Branch Network Solutions

Nodegrid for
Branch Networks

Remote Network Infrastructure Management

ZPE Systems brings their Out-of-Band (OOB) expertise from the data center and extends it out to the Remote Office / Branch Office (ROBO) by providing users with the ability to establish a 24×7 remote virtual presence throughout the network. In addition, we have incorporated SASE and SD-Branch needs with the ability to run Guest OS’s, NFV’s and applications. Nodegrid is the perfect platform for the branch and provides right fit solutions with the same enterprise grade security features and protocols customers have depended on from our Nodegrid Solutions.

ZPE Systems takes a Continuous Adaptive Risk and Trust Assessment (CARTA) approach to network security to support the digital transformation of business.

What do you need your solution to do?
Out-of-Band Connectivity

Out-of-Band Connectivity

Nodegrid goes beyond your data center with secure out-of-band connectivity. Our appliances support serial and console ports, with dual-cellular failover that provides reliable backup. Use Nodegrid at your branch locations for safe, remote control of your network, so you can deploy, scale, and manage with ease.

Solution Benefits:

  • Deploy simply & safely — With ZPE Cloud, the initial deployment and ongoing management of your network is easy, and you no longer need to ship pre-configured devices to your branch locations.
  • Cut response times & maintenance costs — If issues arise, put your best people on the job right away. Remote access allows you to remedy issues without having to roll a truck, so you cut response times and operating expenses.
  • Increase uptime — Even during an outage, you can keep things “business as usual” thanks to cellular failover connectivity that supports all major carriers.

Cloud-Based Agility

With ZPE Cloud™, you no longer need to get bogged down by provisioning or on-site support. Configure, deploy, & manage all your appliances from our secure cloud platform.

Vendor Neutral

Add management capabilities to all your devices. Nodegrid eliminates the need to learn many vendor-specific tools, and instead gives you normalized commands on one console.

More Uptime

Thanks to dual cellular failover that supports all major carriers, you get strong backup when your network goes down. Get built-in 4G/LTE connectivity for more reliability & uptime.

Out-of-Band + SASE

Out-of-Band + SASE
Deliver secure access anywhere thanks to Nodegrid’s Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) capabilities. SASE combines networking and security for flexible, cloud-based access that goes where your users go. Because Nodegrid supports virtualized applications and built-in automation, you can deploy additional security software and scale effortlessly to meet your business’ needs.

Solution Benefits:

  • Squeeze more functionality out of every device — Add new applications on top of Nodegrid to get even more out of your solution.
  • Deploy faster & scale effortlessly — Using Guest OS, you can set your standards to help you quickly deploy branch locations and easily scale in compliance.
  • Reduce your footprint & increase reliability — Use Guest OS to replace devices at your branches, and gain consistent cellular failover for all your applications.

Efficient Integration

Nodegrid combines networking & security into one agile platform. You no longer lose time & money to inefficient service chaining, loosely-coupled point products, or vendor-specific issues.

Total Flexibility

Patented x86 64-bit architecture offers Guest OS access and support for virtualized applications. Deploy firewalls, WAN accelerators, & more directly on Nodegrid devices.

Automated & Modular

Take advantage of built-in automation that streamlines deployment & scaling. And because Nodegrid is modular, you can tailor your SASE capabilities to your business’ needs.
