Secure Networking Made Simple

IDN gives you a unified networking and security architecture that delivers secure connectivity for any device, across any transport, in any location. It’s a proven alternative to traditional IT solutions and has been in production for over 12 years at a Fortune 100 company until recently commercialized for the broader market.

The IDN fabric is non-disruptive, can be deployed on-top of any IP network, and enables rapid provisioning and revocation of networking and security services that are managed in a highly dynamic and scalable way. Unlike traditional IP networking and SDN approaches, the IDN fabric requires few, if any, changes to the underlying network or security infrastructure, reducing the need for complex firewall rules, ACLs, VLANs, VPN policies and key management.

The outcome is a completely unique approach to networking that enables organizations to achieve superior security, agility and economics.

» IDN Orchestration: The Conductor

    Simple Point-and-Click Policy Based Orchestration

    The Conductor is the orchestration engine that delivers centralized management of the IDN fabric and drives networking and security policies for HIP Services. As the intelligence behind an IDN deployment, the Conductor is designed to be extremely easy to use, even for staff without advanced technical training. You can now create hub-and-spoke or highly distributed mesh networks, without the traditional network challenges.
