Security is the top concern for every business, large and small. A day does not go by without another example of why companies must be proactive in upgrading, testing and reinforcing their security infrastructure and incidence avoidance and response activities. According to Small Business Trends, 43 percent of cyber-attacks target small business, and 60 percent of small companies go out of business within six months of being attacked. Enough said. Security is a must, and any network infrastructure changes you make must have security features, capabilities and a track record of success. Ecessa SD-WAN provides multiple layers of security to enhance and improve your existing security strategy.  

Security with SD-WAN

Ecessa SD-WAN devices provide additional layers of security at the network edge and across the entire WAN. Our integrated firewall can act as your first line of defense and work seamlessly with third-party network gear, including state-of-the-art enterprise security appliances. Ecessa can be your primary edge firewall, or add another layer of security to your existing network or simply play nicely with what you already have in place – every Ecessa product comes with a firewall so that you can decide what is best for your business.

Encryption with SD-WAN

Ecessa SD-WAN also provides industry standard encryption engines that you know and rely on today, such as 128- and 256-bit IPsec or SSL VPNs. Ecessa can interoperate with your existing infrastructure; we are able to natively create and manage VPNs for your remote locations or users regardless of the connection type or provider. Ecessa also offers the ability to selectively encrypt your SD-WAN tunnels, providing more tools for you to customize the solution to meet the unique needs of your business. This flexibility helps secure public broadband connections and augment your existing network security with as little disruption as possible.



Regulated industries, like banking or healthcare, must adhere to strict security guidelines in order to protect critical and sensitive data, often leveraging private connections and extra layers of encryption to secure communications, transactions, or data replication for disaster recovery requirements. When Stearns Bank needed additional bandwidth to support high-speed access and superior security measures, they worked with Ecessa and other partners to craft a technology solution that ensured safeguards and satisfied the banking industry’s high standard for security and compliance. The Ecessa team helped determine why Stearns Bank wasn’t getting the speed they needed while providing additional bandwidth and security along the way.
