Zingbox, Allied Telesis join forces to deliver secure SDN offering that reinforces network security infrastructures

Zingbox announced on Wednesday a collaboration with Softbank C&S and Allied Telesis, provider of hardware and software products that allow customers to build secure, feature-rich and scalable data exchange solutions. Through this partnership, Zingbox along with Allied Telesis and Softbank C&S are bringing a joint solution to market which will allow enterprises to have confidence in the security of their network infrastructures.

The new joint solution leverages technology from Allied Telesis’ Secure Enterprise SDN (SES) solution, which can isolate parts of a network and quarantine devices until it can be remediated, and Zingbox’s IoT Guardian solution, which analyzes network traffic in and out of IoT devices, using machine learning to create a baseline of normal behavior and enabling the identification of anomalous activities.

The joint solution will be able to detect any device that is at risk of a cyberattack, continuously monitor its behavior, and shut off and isolate the communication of infected device(s) with an edge switch to prevent the spread of infection to other devices in a network.

“At Softbank C&S, we are eager to share this joint solution between Allied Telesis and Zingbox with our customers,” said Shoichi Takase, Board Director (ICT / Enterprise Business / Advanced Technology) at Softbank C&S.  “The use of IoT is expanding in various fields such as manufacturing, healthcare, enterprises, etc., and security appropriate for IoT is an indispensable factor. Through this collaboration, I am convinced that a more secure and convenient IoT environment will be realized.”

“Zingbox is committed to bringing the best IoT security technology to market and this partnership with Allied Telesis further evolves our vision of delivering comprehensive security for an organization’s entire infrastructure,” said Xu Zou, CEO and co-founder, Zingbox.
