Secure connectivity across physical, virtual, and cloud environments
Flexible deployment options
Tempered Networks’ HIPswitches support physical hardware, virtual appliances, and cloud environments, which enables organizations to achieve secure connectivity for any device, anywhere in the world.
With their integrated capabilities such as cellular modem with automatic failover, HIPswitches eliminate the need for customers to purchase multiple security and connectivity appliances to achieve secure connectivity over underlying IP networks. For example, instead of using costly ISDN or MPLS lines to securely communicate with equipment in remote locations, our customers are instead using cellular-enabled HIPswitches to communicate over cheaper public cellular networks.
The HIPrelay introduces identity-based routing to overcome the previously unmanageable barriers and impassable network borders, which have made true host-to-host networking impossible to achieve until now. In conjunction with Tempered Networks’ HIP Service enforcement points, the HIPrelay can easily network and encrypt communication between any distributed and previously non-routable hosts or systems spanning separate networks from any location, across any connectivity medium. The IP schema used and whether a system is static or dynamically addressed becomes irrelevant. It dramatically simplifies the ability to move the network perimeter and its security closer to a specific resource, providing a more resilient and secure network without the typical operational and logistical constraints.
VP of Solutions Architecture Marc Kaplan on the HIPrelay
Identity-based relays, deployed individually or in geographically distributed clusters, transform how enterprise organizations network, provision, and secure devices and resources across their remote, enterprise and cloud infrastructures. They also help cut unnecessary investment on point networking and security products.
It’s now possible to dynamically and easily network any device or networks-- across any public, private or hybrid network, completely secured by crypto-identities. With this uniquely powerful capability, the HIPrelay helps organizations overcome costly and complex networking barriers like VLANs, NAT/PAT, Layer 3 VPN, Firewall, and Routing rules as well as impassable borders like Carrier Grade NAT (CGNAT). The HIPrelay is a product add-on available on HIPswitch 400 hardware, 300 virtuals, and cloud platforms.
