The Network is what enables delivery of applications and data to users and underpins revenue generation or service provision in any business or organisation. It must be secure.
Traditionally, networks are built on standard building blocks (switches/routers etc.) and security solutions applied afterwards - perimeter firewalls, intrusion prevention systems and the like.
The move to more hybrid networks – physical-vs-virtual-vs-cloud – means that traditional approaches simply cannot cope with the scale, automation requirements or the rate of change.
Most modern networks combine the use of physical data centres, bare metal or virtualised servers, cloud platforms and containers – and all of them require (at least) the same level of security. By taking a holistic approach based on security function such as policy consolidation, micro-segmentation or cloud access brokerage rather than a point product and ensuring all the functions integrate into a framework, Axial’s decades of experience ensures the whole is greater than the sum of the parts irrespective of where the data or application resides.
through consistent security across all platforms
through simplification and automation of security policy
Helps meet regulatory and compliance needs such as PCI and
GDPR and PCI
and avoid large scale upgrades
Embedding security into the network reduces operational overhead, increases visibility and helps generate meaningful intelligence for the business. By standardising security policy across the landscape, there are fewer errors and less time spent troubleshooting. It also forms a solid foundation layer for a level of automation or, indeed, moving to a full software defined security network.
