    Delivered by SASE Overlay

    Firewalls are essential to current models of cybersecurity, but they are part of the network infrastructure and implemented on a topological edge. That is, IT must find a way to route packets to them for traffic filtering. This task is becoming far more difficult in the era of distributed applications and compute, especially in hybrid and multicloud, which has stressed IP network management to its limit.

    CoIP Access Platform completely changes this paradigm. Through its SASE overlay approach, CoIP Access Platform inserts firewalls and other required security functions as services at the application edge, rather than at the edge of network topology. It's a "security first" model that elastically provisions security controls with dynamic business applications and user access, rather than fixed, static infrastructure. Onboarded endpoints and applications are always secured, no matter where they move in the physical network.

    Zero Trust Firewall Mesh

    Modern firewalls use rules based on IP addresses or subnets, which represent an endpoint's identity. By definition, this model is incompatible with Zero Trust. Implementing policy with a mesh of standard firewalls is very difficult and error-prone due to this dependence on network topology as identity.

    CoIP Access Platform fundamentally changes the paradigm with strong Zero Trust authentication of user and endpoint identity. It raises the bar on the NGFW concept by incorporating Zero Trust factors, such as software application identity, into a policy decision.  Such policies, enforced on the application and endpoint edge and decoupled from the network infrastructure, are far simpler to define and maintain.

    Powerful rules can be applied to authenticated users, taking into account complex considerations such as geolocation, the OS of the user's machine, and the client application used, making it finally possible to specify and observe granular access to specific resources at the user and endpoint level.

    What is Zero Trust? >


    One Policy, Globally Enforced

    CoIP Access Platform enforces a single, end-to-end policy model that specifies the user, endpoint, and application identity on both the source and destination.

    This model provides dramatic operational savings over traditional network security infrastructure, which require rules for various applications to be coupled together into a single policy statement, to be applied at that point in the network. Rooted in identity rather than the IP network details, CoIP Access Platform policies decouple applications, and do not need to be rewritten if users and endpoints move - for example, due to a migration from one cloud to another.
