As businesses are becoming more and more dependent on the internet, keeping the network secure is of paramount importance. Threats to the security of critical business assets are becoming more imminent via non-corporate entities, whether through a consumer device, poorly secured partner network or branch office. New stats from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) reveal a fourfold rise in reported data hacking attacks in 2018. Given SD-WAN’s use of multiple services, increasing use of internet services, and the multi-cloud environment, customers have more interest in making sure their network is secure.
Delivering FaaS (Firewall as a Service) over top of an SD-WAN (Software-Defined Wide-Area Network) platform provides the network with always-on security to keep your customers satisfied. We allow our partners to select the Firewall vendor of their choosing to integrate with our SD-WAN.
SD-WAN elevates your FaaS delivery in many ways. You’re able to privatize each customer network, build site-to-multisite routing groups and centralize customers’ firewalls, keeping the good data in and the bad data out. This takes away the stress of having to keep a close eye on all your sites 24/7. SD-WAN allows your customers to monitor and control the incoming and outgoing network traffic to identify overall network capacity and enforce entry/exit rules associated with applications. Whether it’s Site-to-Site or Site-to-Multisite, you can effectively protect your customers’ corporate data with SD-WAN.
“Bundling Multapplied’s SD-WAN with my hosted Firewall solution gave me more efficient WAN performance with lower bandwidth pollution. By adding Security to the SD-WAN, Omninet blocks unwanted traffic at the edge before unwanted traffic uses bandwidth or creates problems.” – Andrew Bagrin, Founder and CEO at Omninet.

SD-WAN allows you to deliver end-to-end QoS (Quality of Service) over any internet connection available. Customizable QoS profiles enable you to allocate bandwidth into “Classes of Service”. You can determine how much bandwidth a customer will have for high priority data, such as FaaS, with the click of a button. You could allocate over 50% of your bandwidth to FaaS if you wanted, it’s completely up to you. This ensures your customers are getting the level of security that they require.
We all know security breaches can be detrimental to corporations – SD-WAN gives you session continuity, which ensures that your FaaS is always up-and-running. Link aggregation stacks the bandwidth of multiple connections into one large data pipe, providing automatic data failover to the live connections should one fail. Set a connection to “failover mode” and it will seamlessly come live and assume the data of the lost connection in under 300 milliseconds. This keeps your customers IP addresses the same so that you don’t have re-initialize their Firewall in the event of an outage.
