In today’s environment, it’s important to treat the threat of malicious attacks not as an “if,” but a “when.” Given that near certainty of infiltration attempts, every measure that can mitigate or contain an attack is critical to the health of your entire network. This is particularly true if you have a number of “smart” devices currently deployed; without a proper security mechanism, IoT could change from “Internet of Things” to “Internet of Threats.”
Our campus aggregation networking solution, powered by Pluribus Networks, offers an intelligent approach to network security, with and you’ll see the benefits beyond the aggregation layer throughout your network.
One of the most effective methods of containing a cyberattack is segmentation. Effective segmentation reduce cyberattack surfaces and prevents lateral movement and data exfiltration. Segmentation eliminates the risk of a total network takedown by restricting lateral paths to other parts of the network after infiltration. By slicing the network to reduce access among users, applications, traffic, and resources, you are reducing cyberattack surfaces… they can’t attack what they can’t see!
A perfect instance of the “distributed environment, managed as one” principle that provides operational efficiency and simplicity in all aspects of this solution. You can define network policies centrally, while enforcing and distributing them throughout the entire network.
Instead of managing multiple firewalls at individual boxes in your entire network, this solution’s service insertion capabilities allow you to transparently interconnect and share a third-party security tools like firewalls throughout the entire network. The service insertion feature can reduce service deployment time from days to minutes.
Embedded telemetry generates metadata at wire speed without the need for additional equipment. This capability provides real-time operational intelligence on your networks, allowing rapid response and early warning. The feature enables the solution to serve as a perfect alternative to a network packet broker.
