Talari Networks, the trusted software-defined WAN leader, today announced the availability of its Adaptive Private Networking (APN) 5.2 and Aware 2.2 management software which deliver an easy and flexible way for enterprises to deploy a Talari branch simplification solution.
APN 5.2 represents an important step in broadening the services that Talari’s appliances support by extending the existing SD-WAN, routing and VPN capabilities, to now include a Stateful Firewall, Network Address Translation (NAT), DHCP server, enhanced DHCP relay functions, and adaptive bandwidth discovery. This innovation enables customers to consolidate popular branch services, which typically reside on multiple devices, onto a single Talari appliance that supports centralised provisioning, management and reporting of all services. The benefit of this consolidation is a reduction of acquisition and ongoing management cost of branch services by enabling IT organisations to reduce device sprawl and the onsite technical expertise required to support a branch network infrastructure.
Talari Aware, the centralised management system for a Talari SD-WAN and branch simplification solution, has been updated with release 2.2 to support all of the new capabilities being delivered in APN 5.2.
The APN 5.2 sone-based firewall, which is a key enabler of the branch simplification solution, supports policy-based filtering between services and security sones as well as static and dynamic NAT. A unique feature of the Talari firewall integrated SD-WAN solution is the concept of global security sones shared between Talari enabled branches. The global definitions of security sones and filter policies are now network aware which can be extended across the WAN, to the Internet, and even within the site. The result is macro and micro level security segmentation configuration and maintenance are now administratively simple.
APN 5.2 is available on all shipping Talari appliances which offer customers a turnkey physical option that is quick and easy to deploy or virtual appliances that run on Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware ESX and allows organisations to utilise their choice of Intel x86-based platforms to support their branch consolidation efforts.
