Secure SD-WAN converges networking and security without performance trade off. By operating with Netskope Cloud-XD, Netskope Borderless SD-WAN delivers context-aware SD-WAN policies that are based on zero trust principles and deep visibility into applications and app risk, user/user risk, device/device risks that delivers true single vendor SASE. By sharing the application database, Secure SD-WAN supports industry’s highest number of applications with pre-configured Netskope CCI (Cloud-Confidence Index) based smart defaults.
With one-click to SSE, Secure SD-WAN, protects the entire infrastructure from outside threats because networking and security can be converged for the user through centralized policies that apply no matter where the user or the applications resides. Secure SD-WAN provides secure, optimized on-ramp to any cloud from any location globally distributed Cloud Services Fabric – deployed at top-tier data centers or in Service Provider SDN PoP.
Branch of One
Borderless SD-WAN provides that mobility and enables that wireless-first strategy, along with security and edge computing with SD-WAN, delivered through a hardware device that can go along with users wherever their branch of one is located. Branch of One is fitted with the Power of One delivered by an All-in-One AI-powered SASE gateway that consolidates cellular, security, SD-WAN, and edge compute and helps enterprises build smart work spaces for employees working from home, to fleets, and more. Imagine an energy company, with hundreds of fleet trucks that have an access point, a switch, a router and a wireless device- and most of these devices have to be ruggedized to withstand harsh environments. On top of all these, customers need SD-WAN to consume applications at any location from any location.
To be able to work anywhere, at any time in a many-to-many world, we need more on the wireless front than what SD-WAN has provided. What’s required is fast and reliable connectivity in every location, whether it’s in a field vehicle always on the move or a stationary, enterprise access point on a wall that provides a strong signal inside your IT closets. Borderless SD-WAN as a Wireless WAN device that is ruggedized, compact form factor, C1D2 rated, and is suited for hazardous and harsh environments. The Netskope cellular gateway can be mounted on the rooftop and powered by POE cable, and provides the strong signal strength to the Borderless SD-WAN gateway in the closet. This helps organizations manage all devices from a single console vs deploying multiple vendors and consoles saving costs and also overcoming the limitations of external antennas that lose signal strength as a function of the distance and becomes almost unusable if the distance between the close router and the roof top is too long. Legacy SD-WAN cannot do this. Borderless SD-WAN can.
With Borderless SD-WAN, not only can multi-cloud networking occur from a single unified console, where Borderless SD-WAN’s light weight software can be easily instantiated across all of the clouds. Automated cloud operations from this single unified console allows these Borderless SD-WAN software instances to interoperate and exchange routes with major cloud providers like AWS Transit Gateway, Azure Virtual Router, and GCP Cloud Router. With one-click access to Netskope’s intelligent SSE (security service edge), companies also have integrated full stack security to protect from all cyber attacks.
IoT intelligent Access
Netskope SASE gateway supports zero-touch provisioning, with integrated edge compute, brings compute closer to the data source. It can collect and unlock and extract data from IoT sensors devices and deliver only the data that exceeds certain thresholds to the IoT cloud using 4G/LTE wireless or other transport connections of choice. of your choice. With scalable application life-cycle management (ALM), customers can run their own application or out-of-the-box container services like Azure IoT edge runtime, or run other services from a catalog of services provided by Netskope much like Application Store for mobile devices.
