As cyber threats evolve and multiply, it becomes increasingly more complicated for IT staff to protect their networks. Today’s most significant concerns are insider threats and attacks that target the edges of the network, where a conventional firewall is ineffective. The Allied Telesis Self-Defending Network is an automated threat response solution that instantly shuts down attacks before they cause damage. Compatible with industry-leading firewalls and requiring no agent software on endpoint devices, it is easy to install and starts protecting business networks immediately.   

“We are delighted that our Self-Defending Network is recognized as an industry-leading insider threat solution by Info Security Products Guide,” said Graham Walker, VP Marketing. “Behind this distinguished success is our relentless drive to stay customer-focused. We believe the recognition from Info Security Products Guide and the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards further validates our commitment to our customers and their security needs.”

The Allied Telesis Self-Defending Network works with a customer’s existing firewall to automate responses to cyberattacks. Using OpenFlow or the Allied Telesis Autonomous Management Framework, it controls the network to restrict access to suspect devices without the need for manual intervention. Defensive actions are immediate, so the business can continue unaffected without requiring additional IT resources.
