Tempered Networks Inc., the pioneer of Identity-Defined Networking (IDN), announces its new Global IP Namespace capability that gives enterprise IT the ability to make instant changes to their network infrastructure to support key business initiatives.
An industry first, Global IP Namespace enables IT staff to rapidly move endpoints and systems across hybrid networks—with no IP address modifications. This powerful capability is enabled by Tempered Networks IDN fabric-based platform, announced in Spring 2016, which ensures that all whitelisted endpoints and machines will be able to securely connect trusted endpoints or systems, regardless of network location or what IP address the resource is using.
“Enterprises struggle with conflicting requirements, namely, simultaneously ensuring users can access network resources where ever they are, ensuring the connectivity is secure, and doing it in a manageable fashion,” said Mike Fratto, research director, Current Analysis. “Typical solutions are made up of numerous products that have to be technically and operationally integrated. Global IP Namespace address those issues and more in a manner that is familiar to IT and is transparent to the end user.”
• Global IP Namespace is based upon Tempered Networks core Host Identify Protocol (HIP) services technology that provides unique device-based CryptoIDs, network cloaking, and a fully encrypted fabric that orchestrates trust between any resource across any network type (wired, wi-fi, cellular, radio, SatCom, and serial-based networks), putting IT in control.
• HIP services can effectively function as a router and a bridge, without requiring any administrative changes to the underlying network while reducing the complexity of having to maintain VPNs, complex firewall rule sets, VLAN segmentation, and ACLs in an attempt to accomplish secure segmentation.
• With Tempered Networks Conductor, a scalable orchestration engine, IT can instantly move endpoints, machines and networks effortlessly across their hybrid datacenter with no IP configuration changes and revoke trust instantly.
• Tempered Networks IDN fabric allows customers to connect in a variety of ways, including cloud, hardware, virtual appliances, client-side applications, and embedded software, providing unmatched flexibility.
“With Global IP Namespace, any IP scheme an organization wants to use is a non-issue,” said Marc Kaplan, VP of Security Architecture at Tempered Networks. “For example, I can take a physical SQL server and move it to a virtual SQL server, and then move it to AWS, without ever having to change its IP address, and its behavior stays the same. It’s a uniquely powerful capability that’s part of our IDN fabric. For the first time in the industry the network is as adaptable as software. The speed at which networking teams can now move will be as fast if not faster than DevOps accelerating time-to-market and reduced OpEx.”
Global IP Namespace is available today and ships with Tempered Networks latest IDN solution.
