Ipanema’s WAN Security function simplifies hybrid WAN deployments. Ipanema appliances protect your branch Internet connections from threats, without using additional security devices in the branch. With just a few clicks, you can enable your branch through your Ipanema appliance to access public and private datacenters. VPNs on IPsec or Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE) can be terminated at the Ipanema appliance to encrypt traffic, which traverses the Internet.
The Ipanema appliance can be easily configured to apply local “allows/denies” to the web traffic. Additionally, these flows can be directed either through an access tunnel and secured by an external Secure Web Gateway (e.g. Zscaler before and after traversing the Internet backbone) or through a cloud hub exchange to accelerate SaaS applications.
