If enterprises want to address security weaknesses beyond the boundaries of branch networks, SD-Branch can be extended to vendors of the Aruba 360 Security Exchange Technology Partner Program to provide additional integration protection. The program's membership continues to increase. For example, cloud security service provider Zscaler, as well as next-generation firewall vendors Check Point and Palo Alto Networks, are the closest companies to join and propose a new cooperation law. The cloud firewall of the cloud service, as well as advanced threat protection, ensures that sensitive traffic transmitted by the enterprise over the Internet is protected.
At the network management level, Aruba Branch Gateway is content-aware, capable of performing fine-grained control over regional and wide-area network access based on differences in user roles, providing more powerful network service quality. Management capabilities (QoS), taking into account the simple operational needs of front-end users and back-end IT operators.
It is worth mentioning that the Aruba Branch Gateway also provides policy-based routing and dynamic path selection. The system can use the data and content perception level in the relevant context, and consider factors such as user, device, group affiliation, etc., in order to provide dynamic guidance mechanism for traffic transmission across the WAN.
Among such functions, in the retail environment, the priority of POS system and video traffic transmission can be increased, followed by the visitor's network access, and in the hotel industry environment, it can be set to priority transmission. Voice traffic for customer service.
Aruba SD-Branch has Dynamic Path Steering (DPS), which enables dynamic and immediate selection of upstream (Upstream) paths for networked devices located in the branch office network environment.
Enterprises can establish corresponding WAN policies for transmission performance according to different types of traffic. Rules, service level agreements, probes, and preferred WANs are required to allow networked devices to select the optimal uplink path.
Behind this mechanism, the gateway device will continue to pay attention to delay, packet loss, and jitter of network throughput through active and passive monitoring.
