LANCOM, Europe‘s largest network manufacturer, in close cooperation with Rohde & Schwarz, a global corporation headquartered in Munich and an established player in the cybersecurity market, are working together to create a unique combination of trusted network infrastructure and IT Security “Made in Germany”. This lays the cornerstone for LANCOM’s transformation from a pure network manufacturer to an integrated network and security provider.
This change will take place step by step. The path we are following accommodates all of our partners and customers, whether they use conventional network architectures or cloud-based software-defined networks.
For conventional networks, our security offerings will initially include a next-generation firewall from Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity, which ideally complements our infrastructure components.
For networks based on the LANCOM Management Cloud, we are now expanding the available network functions SD-WAN, SD-LAN and SD-WLAN to include SD-Security featuring a new Security & Compliance Dashboard, as well as a cloudbased firewall and UTM functions.
The next step is to fully integrate LANCOM network and Rohde & Schwarz security technologies and offer our partners and customers complete security solutions.
The LANCOM Management Cloud allows the holistic orchestration of all routers, switches, and access points in the network. But are you sure that all devices are configured according to compliance requirements? Is every device running the firmware with the latest patches? Are there any open ports in the network or are insecure protocols being used?
The new Security & Compliance Dashboard shows at a glance whether the devices in the network are configured according to corporate security policies. Furthermore, the dashboard keeps you up to date regarding the remaining device warranty and license terms.
Intuitive, color-coded status information makes it easier than ever to meet security and compliance requirements in cloud-managed infrastructures.
Companies are facing threats from the Internet like never before and new malware is being circulated on a daily basis. In order to keep the security architecture up-to-date at all times, the application of a central firewall and UTM from the cloud is recommended.
Together with Zscaler, the market leader for cloudbased IT security solutions, we deliver maximum data security and integrity to networks that are orchestrated from the LANCOM Management Cloud. By moving this protection to a global cloud, these software-defined services are delivered at the click of a mouse, eliminating the need to purchase separate hardware in the form of dedicated security appliances.
