the digital transformation of enterprise customers across the UAE. Versa's unified SASE platform securely and reliably connects home workers, branch workers, and users to applications with consistent and uniform security policies across the entire network, while decreasing latency, reducing complexity, and enhancing visibility with a single pane of glass.

By delivering unified SASE services, we aim to provide businesses with secure, reliable, and simplified network access, while ensuring consistent and uniform security policies. Together, du and Versa Networks are poised to address the complex network and access challenges faced by enterprises and the public sector, contributing to their digital transformation journey."
