Security From Arista Networks Targets Expanding Threat Landscape
by Fleur Doidge, on September 15, 2022
The risks to organisations from Internet of Things (IoT) and edge computing deployments look to be increasing -- making for opportunities that more channel partners will be looking to address.
Arista Networks Edge Threat Management, incorporating network perimeter threat management solutions from Untangle, can be a key tool for managed services providers and other channel partners answering this challenge for both large and small customer organisations.
Data-driven, client to cloud networking solutions from Arista benefit from Cognitive Unified Edge (CUE) Management -- delivering a more holistic approach to managing the plethora of edge threats and challenges.
CUE can assist commercial customers to accelerate new services and technology innovations while consolidating various security and networking functions into an 'edge as a service' cloud-managed solution.
With CUE, there's also plug-and-play simplicity and workflows for small enterprise LAN, Wi-Fi, and micro WAN connectivity services.
At QBS, we're promoting Arista's NG Firewall (formerly the Untangle NG Firewall) a comprehensive commercial-grade network security platform, its ETM Dashboard, a cloud centralised edge threat management platform, and the lightweight Micro Edge device for branch office connectivity.
Dedicated hardware appliances can be shipped with NG Firewall or Micro Edge pre-installed, ready for zero-touch provisioning and in a variety of sizes to suit.
Yes, there are multiple network security offerings on the market, but there's nothing that suits every deployment. That's part of why we strongly feel that it's the partnership that's key to realising full benefits.
Meanwhile, special pricing is sometimes available to public-sector and local government bodies as well as non-governmental organisations and private schools from time to time -- contact QBS to find out more.
