Managed Services Still Spooky? Time For Arista Edge Threat Management

by Fleur Doidge, on November 7, 2022

Securing the endpoint when the network perimeter has all but vanished and end users themselves -- never mind devices -- have taken to appearing any time or place can be a real horror show.

Which is why, at QBS, we continue to partner with Arista Edge Threat Management (ETM, formerly Untangle).

As Arista says, traditional access controls are being increasingly replaced with edge-less, multi-cloud, multi-device collaboration across multiple platforms that are accessible by numerous devices in multiple locations.

This has ultimately meant a rethink of security, especially in the cloud and for the channel, resulting in innovations designed from the ground up for this new world -- including NG Firewall, Micro Edge, and Command Center as part of a Cognitive Unified Edge (CUE) offering for the commercial and distributed enterprise.

For instance, NG Firewall simplifies network security and management with a single, modular, software platform designed to reduce cost for the end user organisation.

Products like Command Center can quickly connect geographically dispersed locations using a mesh topology with auto-provisioning of VPN tunnels.

MSPs out of the shadows - in partnership with Arista and QBS

Originally designed in a small footprint for organisations with limited IT resources, Arista ETM delivers enterprise grade browser-based content filtering, VPN, application-based shaping, and defence from advanced threats.

And Arista continues to confirm its dedication to securing the edge and delivering benefits through channel partners, including MSPs and into the mid-market space, as the threat landscape to manage expands.

That's part of why the company is sponsoring the QBS stand at Managed Services Summit North in Manchester on 16 November. Come and have a chat with us then.

It's going to be a great event, addressing the key trends and issues for managed services providers, from success in digital and business transformation to future advances in cloud, AI, automation and XaaS.

Of course we're always happy to discuss any 'scary' subjects too, whether related to the rise of cyber threats at the edge or simply how to maximise the potential of solutions and support offerings. Contact QBS:MSP directly via this online form.
