Opportunity and Obstacles
Edge compute can improve user experience, decrease costs and strengthen security. However, managing distributed compute can be difficult. A key challenge is enabling each site to dynamically route different workloads to different compute, without the costs and complexity of VPN, SD-WAN and private mobile APNs.
Microsoft and NetFoundry enable these distributed compute models. NetFoundry provides the zero trust networking as NaaS - no secure networking infrastructure deployments! Businesses reap the benefits of edge and distributed compute, without being saddled with the costs and complexities of secure networking.
Empower developers to easily deploy apps
Zero trust, latency-optimized, dynamic routing from each app or endpoint to Public MEC, Private MEC, Azure and other compute locations. No backhaul - the app routes each session directly to each location.
Eliminate infrastructure deployments
Use NetFoundry SDK to embed zero trust networking inside the app, as code. No agent or VPN needed! App workloads can now leverage Azure Public MEC, Private MEC and Azure.
Simplify and improve visibility and control
- Integrations with Azure, Intune, AAD.
- Diagnostics provide app-level visibility and control.
- Hosted NaaS simple - orgs don't even deploy network controllers.
Zero trust security and compliance
- Close all inbound firewall ports for all app and API servers
- mTLS for any device or app with secure identity and authentication for every workload
- App-level microsegmentation, including for PCI and HIPAA data
Replace VPNs, SD-WAN deployments or private mobile APN dependencies with SaaS. Instant, zero trust networking, with centralized identities, policies and routing across all of your sites.
NetFoundry provides it all as Zero Trust NaaS, including the Fabric. You can also self host with OpenZiti's zero trust networking platform (open source).
