OEMs, Fortune 100 and startups know that network appliances running securityapplications are the vigilant watchmen of a network. Designed and built to reside on anetwork with other hardware, software and services, these appliances can be centralizedfor a cost-effective security-focused network management solution. Customize thedesign and build and that appliance is custom-made and ready for unified threatmanagement (UTM), intrusion detection systems (IDS), intrusion prevention system(IPS), data loss prevention (DLP), and more.
Why choose a custom appliance for security as an OEM, Fortune 100 or startup? Hereare a few reasons to consider custom for your new solution.
- Current appliance isn’t secure. A custom appliance designed and manufacturedin the U.S.A will ensure the integrity of the hardware vs a State-sponsored,network hacking, enabled through ‘off-the-shelf’ nefarious state built networkappliances.
- Changing needs. With new demands being placed on the network, issues likeincreased remote workers or seeing employees double after a companymerger/transition? Custom features help meet changing needs, such as morestorage, faster connections, designing in precision time protocol (PTP) orintegrating a trusted platform module (TPM) and other functionality for increasedsecurity
- Increased productivity. Fast hardware acts and reacts quickly to secure thenetwork. Slow hardware adversely affects a system’s overall productivity, andcan increase the need for support. Fast or slow, a custom setup will provideflexibility to enable made-to-order productivity
Custom solutions are a scalable approach toward meeting a variety of unique networkneeds for different size companies. For a network appliance, this scalable approachprovides a cost-effective means of getting precisely what is needed regardless ofwhether it is in a unified threat management (UTM), intrusion detection systems (IDS),intrusion prevention system (IPS), data loss prevention (DLP), or having the hardware tochoose the security application. The right solution will have hardware integrity, have anactive lifespan, meet changing needs, and be productive.
