NetFoundry for Cloud
Zero Trust, agile, enterprise-grade performance, & the simplicity of a cloud-native, software-only solution built specifically to connect any application, anywhere, at anytime.
Unshackle the Network
The agility enabled by modern application development practices has been central to rapidly accelerating innovation and digital transformation. However, traditional networks and connectivity models were not designed to support the modern application environment, adding complexity to deployments, slowing time-to-market, and stifling innovation.
The Trouble With Traditional Networks
● Traditional VPN technology cannot support the agility required by cloud applications
● Complex of management and connection of multi-cloud environments
● Inflexible and limited MPLS and SD-WAN solutions
● Increased security risks associated with on-net trust and single-dimensional TLS encryption
● Constraints of being locked-into telcos and network providers
● Performance issues from "hair pinning" edge-to-cloud traffic through core network
● Lack of zero trust application segmentation capabilities
A New Networking Paradigm
Remote Access For Cloud Developers
Secure remote access into a public cloud environment is a long standing and common problem. Developers must be able to log into servers, databases, and other systems over the Internet from their homes, coffee shops, and other remote locations. Traditionally, VPNs have been used to make the connection, but when each developer on a large team needs up to four connections per project, things get complicated fast.
NetFoundry makes scaling Zero Trust connectivity for developers simple, infinitely scalable, and fast. Plus, our integrations makes automation for DevOps lifecycle efficiency a breeze.Find Out How
Simple Application Stack Service Connections
The advent of microservices has resulted in apps that depend on data from other systems residing somewhere else: on the Internet, in a data center, or in another cloud instance. Providing secure, Zero Trust connections to remote microservices, and the processes involved with establishing them, are cumbersome and complex with traditional solutions such as site-to-site VPNs and SSL/TLS connections across the Internet. NetFoundry can easily establish, and even automate dark connections directly to the microservice from across the Internet instantly.Learn More
Most organizations are turning to multi-cloud architectures as an increasing percentage of IT infrastructure is being virtualized. Unfortunately, managing connectivity to, and between multiple cloud environments is a daunting task.
NetFoundry was designed to make building and augmenting Zero Trust connections within multi-cloud environments easy and seamless. For example, our virtual gateways, which connect your AppWANs to cloud instances, come pre-built to integrate quickly and seamlessly with popular providers such as AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and IBM Bluemix. They are also available as VMIs for ESXi 5.0 or greater for more custom deployments.Learn More
Automate Network Connectivity
If a new VPC or VNET is to connect back to an enterprise network using traditional means (VPN, EVC, MPLS), a manual configuration change on the corporate network is necessary to establish the connection. This process can delay the roll out of the new cloud instance by weeks, or even months depending on the type of connection.
With VPNs, each VPC or VNET may require a separate, individual connection to the data center, which is a scalability nightmare. If an MPLS connection is required, installations and interconnections can be expensive and result in extended downtime. NetFoundry makes Zero Trust network automation simple and fast.
The NetFoundry Solution
NetFoundry provides Zero Trust, agile, enterprise-grade performance, and the simplicity of a cloud-native, software-only solution built specifically to connect any application, anywhere, at anytime. This means instant, agile connectivity, across any set of clouds and networks. No hardware. No VPNs. No private circuits.
NetFoundry is unlike SD-WAN and MPLS, which only provide site-to-site networking. We also replace point-to-point VPNs with a centralized, instantaneous, cloud-optimized solution, managed inside existing DevOps toolsets.
The NetFoundry platform is a software-only connectivity solution that enables our customers and partners to instantly spin up secure, performant,application-specific, zero trust networks called AppWANs with public Internet reach and scale. AppWANs are created and managed using secure, developer-friendly web-based orchestration tools and APIs tailored to fit within application development and operation life cycles.
Within AppWANs, endpoints route each session across the NetFoundry network fabric, a secure, global Internet overlay orchestrated by a cloud-native, instance-specific network controller which integrates with business and application systems such as IAM, IoT identity, and cloud policies, while securing traffic across multiple layers and adaptively optimizing performance and throughput.
Application teams can easily configure and operate AppWANs, which are one-to-many discrete, application-specific micro-segmented networks. EachAppWAN is a selected subset of endpoints associated to an application with which, authorized endpoints are allowed to exclusively communicate,creating a zero trust relationship. NetFoundry AppWANs enable non-expert Line-of-Business and IT project teams to quickly and independently spin up and scale out compliant, performant, Internet-distributed applications as easily as they spin up services inside a public or private cloud.
NetFoundry is "dark": NetFoundry's network overlay fabric provides access to private VPC resourceswithout exposing anything to the public Internet to be attacked or breached.
Authenticate Before Connect: NetFoundry's network overlay fabric authenticates all connection requests before the connection is permitted. Conversely, VPN, RDP, and SSH allow connections to be made before authentication, introducing vulnerability.
Least Privilege Access: NetFoundry's network overlay fabric enables developer access to be finely tuned to their exact access requirements by an administrator through application micro-segments called AppWANs.
Agility Through Automation
NetFoundry can be fully automated by APIs, and Infrastructure-As-Code tools, such as Terraform. As a result, secure application connections can be set up right along with the rest of the application stack by the DevOps team. Since the connections are expressed as "code", they can be placed in version control and repeatedly executed for consistent results that are insulated from manual error.
