Cythera provides businesses with simple, affordable and secure way to connect your offices, datacenters and the cloud.
No more costly hardware deployments, management complexities, capacity constraints, outdated software, or restricted visibility.
The Cythera Secure Network Fabric utilises technology from Cato Networks to provide a secure access service edge network to protect from today’s threats to your business.
PROTECTION AGAINST TODAY’S SECURITY THREATS
The physical set up of today’s businesses has changed.
The internet has rapidly impacted how your customers, staff and suppliers interact with your business.
Businesses now rely on cloud based applications, mobile devices and untrusted networks to serve confidential data.
Today’s rapidly evolving business needs tightly integrated security protection to enable total security through any network, to any device, in any location.
Cythera couples tightly integrated cloud security services with SD-WAN connectivity and a global MPLS replacement backbone to provide a simple, affordable and enterprise-grade secure access service edge (SASE).
Cato Networks has built a full network security stack directly into a global backbone of interconnected Points of Presence (PoPs).
This architecture extends enterprise-grade network security protection for every end user and location without deploying a proliferation of edge security appliances.
Security inspection and enforcement are applied to both WAN, Cloud and Internet-bound traffic as well as TLS encrypted traffic.
Security policies within the Cythera Secure Network Fabric can be applied either company wide or to specific users and locations to secure access to on-premise applications, cloud data centres, and public cloud applications such as Office 365, Box and Salesforce.
Connections to your cloud providers (eg Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform) are terminated directly into the network fabric. This allows for rapid connectivity to core business applications without ever reducing your security posture.
Without the constraints of physical appliances, Cato Networks experts seamlessly update the cloud-based network fabric to address emerging threats and scale the cloud infrastructure to support any traffic volume. Our customers are relieved of the traditional demands of hybrid networking technologies; patching a sprawling appliance fleet and upgrading dated and underpowered hardware.
The Cythera Secure Network Fabric is built on a globally distributed, scalable, and redundant Points of Presence (PoPs). The PoPs are interconnected by SLA-backed global carrier transports.
The PoPs are meshed into a global overlay and continuously monitor the carrier’s latency and packet loss to determine the optimal path between any two locations.
The PoPs run Cato Network’s integrated network and security software stack to optimise and secure traffic flow.
Unlike traditional SD-WAN solutions, moving to the Cythera Secure Network Fabric doesn’t mean you lose your quality of service or high-performance WAN and low latency applications, such as voice and video, get the performance they need.
The Cythera Secure Network Fabric optimises last-mile connectivity through multiple techniques including application and link-aware policy-based routing, hybrid WAN support (MPLS+Internet), Active/Active link management, Forward Error Correction (FEC) for packet loss mitigation, and TCP Proxy for traffic acceleration. Unlike appliance-based SD-WAN solutions, the network fabric uniquely optimises both the last mile between the customer edges and the Cloud PoPs, and the middle mile on the Cato global backbone. This optimisation maximises throughput end-to-end by controlling packet flow throughout the entire route.
The Cythera Secure Network Fabric connects every mobile user to the Cato Cloud and provides secure and optimised access to enterprise resources in physical and cloud data centres, cloud applications and internet sites. All mobile access is protected against malicious web sites. Corporate security policies are seamlessly extended to control mobile access to sensitive data, both on-premises and in the cloud. No longer are your mobile endpoints the uncontrolled and unsecure component of your network.
The unique Cato Management Application enables full traffic visibility for your entire organisation’s network and a way to manage a unified policy across all users, locations, data and applications (both internal and Internet/Cloud-based). A single management portal for your entire network, with centralised reporting and policy generation.
Cythera’s monitoring and management service extends the services delivered by Cato in the Cloud. Cato customers can optionally reduce the workload of administering their Wide Area Network and Security suite by outsourcing the responsibility to the team at Cythera.
