NetFoundry for Extranet

Connect across your partners, suppliers, and app providers with your existing Internet connections with application level micro-segmentation for superior security and compliance.

The Normalization of Specialization

The concept of adopting modularity to enable agility is the cornerstone of successful digital transformations, but modular specialization is paying dividends in a macro sense as well. Businesses are finding it less costly and timelier to partner with specialist firms to extend their capabilities, enhance their operations, enable efficiencies, and attract new customers. While historically, logistical partnerships have been the predominant driver for extranet connectivity solutions, the landscape is broadening.

Nailing up unique VPNs to every partner grows to be exponentially difficult and risky. Establishing secure, reliable connectivity between entities in the form of extranets has always been rife with management complexities and access control headaches. On top of the management overhead of VPNs and their related infrastructure, the process of ensuring adequately zoned access to each partner and their resources for security and compliance can be next-to impossible.

NetFoundry eliminates the need to nail up unique VPNs to every partner while providing zero trust, application level micro-segmentation for superior security and compliance. We remove the infrastructure and push the perimeter to the application, device, and user endpoints. This simplifies connectivity at scale while providing granular security that meets and exceeds even the most stringent compliance standards.

The NetFoundry Solution

NetFoundry eases your growing extranet woes by enabling instant creation of software-only business-to-business AppWANs, which are context-specific private networks, over existing Internet circuits.

NetFoundryís application-level micro segmentation, IAM integration, and zero trust architecture enables business partners, clouds, or sites to connect without hardware or the need to nail up complex and expensive VPNs, and NetFoundry's network control fabric automatically optimizes traffic across AppWANs to provide up to 5x the performance of VPNs.

NetFoundry's self-service platform is ready when you are and is delivered as a suite of hardened services, standalone client drivers, and a user-friendly console and APIs with statuses and metrics. You use the orchestration console or APIs to define your AppWANs which abstract the network from the underlying infrastructure in much the same way that containers and virtual machines abstract applications from underlying compute infrastructure. Simply add endpoints and gateways virtually, associate them with one another, click, and your software only extranet is up and running in minutes. The process is fast, easy, and can be repeated infinitely, seamlessly scaling with the growth of your business and your partnerships.
