Manages virtual machines (VMs) and the infrastructure to virtualize Next Generation Firewalls (NGFW)
The Corsa Security Orchestrator is the virtual infrastructure manager at the heart of the turnkey Corsa Network Security Virtualization Platform. It controls the entire platform from the compute infrastructure and load balancing up to virtual machines so you can easily create and manage chassis-scale virtual firewalls for your Internet gateways and other high throughput north-south traffic.
The Corsa Security Orchestrator is designed from the ground up to provide an intuitive interface to simplify all the complex operations associated with running virtual NGFW instances, including licensing, zero-touch deployment, maintenance and troubleshooting, machine intelligence and auto-scaling.
It completely eliminates the need for additional DevOps resources that are typically responsible for provisioning and maintaining large numbers of NGFW VMs.
Key Capabilities of the Corsa Security Orchestrator Virtual Infrastructure Manager
Push-button VM clusters to scale inspection
Automatically builds and controls VM clusters as a way to scale-out your in-line network security inspection horizontally. Scaling inspection can be done with a single push of a button, or even automatically.
Fully integrated with your security policy and VM licensing
To achieve the ultimate in ease of use, the Corsa Security Orchestrator is fully integrated with the policy management and licensing systems of the firewall vendors within the Corsa Network Security Ecosystem.
Monitor VM clusters with confidence
Presented in a simple intuitive way, you get unprecedented levels of insight into what your network is doing, how VM clusters and individual VMs are performing, and the status of other elements inside the platform.
Easily manage multi-tenant network security
The Corsa Security Orchestrator makes the configuration of multiple tenants simple so you can combine multiple customers on the same infrastructure, or use multiple VM clusters for your own internal purposes.
Corsa Security Orchestrator Benefits
With stateful connection tracking for intelligent traffic steering to and from VMs, you can quickly and easily scale out unlimited inspection capacity.
Strong integration of licensing and policy management capabilities with firewall vendors enables zero-touch provisioning.
Extensive automation of bootstrap and initial configuration to load-balancing capability and software upgrades.
The single-pane-of-glass covers VM orchestration and monitoring to health check mechanisms for system performance.
Works with the Corsa Network Security Virtualization Platform
The Corsa Network Security Virtualization Platform is a turnkey 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.
