Reduce the number of security risks by inspecting 100% of traffic, even when encrypted, without impacting network performance
As cybercriminals become more sophisticated, Security Architects are faced with the daunting task of trying to stay one step ahead. When they don’t have complete visibility into all traffic then their ability to protect sensitive data and corporate information becomes impossible. That’s why designing and selecting the appropriate security architecture is critical to reduce the attack surface while reducing cost and complexity. So how can a Security Architect minimize threats and maintain a strong security posture in today’s digital era?
Corporations put their trust in Security Architects and rely on them to implement solutions that best protect their assets from cyberattacks and data breaches. Although there are various solutions out there, they generally offer a single capability, which ties the Security Architects hands when they need to quickly scale or deploy new security technologies to identify and stop emerging threats. Here are a few other challenges that arise:
Inspect all traffic
You must inspect all traffic to find threats, which is difficult when inspecting encrypted traffic impacts network performance.
It becomes difficult to scale for network growth when you are locked into single purpose security appliances.
When you continuously need new tools and capabilities to deal with threats, a limited budget can limit overall protection.
How to Solve Them
The answer is to build a dynamic security perimeter that offers unwavering performance and allows you to scale security functions horizontally rather than always buy bigger boxes. A load balancer designed for service chaining allows you to distribute traffic across multiple security devices, block traffic before it enters the service chain and copy traffic needing additional inspection. It’s also important to have the following capabilities:
Visibility into all traffic
Inspect 100% of traffic at all times, even when encrypted so you’re never blind to an emerging threat.
Easily add other perimeter security functions such as Firewall, IDS/IPS etc.; without impacting performance.
Purpose-built for security service chaining
Set yourself up for growth with a solution built for 100Gbps connections and cloud deployments.
Unlike traditional security appliances and load balancers, Corsa solutions are designed for service chaining network security functions in real-time for 10Gbps to 100Gbps connections. It’s built to provide unwavering performance and unbelievable simplicity to properly scale your network security in cloud and virtualized environments. Now, Security Architects can reduce the number of security risks within the organization while still handling network growth by evolving to a software-defined perimeter.
