Protect Users on the Internet with Secure Access


Part four of a nine-part series of use cases for SteelConnect

Any user who uses the Internet can introduce or simply be exposed to security threats and cause a security breach. Setting up security for users in router-based environments involves setting up hundreds of security rules for every user and site—by using command line interface (CLI).

The result: pages of complex rules to audit. Rule change is a nightmare. It would be much easier if you only had to create or audit five or six rules globally. Now you can.


SteelConnect delivers safe Internet access easily—with its menu-driven, simplified design and workflow, centralized management and global intent-based policy that can be easily changed when needed, automation and real-time visibility and reporting. You simply do not have to think about physical boxes or coding.  

Instead, you use design first and then automate. You set up a ‘shadow appliance’—a placeholder for a physical device—and then, based on policy, you automatically provision the security for users, groups, organizations, zones and sites.
