Overview:

Creating a Software-Defined Perimeter

Introducing your next WAN—a software-defined perimeter, delivered as a service, and designed for today’s connected enterprise with a growing footprint of IoT deployments.

NetCloud Perimeter quickly connects IoT devices to applications, and remote & mobile workers to corporate resources regardless of location. IT pros and network teams can deploy, expand or contract a software-defined virtual network in minutes. It eliminates the hardware, complexity, and operational costs of traditional WANs—providing Internet reach with private network security for network admins, and LAN-like simplicity for mobile users. Now you can make the public Internet your private network without giving up visibility, security and control.

NetCloud Perimeter provides a simple, cloud-based alternative to VPN. It allows companies to build and deploy virtual overlay networks in minutes, connecting all their IoT devices and remote and mobile workers to business-critical resources. Offering cloud-based security, the NetCloud Perimeter service eliminates the hardware, complexity, and operational costs of traditional WANs. It enables easy deployment of changes at the network edge while maintaining security, visibility, and control as business requirements evolve.

Now IT teams can build and deploy secure virtual overlay networks in minutes to connect:

  • Remote or mobile workforces using Windows, iOS, Android, or Linux devices
  • IoT devices such as: kiosks, digital signs, cameras, sensors, meters, etc.

And create a software-defined perimeter—across the Internet or any private or public cloud.

NetCloud Perimeter works with existing network and security infrastructures. It requires no hardware or configuration, scales instantly, and is subscription-based. Build multiple secure overlay networks, tailored for purpose and per account, to scale and perform independently based on business needs.

Multi-Layer Security: Protects End-to-End, Everywhere

As enterprises continue to embrace workforce mobility, BYOD, and public cloud, protecting network borders and endpoints is no longer sufficient. NetCloud Perimeter’s security foundation is a multi-layer, network-based approach to security that protects users, devices, and workloads wherever they’re deployed. Key elements include:

  • Secure Overlay: Abstraction of logical network & address space from the Internet
  • Encryption: Protects data in-transit end-to-end with the strength of 256-bit encryption
  • Network Virtualization: Enables zero-trust WANs through microsegmentation
  • Multi-layer Authentication: Device, virtual network, domain & certificate level
  • Secure Internet Access sends all traffic from target IoT devices through the dark virtual cloud network

These security building blocks help protect against a myriad of networkbased attacks:

  • IP address-related attacks (port scans, spoofing, DNS poisoning, & DDoS)
  • Packet sniffing exploits (Firesheep & other nefarious sniffing programs)
  • Authentication hacks (unchanged passwords, brute force & single factor)

Zero-Trust WANs: Contain Threats When & Where They Happen

As more subnets connect over the WAN, the “attack surface” of a breach or malware infection grows both inside or outside the firewall. To significantly limit the impact of such events, NetCloud Perimeter’s virtual networks can be microsegmented on a site, departmental, or even user- and device-level. The result is a zero-trust WAN that automatically isolates threats and quarantines them when and where they happen.

Rapid Deployment: Define in Minutes, Deploy With Your Tools

Define and deploy virtual networks, connect local and remote users, small offices, IoT devices and sensors, kiosks, digital signage, and even VMs, containers, and servers in minutes rather than days. NetCloud Perimeter works with popular automation, orchestration, and client software distribution tools, including Puppet, Chef, and Microsoft SCCM.

Virtualized Services within NetCloud Perimeter

Extend the visibility, security, and control of perimeter networks within NetCloud Perimeter. In a few clicks, you can add services such as Active Directory integration, security policy deployment and micro-segmentation, and network bandwidth monitoring.

Power of the Cloud: Global Reach, Enterprise Scale, Full Resiliency

The NetCloud Perimeter platform overlays top-tier cloud data centers around the world, including Amazon AWS, Rackspace and Digital Ocean. This enables massive scale to accommodate large networks and traffic loads, and local points of presence to 80 percent of the world’s computing population. When a disruption occurs, the platform’s SDN and multi-cloud architecture enables affected networks to be automatically migrated to another data center—often within the TCP protocol connection timeout—so users’ sessions are maintained and users themselves are often unaware of any issue.
