Seamlessly and securely enable users across your network.
The modern enterprise network, with its enhanced scale and reach, presents a number of new challenges. These challenges include the need to support service provider-like multi-tenancy, with instances of one or more applications running in a shared environment; the rise of Internet of Things (IoT) and the resulting need to support an ever-increasing number of devices that are Internet-enabled; a wider cybersecurity attack surface that must be protected; and the need to enable greater user mobility.
Our Service Offerings Include:
- Campus networks – VAE leverages our commercially available IT Programmable Integration Engine (ITPIE) software to perform a deep, thorough, and concise analysis of existing networks and generate a highly accurate network device inventory. We then use physical and ITPIE survey information to design, build, and support modernized, integrated campus networks. Because these networks are standards-based (including IPv6) and secure, they enable the use of devices and software from many vendors, and they position customers to take advantage of Enterprise IT as a Service (EITaaS).
- Core routing – VAE engineers configure, install, and secure core routers and switches, and design networks that use Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) to support a variety of users with the need to transmit data at different classification levels.
- Mobility – VAE understands that today’s networks aren’t tied to physical connections. All of our efforts support unified access, to combine and manage wired and wireless networks in a consistent and seamless manner.
- Zero Trust – VAE defines Scalable Group Tags (SGTs) that simplify the application of firewall Access Control Lists (ACL) to block unauthorized network traffic, quarantines non-compliant systems, establishes IDentity and Access Management (IdAM)-controlled environments to prevent lateral movement or privilege escalation in the environment, and supports Comply-to-Connect (C2C), to provide network access control through dynamic policies for devices and users.
- Network-as-a-Sensor – VAE uses metrics and analytics at the port level to detect and mitigate threats and service interruptions.
- Unified Fabric – VAE overlays various network technologies on a single network to better converge compute, transport, and storage across the environment.
- Software-Defined (SD) Networking – VAE uses intent-based networks with policy and analytics that drive automated provisioning, configuration, and segmentation of Local Area Networks (SD-LAN), Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN), and Data Centers (SD-DC). We also support cloud-managed networking, in which wired, wireless, and SD network infrastructure are managed as a cloud-based service.
- Network Function Virtualization – VAE supports converging software-based network appliances onto a single platform to reduce footprint, and simplify deployment and management.
- Mapping, Modeling, and Simulation – VAE combines knowledge of the known and unknown aspects of a network to enable asset management, network operations, and security operations.
