Telesystem and Versa Networks have embarked on a collaboration with Telarus that will bring Secure SD-WAN to small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs).

The partnership will add the Versa Titan service into the telecommunications agent channel with Telesystem to provide operational support and allow Telarus agents to gain early access to sell what is billed as an “easy-to-manage Secure SD-WAN and managed security functionality within a single, high-powered device”.

This new program will allow the Telarus agent community to offer multiple Versa consumption options to their customers, including those customers which want to own and manage their Versa deployment. Additionally, Telesystem will act as a central point of contact for all Versa-related projects, simplifying the engagement process and enabling a multi-faceted product portfolio for all Telarus partners.

“Versa has established clear industry leadership and continues to drive significant global momentum in the Secure SD-WAN and SASE markets,” said Michael Wood, chief marketing officer for Versa Networks. “Telesystem has a unique high-touch approach and in-depth relationships in the agent channel, which we believe will accelerate the growth of Versa Secure SD-WAN and Versa SASE.

Telesystem executive vice president and chief business development officer Bruce Wirt, added: “It’s an honour for Telesystem to be considered to operationalise this product set for Versa in the agent channel.

“We’re excited to get this in the hands of our sales team, as well as the very capable hands of Telarus partners across the country.”
