Enterprises under pressure to adopt cloud computing often face significant internal infrastructure. Enterprises need a next-generation infrastructure security solution that allows them to cut through business red tape, making cloud migration and onboarding a seamless transition.
The CoIP® (Cloud over IP) platform offers numerous advanced security capabilities through a software defined Enclave. These are separate and independent security features that can be deployed as standalone or together to protect application workloads in any cloud.
Driven by the increased business agility and cost savings of digital transformation, enterprise IT are in consensus that leasing cloud is more efficient than investing capital to build proprietary datacenters. With today’s fast-changing business requirements, enterprises are embracing migration of their datacenters to the cloud.
Zentera’s CoIP Enclave™ solution creates a Software-Defined Perimeter (SDP) that wraps authenticated endpoints (i.e. VMs, containers, bare metal servers etc.) into a single unified network. All machines inside the SDP are effectively isolated from the outside endpoints, even on the same subnet.
The cloud is quickly becoming a critical part of enterprise computing. Enterprises are looking for a unified network fabric to support application portability. However, they are not in control of the infrastructure within their “cloud islands”. They are looking for a solution which allows them to transport applications from their datacenters into the cloud. CoIP (Cloud over IP) is the next generation hybrid cloud network and security.
True business agility is required at all levels of the business, including operations and infrastructure. Without an agile foundation, management will never be able to pivot fast enough to react to new customer opportunities, competitive threats, or new regulations which change the market landscape.
Traditional enterprise security infrastructures relied on corporate firewalls to protect sensitive resources. This “castle-wall” approach evolved as a convenient way to add security controls, and has shaped enterprises’ existing trust models. Internal users are typically given access permissions with a standard corporate trust level, while external users must go through a stronger authentication procedure to be granted with access. Once access is approved, a VPN is typically used to connect the external users to the corporate “castle.”
Manufacturers are constantly looking to upgrade their factories; infrastructure improvements and automation can bring down costs, improve yields, and help the manufacturer beat the competition. Most of the time, upgrading involves plugging new and intelligent computing or even cloud-based services into existing factory networks. However, many factories were designed with shared flat networks for legacy reasons, which provides an ideal platform for cybersecurity attack proliferation. With costs of idling a production line potentially exceeding $1 million per hour, manufacturers need effective ways to segment and protect this converged IT/OT environment.
