The ‘data center’ is no longer the center of enterprise data
The traditional network architecture was built around securing, accessing, and managing enterprise data that was consolidated in the ‘data center.’ Then came the cloud. Slowly but surely, the information and workload that once resided in the data center moved.
The center of enterprise data became not only the ‘data center, but also AWS, Microsoft, Salesforce, and a host of other cloud service providers. The hub and spoke model of accessing and protecting that data became not only inefficient but ineffective.
What was needed was a new paradigm that extended the WAN beyond the data center to the multicloud environment in which the modern enterprise operates. Enter the Apcela Arcus Platform.
A multi cloud WAN platform gives your business systems a high level of flexibility. With our multi cloud architecture, you don’t have to change any of your processes to match the requirements of different cloud service providers. Instead, we provide you with the power to access more options finding the right cloud service providers that best fit your business needs.
Rethinking the Enterprise WAN
A software-defined approach
Apcela Arcus Platform allows enterprises to easily plug their existing network into a software-defined WAN that was built for today’s multicloud environment. Delivered as a service, Apcela is applying the speed and flexibility that we’ve grown to love about the cloud, to the network that connects it.
Our cloud-native application simplifies many processes like solution deployment, management, optimization, and integration. Our cloud infrastructure combined with native integration simplifies these processes, providing low overhead costs for connectivity while maintaining optimal performance across all cloud services.
Our Apcela Arcus Platform provides you with an application-based network infrastructure that you can use across multiple cloud platforms, including AWS, Google Cloud, and Salesforce. It removes inconsistencies found in traditional enterprise networks and allows you to enforce, coordinate and apply policies, so you have more control over your enterprise infrastructures.
Apcela Arcus Secure
Apcela Arcus Secure layers on top of Apcela Arcus Connect to enable an enterprise to distribute security to the edge. Leveraging AppHubs in Apcela’s global network, Apcela Arcus Secure lets network security teams lift the security stack that traditionally sat at the data center and shift it to the cloud.
Using multi cloud computing improves visibility and control across networks. It allows you to monitor traffic patterns, spot performance issues, and avoid potential security threats. We implement these features across different cloud deployments. You get centralized visibility on multiple clouds, which can help you ensure compliance with all industry standards, regulations, and data privacy laws.
Apcela Arcus Platform
Security at the Edge
We enable enterprises to make this network security transition through the use of our 60+ AppHubs deployed in carrier-neutral exchanges around the world. AppHubs act as micro data centers in the cloud, distributing and pushing the security stack closer to end-users. This provides an operationally manageable number of firewalls while not compromising performance.
You never know when a data emergency will occur. Common causes include power outages, natural disasters, and failing server storage. Multi cloud provides you with redundant backup, allowing you to protect your company’s essential data and the applications you always use. In addition, it adds a level of security and reliability to all your resources so you can stay business as usual even after something unexpected happens.
More than just Firewalls
Apcela Arcus Secure goes well beyond just next-generation firewalls (NGFW). From Intrusion Detection and Protection Systems (IDS/IPS) to Secure Web Gateways (SWG) and Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASB), Apcela Arcus Secure allows teams to easily apply and manage security policies to a WAN built for the cloud.
24/7 SOC and NOC Support
Apcela Arcus Secure is then monitored and managed through Apcela’s state-of-the-art Network and Security Operation Centers (NOC and SOC). Dedicated to supporting customer needs at any time, day or night, Apcela’s operations and engineering teams include CCIE certified engineers skilled in layer 1, 2, and 3 networking, DWDM, CWDM, SD-WAN, Network Security, and Network Orchestration Tools.
