NetCloud is an innovative solution combining advanced SD-WAN and zero trust security from Cradlepoint with Ericom Software’s SSE suite, which has been a multi-year Cybersecurity Excellence Award winner. Cradlepoint will be making the solution available to Cradlepoint’s 37K+ Wireless WAN users across the globe in April 2024.

Key Capabilities / Features

Cradlepoint’s NetCloud SASE serves agile enterprises with a fully unified solution which integrates cellular-centric SD-WAN and security. The increased adoption of 5G Wireless WANs is leading to an increase in attack surfaces. With site locations constantly shifting, vehicles roaming, IoT devices multiplying, and employees connecting from anywhere, 5G brings a more dynamic, distributed environment that can be complex to secure.

The scalable, cloud-delivered platform enables lean IT teams to provision zero-trust networks in as little as 6 minutes.

- Cellular Optimization: Delivers Wireless WAN optimizations that preserve bandwidth, improves performance, and delivers future proofing as 5G networks evolve from non-standalone to standalone networks. SD-WAN with intelligent bonding provides a zero loss WAN for mission-critical communications and facilitates the transition from wired to wireless WANs.

- Unparalleled Simplicity: While many SASE vendors focus on unifying management across multiple disjointed products, Cradlepoint NetCloud SASE is based on a clean, single pass architecture that delivers one platform, one policy engine, and a consistent provisioning experience across all services.

- Powerful isolation technology to block zero-day exploits: Offers a zero-trust approach to web and email security by leveraging RBI to airgap users from malicious web activity. Without impacting the browsing experience, the solution protects organizations against phishing, retains IP from potential leaks, and disarms embedded malware in attachments.

- Robust Security for Unmanaged Devices: Replaces the common practice of providing clientless browser-based access for unmanaged IoT devices using isolation-based security to airgap corporate applications from unmanaged devices – mitigating the risk of malware infection.

- Zero-Trust Built in Rather Than Bolted On: Combines security with the network creation process to construct a zero-trust foundation that is deny-all by default. The solution also obscures all IP addresses and blocks east west traffic, minimizing the attack surface and preventing lateral movement, as the network grows and scales.

How we are different

- First SASE solution that extends beyond meeting the needs of fixed locations, but can also secure dynamic environments, such as, constantly shifting locations, roaming vehicles, multiplying IoT devices and employees connecting from anywhere.
- Unique clean, single pass architecture with one true unified policy engine for all networking and security services. This allows for streamlined deployments, easier troubleshooting, and higher performance due to a single policy look up.
- Cradlepoint’s single vendor SASE solutions were recently named an Outperformer and Vendor to Watch in GigaOM’s SASE Radar Report due to its simple architecture and its unique optimizations to support today’s hybrid and 5G NSA networks. Cradlepoint was also recognized for its futureproofing as 5G SA networks start to get built out across the globe.
