Aruba ESP enhancements bring security from the edge to the cloud

Jakarta (medialnews) – Aruba, part of Hewlett Packard Enterprise, announced the security integration of edge at cloud (Edge-to-Cloud) for Aruba ESP (Edge Services Platform).

New enhancements include the integration of the network access security control platform, ClearPass Policy Manager, with Aruba EdgeConnect SD-WAN. board platform, which was previously called Silver Peak.

Next, the integration of Aruba Threat Defense with the EdgeConnect platform and the expansion of the Aruba ESP multi-vendor security partner ecosystem, so that enterprise segment customers have the freedom to choose and execute. security components based on cloud, secure access service edge (SASE).

Aruba, in a statement received Thursday in Jakarta, said that with various enhancements to Aruba’s ESP, businesses can accelerate their digital transformation journey from edge at cloud.

“When many businesses face challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic and ‘work from anywhere’ becomes the new normal, adopting servicesaccommodation in the cloud even faster. This change made a transformation data center conventional networks and MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) and VPN with SASE architecture cloud native, is becoming more and more urgent. The SASE architecture will make network services more secure and dynamic, while providing comprehensive data protection, ”the statement said.

At the same time, it is said that digital transformation has also resulted in a significant increase in the number of IoT devices connected to the network. This poses new challenges that cannot be solved by cloud-based security alone.

Because IoT devices are agentless, IT cannot download security client or direct traffic from the device to security services cloud, therefore Zero Trust security must be implemented on site edge WAN (wide area network).

“To understand the potential cloud and digital transformation, companies need edge over the WAN to combine security over on the spot and on cloud. Thus, SASE can protect users connected in SaaS and public cloud platform, while protecting IoT devices requiring zero-trust identity-based security, ”the statement said.

A recent report by communications research firm 650 Group highlighted the growing interest in SASE and found that companies need to assess their approach to security in light of current technological developments.

“When organizations move to Zero Trust and SASE architectures, they will implement security services several suppliers provided cloud, and all SASE components do not have to come from a single vendor. Aruba’s approach strikes a balance between presenting the security function to edge WAN and free up customers to choose to integrate security services cloud Chris DePuy, Founder and Technology Analyst at 650 Group.

In the statement explained that the integration of ClearPass Policy Manager with the platform edge Aruba EdgeConnect for SD-WAN can make applications smarter by adding information about user identities, IoT devices, miscellaneous role existing, and the security posture to form the basis of SASE WAN edge.

Combining role intelligence and security posture with dynamic segmentation capabilities removes the complexity associated with implementing hundreds of VLANs for every class of users and devices.

Meanwhile, the integration of Aruba Threat Defense with the platform edge SD-WAN, Aruba EdgeConnect, will expand the range of capabilities intrusion detection and prevention (IDS / IPS) to EdgeConnect, both physically and virtually.

This allows the EdgeConnect platform to leverage the Aruba Threat infrastructure, sharing malicious threat information between Aruba Central and EdgeConnect for excellent network visibility.

With capacity Unified threat management (UTM), these companies benefit from full side security as well as secure local internet links from their branch offices.
