HIGH PERFORMANCE APPLICATION AWARENESS FOR SASE

Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) solutions deliver integrated networking and security as an agile cloud service, with traffic from remote (or edge) locations being routed through local access points (Points of Presence, or PoPs) to connect users to the data and computing resources they need without having to backhaul traffic through a faraway data center.

QOSMOS DPI ENGINE

Qosmos ixEngine® is an embedded traffic intelligence engine (SDK) that recognizes and classifies over 3500 protocols. It uses advanced analytics to non-intrusively extract real-time information about applications, services, content, users, devices, transactions and security from traffic flows. Developed specifically for integration into third-party applications, Qosmos ixEngine provides the accurate, granular application awareness that is critical to every core SASE networking and security function, from network access to traffic steering to firewalling. And it can be flexibly deployed at the Edge, in the Data Center, or in the Cloud.

4 of the Top 5 SASE Vendors Embed Qosmos ixEngine!

COMMERCIAL-GRADE TRAFFIC INTELLIGENCE

Vendors may use different architectures for their SASE solutions, but they all need universal, real-time application awareness. This is a must-have for every networking and security function within SASE, such as SD-WAN, NGFW (Next Generation Firewall), CASB (Cloud Access Security Broker), SWG (Secure Web Gateway), DLP (Data Loss Prevention) and TDR (Threat Detection and Response). For real-time application awareness in SASE, you need a commercial-grade traffic intelligence engine, such as the Qosmos ixEngine.
