Technology Behind the Solution
Consistent, reliable security is a requirement for large-scale distributed networks. However, dedicated branch routers and security licenses are too expensive for small offices or individual teleworkers, and a software client does not always provide sufficient coverage, especially when corporate voice connectivity is needed.
Aerohive Branch on Demand solutions use patent-pending N-Way Cloud Proxy technology to provide enterprise-class security at a telecommuter price point. With Cloud Proxy, an administrator can configure security services, up to and including web application security, through the HiveManager interface and enforce branch security through a cloud-based web security service. If additional security services are desired for the branch and enabled through HiveManager, the Cloud Proxy functionality automatically separates general Internet traffic flows and sends them to Aerohive’s web security partners for scrubbing. This allows IT administrators to enforce corporate web usage policies consistently, regardless of user location, prevent advanced malware, and enable safe web application usage to every remote user.
