Mumbai: Firewall solutions provider GajShield Infotech has strengthened the security of its recently introduced firewall applications. GajShield firewall has added SD-WAN and SLA features to offer users an easy single-click deployment and configuration.
The newly added features will help enterprises with better connectivity, simplicity, the efficiency of data flow, resilience and scalability.
SD-WAN is considered the most secure, easiest to use, and simplest solution in the industry. Configuration of this feature will facilitate smooth coordination between the clients with their servers.
SD-WAN’s cloud-delivered overlay WAN architecture connects branches to a data centre and multi-cloud environments via a solitary fabric. SD-WAN facilitates in safeguarding a predictable user experience for applications. It augments Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) connections and provides cohesive security solutions either on-premises or in the cloud.
Its analytics competencies enable in delivering the visibility and insights essential to isolate and resolve issues promptly and deliver intelligent data analysis to organisations.
Some of the advantages SD-WAN offers include better connectivity even during switching between various ISPs during failover and best-in-class modern cryptography primitives providing better security for communication between branches.
SLA policy encompasses multiple ISPs or a Zone (group of ISPs) and a set of parameters that will be used to evaluate ISPs. Threshold parameters like latency, jitter, packet loss can be used either individually or in conjunction with each other for fine-tuning.
The 4 modes in SLA Policy include Best Performance which is selected by default in which it finalizes one ISP on the selected parameter from Latency, Jitter or Packet Loss.
The second mode is the Overall formula in which you can customize the percentage of parameters. Based on the same, the SLA Policy will select the best ISP.
The third mode is connection-based which selects the best ISP on the basis of connection as per priority given in SLA Policy. While the fourth mode is Cost-Based, which means, it lends the best ISP as its name suggests on the basis of cost which can be more to less or less to more as per user choice.
“The addition of new features to our firewall will aid in adding value-add to our existing cutting-edge solutions. SD-WAN is an extremely simple yet quick and up-to-date feature that makes use of state-of-the-art cryptography,” said Sonit Jain, CEO – GajShield Infotech.
“It is faster, simpler, leaner, and more useful than IPsec and intends to be considerably more performant. SLA policy on the other hand helps select the best ISP on the basis of parameters configured rather than just connection when compared to traditional ISP Failover,” added Jain.
The enterprise firewall market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.69% over the forecast period (2021 – 2026), as per the Mordor Intelligence report.
With the two added features, GajShield firewall can strengthen its market position. “By adding these new features, we look forward to a strong penetration in the end-customer space and an amplified market reach,” commented Jain.
