Integrated with Blockbit Platform 2.0, the new version of the platform also offers enhanced network management features and zero-touch functionality, which allows for a completely remote configuration.
Blockbit, a global cybersecurity product company, presents its Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) solution innovation, technology that makes long-distance communications management defined intelligently, dynamically, flexibly, securely and cost-effectively.
“More than ever, businesses need solutions that ensure their networks are always secure and ready to take full advantage of the latest applications, with the highest performance in everyday life. Our solution responds to these demands, now with new resources to optimize operational efficiency and virtual protection for customers, regardless of their industry,” says Marcel Mathias, Director of R&D at Blockbit.
Now available on the market, the tool combines load balancing, band limit per link, redundancy and intelligent selection in the best way possible, as well as having all the spreads of the Blockbit 2.0 Platform, the new version of the company’s network security platform.
Fully developed in Brazil, the SD-WAN 2.0 solution differentiates the generation of detailed reports on data consumption and traffic. Another important point aspect is that, through a simple and intuitive interface, the solution allows to create policies based on routing by services, applications, user, group, mac address, IP address, network zone and band control usage, having great flexibility in communication between branches, data centers, based infrastructures in the cloud and SaaS (Software as a Service) applications, or even Internet access in general.
With remote deployment capability, the platform also features Zero-Touch Provisioning (ZTP), a development leap in centralized management services. The feature allows, for example, to automatically provision new branch office units in a network without any technical manual contact, reducing costs and time for businesses.
“Today, with the growth of electronic commerce remote work, hundreds of organizations in the most diverse segments face a huge challenge, which is to balance traffic reconciled with security in data transmission, choosing which are the critical and priority activities for generating business,” says Marcel. “With the innovation of Blockbit’s SD-WAN solution, the leaders of these companies can evaluate this scenario with more agility and make the necessary adjustments without complications,” says the director.
The novelty of Blockbit already registers the demand of segments that maintain their activities during the Covid-19 pandemic and need advanced solutions to guarantee the best balance and redundancy of the traffic with security and the differential of remote configuration. As an example, the director of Blockbit has mentioned the interest of food networks (restaurants and snack bars), legal and supermarkets.
Another advantage of the SD-WAN solution is the integration with other Blockbit Platform 2.0 services such as Web Filter, SSL Inspection, Intrusion Prevention, Threat Protection, and Application Control.
In addition, Blockbit Platform 2.0 features a new panel and real-time monitors, with logs that allow you to view the entire connection path through the platform modules, providing a deep understanding of network security.
“Our commitment is to deliver products and services that meet our customers’ demands, bringing market innovations and more functionality to expand the manageability and performance of modern companies,” says Marcel.
