Today, Internet data represent a high percentage of your company’s WAN traffic and consume a huge amount of bandwidth. This type of traffic is constantly growing due to the usage of more and more Cloud-based applications, such as Microsoft Office365 or Salesforce.com. In traditional VPNs, the Internet traffic is often backhauled from branch offices to a distant headquarter. But wouldn’t it make more sense to offload this Internet traffic locally instead of jamming your global WAN with it?
Based on your company’s traffic profile, you can have the ideal access designs customized according to each site’s needs. This is because ngena offers a choice of single or redundant Internet Public Lines (IPL) or Ethernet Private Lines (EPL). These access designs come in easy-to-understand T-shirt size concepts from XS to XL+, giving your company the flexibility to select exactly the design needed for the traffic profile and level of redundancy of any office type – from a branch office to a data center or central headquarter.
Along with this, ngena offers multiple ways of offloading business data to the Internet. You can use either Local Internet breakout directly from your sites, or utilize regional, secure Internet Breakout via ngena’s secure data centers. ngena edge routers provide a stateful firewall for direct outbound Internet access. ngena also provides industry-standard X86-based CPEs with additional Virtual Network Functions providing security services. Furthermore, we offer a direct integration to Zscaler’s Cloud gateway to enable secure local Internet access. With ngena’s suite of Cloud connectivity options and different access types to connect to the Internet, enterprises can reap the benefits of Cloud applications without having to worry about security or performance.
