What Problems Do We Solve?

Real-time Threat Prevention is one of the most critical cyber defense requirements for the digital economy with enterprise security capacity being over-run by rapidly expanding security workloads as organizations shift to software-as-a-service (SaaS) and other cloud native applications. With the cloud connected and 5G enables world seeing billions of new connected endpoint devices added, especially in areas such as smart cities, smart manufacturing, and other smart infrastructure, the network perimeter has now been extended to encompass anywhere these devices are located; further widening the security gap. The ability for the Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) to rapidly rollout real-time threat prevention services, and to adapt and deliver end-to-end protection as and when needed, is a key challenge in this cloud connected world, especially for MSPs, MDRs and other service providers. Wedge’s leadership in this area allows us to form important and strategic partnerships with players who are movers and shakers in this digital transformation and enables increased growth for these partners. Today, Wedge’s products prevent advanced security threats for tens of millions of endpoints spanning more than 22 countries.
