In the rapidly evolving digital infrastructure landscape, companies are continually searching for solutions that not only provide robust security, but also offer the flexibility required to adapt to dynamic business needs. Banyan Security’s innovative Flexible Edge was created to be able to simply answer “Yes” when asked if our solution fits into an organization’s deployment scenario. This transformative technology not only addresses the limitations seen in other vendors’ offerings but also introduces a new era of connectivity that seamlessly combines flexibility and security.

Limitations of Other Vendors

Many vendors in the market provide connectivity solutions, but a common theme among them is a lack of flexibility. These vendors typically offer a singular means of connecting to their infrastructure and services, limiting the adaptability of organizations. Furthermore, the reliance on a single traffic flow can lead to potential security concerns, as traffic may need to be decrypted at certain points.

Another drawback with some vendors is the restriction to specific points of presence (PoPs) within designated cloud service providers (CSPs). This limitation can hinder organizations that require a more diverse and distributed network. Additionally, some vendors may confine their PoPs to a limited number of data centers, restricting the geographical reach of their services.

Flexible Edge: A Paradigm Shift

Banyan stands out by introducing the concept of Flexible Edge, which goes beyond the constraints imposed by other vendors. This innovation encompasses both Global Edge and Private Edge, providing unparalleled flexibility in connectivity options.

This agility in deployment ensures that organizations can establish connections rapidly, responding to the need for swift and efficient deployments. The flexible nature of Global Edge also allows for the deployment of Access Tiers and Connectors anywhere, empowering organizations with a truly global reach.

Private Edge

On the other hand, Private Edge emphasizes security, offering a more robust and controlled environment for deployments.

With Private Edge, organizations have the ability to maintain full control of the data plane, enhancing privacy and ensuring that traffic is not unnecessarily inspected in the vendor’s cloud. This added layer of security is crucial for organizations dealing with sensitive data or operating in regulated industries.

Enhancing Security Through Flexibility

Banyan’s Flexible Edge not only provides unprecedented flexibility but also enhances security in the process. By offering the option to choose between Global Edge for faster deployments and Private Edge for more secure deployments, Banyan empowers organizations to strike the right balance between speed and security.

The ability to deploy both Global Edge and Private Edge simultaneously sets Banyan apart from other vendors. This unique feature enables organizations to achieve the fastest productivity while seamlessly transitioning into the most secure deployment. In an era where the cybersecurity landscape is constantly evolving, having the ability to adapt without compromising on security is a significant advantage.

Simplicity Redefined with Flexible Edge

In addition to its groundbreaking capabilities, one of the most compelling aspects of Banyan’s solution is its user-friendly interface (try a self-driven demo here). The ease with which organizations can implement and manage Flexible Edge makes it a viable choice for businesses of all sizes. Banyan has successfully combined advanced technology with simplicity, ensuring that even non-technical users can harness the power of Flexible Edge without extensive training.

Moreover, unlike some vendors, Banyan doesn’t charge based on the type of edge used, connectors, gateways, or throughput. This means deploying a leading solution while significantly saving an organization time and money.

Flexible Edge is not just a connectivity solution; it’s a paradigm shift in how organizations approach secure and flexible connectivity. By addressing the limitations seen in other vendors’ offerings and introducing a unique blend of flexibility and security, Banyan has positioned itself as a leader in the industry. As businesses continue to navigate the complex landscape of digital transformation, having a solution that provides both speed and security is not just an advantage – it’s a necessity. Banyan’s Flexible Edge meets this demand head-on, setting a new standard for what organizations can achieve in the realm of secure connectivity.
