NetFoundry is a remote-first company, but we are still pausing our periodic in-person meetings due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus).  We all need to do our part to aid in containment.

Not only is NetFoundry a remote-first company, but our platform enables secure networking – including work from home VPN replacement.  In the words of Shawn Campion, CEO of Integro Technologies, a Control Engineering’s System Integrator of the Year and the largest machine vision only company in North America (quote link), who previously used the NetFoundry platform for IoT and Edge Networking, and is now using the same platform for remote workers:

Due to Coronavirus, businesses are in the uncomfortable position of needing to cost effectively and very quickly support remote workers (work from home), while needing to maintain security and performance.  NetFoundry’s work from home VPN replacement solution is helping in all four of those areas:

  1. Cost. We are providing our Work From Home solution for free through the end of June in most countries.
  2. Simple. Our solution is up and running in minutes.  No hardware.  Cloud-orchestrated.
  3. Secure. Our industry leading zero trust networking solution is more secure than VPN.
  4. Performance. Our solution provides at least 200% performance improvement for most apps compared to VPN.

Free through the end of June.

NetFoundry will cover the cost, crediting your account, for all remote worker security through the end of June for existing and new USA customers, and many other countries.  After June, the standard USA rate is about $1 per user per day, depending on numbers of users and the use of other NetFoundry services.

Simple.  Be the air traffic controller – not the VPN tunnel digger.  Private data center and public cloud apps.

NetFoundry doesn’t sell you shovels to dig VPNs with.  Trade local configuration for the centralized management of a cloud-orchestrated platform.  The platform enables you to spin up connections, anywhere, in minutes, and manage them centrally.  NetFoundry is cloud optimized with AWS networking optimization and Azure networking optimization, but also enables your private cloud hosted apps.  Unlike most, NetFoundry does not require Active Directory, SAML or IAM integrations.  Nor does it require PKI or certificate loading.  It is all built into the solution.

Secure.  Zero trust addresses known VPN vulnerabilities.

Leading security orgs and governments have warned us against using VPNs for remote users.  Here is the recent warning from the US Government’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), warning businesses against increased reliance on VPNs due to Coronavirus induced work from home.  CISA is working on their latest security framework, TIC 3.0, and says it is aligned with zero trust networking architectures.

NetFoundry’s Zero Trust networking, with its SASE architecture, is endorsed by other leading experts, orgs and government organizations as well.  In a nutshell, micro-segmented “NetFoundry AppWANs” only provide network access to specific apps, after they have securely identified, authenticated and authorized.  Learn more about NetFoundry’s industry-leading zero trust networking.

High performance.

VPNs notoriously impair performance. NetFoundry’s AppWANs improves it.  The results are at least 200% improvement for most apps, as compared to VPN.  This is because the Internet itself (more specifically BGP, how ISPs route packets, and TCP) doesn’t optimize performance.  NetFoundry’s Global Fabric, delivered as NaaS, does.  NetFoundry’s Fabric is accessed, automatically, from any Internet connection.  NetFoundry was selected by Microsoft as 1 of just 5 networking solutions in the world to optimize Office 365 networking, and the only 1 of those 5 to also offer a remote worker, work from home, VPN replacement solution.
