  • Secure Access Service Edge (SASE)

    The unprecedented rise of the hybrid workplace model stretched Enterprise IT architecture beyond its limits.
    Legacy IT networks were designed with the physical datacenter and perimeter defense in mind. Cloud
    architectures and services disrupted this.

    Users, devices, applications, and services are connected to various clouds – on-prem, private, hybrid, and public cloud services. This required a paradigm shift in security and connectivity – all solved by the SASE approach, based on Zero Trust Network Access.

    However, the heavy workloads, mission-critical applications, the ones that are at the core of your business were left behind. All are still running on monolithic security architectures, missing capabilities that the SASE approach offers.

  • Security Service Edge (SSE) Platform

    A Security Service Edge (SSE) platform is a cloud-delivered security solution that provides security at the edge of the network. SSE platforms typically include a variety of security services.

    SSE platforms can be deployed in a variety of ways, including:

    • As a cloud service: SSE platforms can be deployed as a cloud service, which is the most common deployment model. This allows organizations to easily scale the platform up or down to meet demand.
    • As a virtual appliance: SSE platforms can also be deployed as a virtual appliance on-premises. This is a good option for organizations that have strict security requirements or that need to comply with regulations.
    • As a hybrid deployment: SSE platforms can also be deployed in a hybrid fashion, with some components in the cloud and some components on-premises. This is a good option for organizations that want the flexibility of the cloud but also need the security of an on-premises deployment.

    SSE platforms offer a number of benefits, including:

    • Simplified security: SSE platforms can help organizations to simplify security by centralizing security controls and providing a single pane of glass for managing security.
    • Improved visibility: SSE platforms can help organizations to improve visibility into their network traffic and applications. This can help organizations to identify and respond to security threats more quickly.
    • Reduced costs: SSE platforms can help organizations to reduce costs by eliminating the need to purchase and maintain on-premises security appliances.

    insidepacket SSE platform contains a comprehensive services suite, fully flexible and consumed by demand – starting from a single service such as routing, firewall, blocking web threats, content filtering, and Multi-Cloud connectivity to a complete Secure Service Edge stack. The solution is inherently designed for multiple tenancies, and thus, designed for operators offering  SSE solutions for their enterprise customers.

  • Software Define Networks (SDN)

    Software-defined networking (SDN) is an approach to networking that separates the control plane from the data plane. The control plane is responsible for managing the network, while the data plane is responsible for forwarding traffic. This separation allows for more flexible and programmable network management, making it easier to adapt to changing network requirements and optimize traffic flow.

    SDN is often used to improve network efficiency, scalability, and automation in data centers and large-scale networks. It is also required for any NaaS (Network as a Service) solution.

    InsidePacket’s NaaS solution is built on SDN principles. This means that all networking functions are virtualized and controlled by a software controller. The controller uses APIs to communicate with the underlying hardware, which allows for dynamic and efficient network management.

    For example, the InsidePacket controller can be used to create virtual networks, assign policies, and monitor traffic. It can also be used to automatically optimize the network for different workloads.

    By using SDN, InsidePacket can deliver a NaaS solution that is scalable, flexible, and easy to manage. This makes it a good choice for businesses of all sizes that need to improve their network performance and agility.
