Exium has chosen Enea to provide the network traffic intelligence foundation for Exium’s pioneering zero-trust secure access service edge (SASE) platform, the intelligent cybersecurity mesh. The solution enables organisations to get up and running in minutes with a secure access service that can connect any user to any app anywhere with carrier grade security. Enea’s Deep Packet Inspection (DPI)-based technology delivers detailed insights into network traffic to support essential networking and security functions and ensure the highest possible levels of performance.
Representing the perfect union between 5G networking and enterprise cyber security, the Exium solution capitalises on the fact that 5G is more than just the ‘next G’; it is an ideal blueprint for secure, cloud-native, transport-agnostic zero-trust connectivity between users, devices, locations and applications.
Exium took this blueprint one-step further by integrating cloud-based security service edge (SSE) essentials, including zero trust network access (ZTNA), secure web gateway (SWG), cloud access security broker (CASB) and extended threat detection and response (XDR).
The result is a true 5G SASE solution that can operate securely over multi-mode networks (4G, 5G, Wi-Fi, fibre/cable, and satellites) from diverse providers, including mobile operators and cloud hyperscalers. But, as all SASE architects know, a SASE solution is only as good as its data foundation. This is why SASE’s largest vendors and the most innovative start-ups, like Exium, trust Enea’s Qosmos technology to provide encrypted traffic classification, deep packet inspection and unique traffic insights to support SASE’s wide range of networking and security functions.
Commenting on the development, Farooq Khan, Founder and CEO, Exium, said, “Enea met our three key technology partner requirements. One, they’re the foremost experts in their field; two, their technology outperforms competitors in functionality and performance; and three, they’re as fanatically devoted to customer support as we are. On the technology side,” he continues, “the decisive factors were the accuracy and scope of their first packet and encrypted traffic classification, their coverage of SaaS apps, and the unprecedented DPI performance we were able to achieve with Qosmos ixEngine integrated into our Vector Packet Processing (VPP) architecture.”
Meanwhile, Jean-Pierre Coury, vice president, Enea Traffic Intelligence, said, “We couldn’t be more pleased to join Exium on this exciting 5G journey. We believe their innovative use of 5G architecture and standards will greatly ease the current day-to-day enterprise networking challenges associated with cloud migration, remote work and the Internet of Things, while also accelerating deployments of 5G to support new user experiences and mission-critical applications, and we are proud to play a role in facilitating this important transformation.”
