What is SD-SECURITY?

    Software-defined security (SD-SECURITY) provides you the central management of network security, compliance, and optimal bandwidth usage across all of your network components. At all of your locations, you benefit from highly automated security features from cloud-managed next-generation UTM firewalls and other network components such as routers. By means of a clearly structured, intuitive user interface, individual applications and website access can be blocked or permitted for specific network segments. Sensitive Internet traffic can be routed via a VPN connection to the company headquarters or, if required, supplemented with cloud-based UTM functions via a local break-out.

    Advantages of the LANCOM SD-SECURITY solution

    Applications are allowed or blocked from a cloud (symbol for the LANCOM Management Cloud).

    Security rules defined for the entire network

    Security rules are clearly defined in the LANCOM Management Cloud. You can block particular applications, categories, services, and ports. You define which Internet activities are allowed or prohibited for your user groups in direct accordance with your company's security policy. When you’re ready, you roll out the defined rules to the whole of your network. While the LANCOM R&S®Unified Firewalls detect up to 1,000 applications, the 100 most important applications can be directly selected with LCOS-based LANCOM routers and VPN gateways.

     

    Flexible integration of new security components into network infrastructures

    The LANCOM Management Cloud gives you the flexibility to expand your network with new devices, such as a LANCOM R&S®Unified Firewall, easily and at any time. SD-SECURITY can be implemented by a LANCOM R&S®Unified Firewall in stand-alone operation or in combination with a LANCOM router.

    Central application management (layer 7) with LANCOM router and firewall

    Application management allows targeted blocking or redirection of applications across device boundaries. Adjustments to the configuration—such as changes in the use of business applications such as Office365, or new security rules regarding streaming services like Netflix—are easy to implement with just a few mouse clicks. The filter rules of the LANCOM R&S®Unified Firewall and the LCOS-based LANCOM routers and VPN gateways, which can be used individually or in combination, give you full control over your applications.

    Full control over compliance

    SD-SECURITY in the LANCOM Management Cloud offers the transparency of maximum visibility over all devices and activities in your network. Around the clock, the status and availability of all devices are visualized in real time. The Security & Compliance Dashboard centrally monitors the network for compliance with all security requirements. You have a constant overview of password-policy compliance, whether device licenses and firmware versions are up to date, or if services at the various locations have gone critical. You can even monitor attacks and the WAN connections between remote locations. Rapid intervention is possible at any time.
