Level up existing network switches.

Minimize disruption with a network that gives you the confidence to stop and respond to attacks. Micro-segmentation and Zero Trust can give existing switches security and visibility to enhance your investments.

There are millions of deployed network switches that lack security, visibility, and other advanced features. Throwing them away is too expensive. At the same time, the interior of networks can’t be left unprotected and a switch that ignores cyber security is a potential liability. When security and connectivity are left coupled together in a rigid network architecture, the ability to enforce security is limited. The average data breach attack lurks in a network for 287 days with little stopping it from spreading*. Responding to attacks or even making a simple change becomes an exercise in orienting yourself when it is too late and often results in significant delays and disruption to an organization.

Focus on connectivity, then security.

Your existing switches provide connectivity and represent a large investment. CryptoniteNXT lets you kick their clunky interfaces and controls to the curb by layering micro-segmentation and easy to manage switch security on top of your existing network infrastructure. Convert your dusty old switches into the world of visibility, security, and easy management with a few configuration changes. Your switches cyber security abilities get an upgrade and keep carrying traffic like they were designed and everyone stays secure. That’s a win-win.

CryptoniteNXT enables you to save money and time by simply enhancing, rather than replacing, network switches. Focus on connectivity first and then add security to the lowest levels of your network without a rip and replace deployment.
Your organization can continue to operate during an attack with always-on micro-segmentation, mitigation, and simple quarantine options. IBM recommends organizations adopt a zero trust security model*. CryptoniteNXT provides mitigation BEFORE an attack is known. Easy onboarding and secure role-based access control (RBAC) keeps your subnets and VLANs safe. Join the 57% of organizations that have already deployed or are planning to deploy zero trust in the next year*. Get the benefit of always-on protection that uniquely disrupts scanning and discovery to strengthen your security posture.

It’s all about visibility.

If you can’t see, you can’t act. Many networks don’t know what is connected or what they are doing. In particular, lateral or “east-west” traffic underneath your firewall can go unmonitored. CryptoniteNXT changes that by working with your switches to create an asset inventory, make traffic visible, and then guide you in improving micro-segmentation and giving switches security. What a device is, who is hogging the network, and where things are connected – that’s all just as important as what the current security policies are.

Role-based Access Control.

Making sense of IPs, numbers, and switch ports is tiring. Switch cyber security can be challenging. With CryptoniteNXT all policy is defined around what a device is. Automatically import groups via integrations or LDAP. Create groups based on suggestions and search results. Once key groups are created, micro-segmentation can be adjusted by simply adding a new device or user to that group and you’re done. It doesn’t matter where the device is, policy follows automatically.

What people are saying about CryptoniteNXT

Control the diagonal.

Most other solutions lack granularity at the lowest levels. A significant portion of traffic never hits your firewall or router and relies on your networks switches’ cyber security. CryptoniteNXT enables arbitrary micro-segmentation policy for traffic within the same subnet. Allow a key use case between two adjacent devices but block the rest. Slice and dice subnets and VLANs to isolate devices however your organizations’ needs demand without actually changing your network’s underlying connectivity.

Simplify Network Access Control.

CryptoniteNXT provides a unified way to view inventory and perform network access control. This combined approach allows a variety of deployment options including simple “it just works” onboarding, integration to WPA2 for easily customized wireless segmentation, or full 802.1X integration depending on your needs. Provide flexible micro-segmentation including default internet-only access for devices and easily adjust the policy of each endpoint with full visibility.
