Resiliency and security are the top concerns 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. In addition, with millions of workers now accessing corporate networks remotely, hackers have even more opportunities to compromise systems. 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 Ecessa’s Integrated Firewall
Every Ecessa product comes with a Layer 7 Next Generation Firewall that blocks threats to your network and your users. Ecessa can be your primary firewall, add a layer of security to your network edge, or simply play nicely with the enterprise firewall you already have in place. With that flexibility, you can decide what is best for your business.
One Ecessa customer, who had switched to dual-WAN firewalls, recently replaced them with new Ecessa units. His reason? “We missed the reliability, ease of use and configuration and great support of Ecessa.”
Ecessa firewall features include:
- Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IDS/IPS) with Anti-malware/Anti-virus protection
- Selectable threat classes (Malware, Ransomware, DDoS)
- Threat package updates (automatic and configurable)
- Geoblocking of traffic based on geography
- Website filtering
- Custom rules engine
- SSL VPN authentication using username and password
- SSL VPN multi-factor authentication (MFA) using Duo
- Customizable inbound and outbound rules
- Quality of Service (QoS) engine
- Access Control List (ACL) with change logs
- Full read/write control of all rules and policies
- Full reporting, logging and alerting
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.
