A Turnkey Virtualization Approach to Scaling Traffic Inspection and Threat Protection
Despite spending lots of time and money on security solutions, large enterprises are still struggling with encrypted traffic inspection: encrypted traffic, which now accounts for 75+%, causes security appliance performance to drop by up to 90%. And if you can’t decrypt the traffic then it’s not possible for NGFW features to work properly and increase threat protection.
To scale encrypted traffic inspection and other network security services, you need to leverage virtualization. For high capacity links, this is the only feasible approach, since full traffic inspection can only be done with a greater number of processors sharing the load, rather than with a bigger, specialized, single-purpose appliance.
But to take advantage of virtualization, it must be turnkey. Like we see with hyperconverged infrastructures for storage, the various elements of this solution must be delivered as a package. Then, it can be ordered and priced using a cloud model and delivered as a service that operates seamlessly within the customer’s existing security stacks.
Corsa Security Platform
The turnkey Corsa Network Security Virtualization Platform makes it possible to scale encrypted traffic inspection and threat protection, without degrading performance on high-capacity networks. By tightly integrating virtualization with intelligent orchestration, Corsa Security streamlines deployment, management and operations of virtualized next generation firewall (NGFW) arrays for large networks.
