Examine 100% of Your Traffic Without Compromising Network Performance
The Corsa Red Armor Network Security Virtualization Platform is a new, turnkey virtualization approach to scale traffic inspection so you can elastically add virtual NGFW (Next Generation Firewall) capacity to meet increasing bandwidth demand. Gone is the need to constantly upgrade specialized, single-purpose hardware. Instead, the platform uses a pay-as-you-grow cloud model, greatly improving TCO compared to the CAPEX for existing security approaches.
The Corsa platform is quick to deploy, simple to manage, and vendor agnostic. You can continue to use your preferred security vendors, while behind the scenes the virtual appliances run on state-of-the-art hyperconverged infrastructure, specifically optimized for scaling network security. The ultimate flexibility of our private cloud approach is that you can easily migrate from your existing physical appliances and then extend the platform to support additional security services in the future with our ever-expanding partner ecosystem.
You can focus on your security policy while the Corsa Red Armor takes care of scaling your traffic inspection and other network security services.
Corsa Red Armor Capabilities
Built on a simple and intuitive UI, the Corsa Red Armor Manager is your single portal to set up and orchestrate your firewall VMs running on the Corsa Red Armor turnkey network security virtualization platform. It shows you the health of the virtual firewall system, resource allocation, VM and network utilization.
It is tightly integrated with your preferred firewall policy manager so you are able to create security profiles in the same way as you have always done. Alerts and network performance metrics give you instant feedback on your inspection capacity so you see what needs attention and can add capacity or make changes at the click of a button.
Order with One Click
Order the security inspection capacity and services you need quickly and easily since inspection is completely abstracted away from the infrastructure.
Deploy in Minutes
The platform operates seamlessly with your existing security stacks so you can set it up in minutes. It acts as a bump-in-the-wire so there is no need to rearchitect the network.
Add or remove security inspection capacity and services as needed for improved economics since you eliminate costly hardware refresh cycles.
The foundation seamlessly integrates four core elements and specifically optimizes them for network security. This allows you to scale virtual security services and inspect all traffic, all of the time, at any scale.
Private Cloud Approach
By using a private cloud approach, the Red Armor platform looks and acts like a public cloud, giving you the speed, agility and cost savings promised by the cloud but you are the only tenant for additional peace-of-mind.
Works with Your Security Functions
Your firewall policy is configured the same as always, and you continue to use your existing firewall vendor (Fortinet, Palo Alto and more). Additional security services (such as IDS/IPS, DLP, etc.) are supported in similar fashion.
How it works
The Corsa Red Armor platform is built up on four base elements that are carefully integrated to address both the needs of the network and the security stack. This sophisticated integration is turnkey so you don’t need to worry about setting up, managing and tracking VMs. You get a tightly coupled system that horizontally scales virtual instances of your security service, allowing you to stay focused on your security policy.
Once deployed (which only takes a few minutes), traffic enters the load balancer on either 1G/10G or 100G links and is balanced into the server under control of a hypervisor specifically designed for optimal management of network security workloads. Because of the advanced load balancing and horizontal scaling into compute, you can turn up as much traffic inspection or other capability on a link as you require.
Traditional inspection bottlenecks are eliminated. As your inspection needs change, you can add compute in increments of 20 Gbps steps with the click of a button. The number of virtual firewall instances to create more inspection capacity is up to you but it is also monitored by the platform so you don’t need to. We alert you so there is plenty of opportunity to increase capacity so you pay-as-you-grow.
