Reduced change management overhead: In a traditional enterprise distributed network, different sets of security systems are scattered across the network in numerous physical locations. If a network configuration change is needed, the management, reconfiguration and updating of this large number of devices would be substantial. The nGenius PFS solutions enable users to share network security systems locally or globally. Fewer devices mean fewer configurations needed, and fewer service contracts to maintain.
Reduced risk: nGenius PFS enables transparent network testing and validation of security tools using live traffic to efficiently transition from POC to production. The installation of an inline device typically requires an outage window and adds risk to an environment’s physical layer via additional infrastructure complexity. nGenius PFS allows inline devices to be integrated into an environment via software configuration rather than through physical cabling, thus greatly reducing time and risk.
