Multicloud Defense Architecture
Multicloud Defense uses a common principle in public clouds and software defined networking (SDN) which decouples the control and data plane, translating to two (2) solution components - the Multicloud Defense Controller and the Multicloud Defense Gateway.
Multicloud Defense Controller - a highly reliable and scalable centralized Controller that provides the management and control plane. This runs as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and is fully managed and maintained by Multicloud Defense. Customers access a web portal to utilize the Multicloud Defense Controller, or they may choose to use the Multicloud Defense provider for Terraform to instantiate security into the DevOps/DevSecOps processes.
Multicloud Defense Gateway - an auto-scaling fleet of Multicloud Defense software deployed as Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) into the customers public cloud account/s by the Multicloud Defense Controller. This provides advanced, inline security protections to defend against external attacks, prevent egress data exfiltration and prevent the lateral movement of attacks. Multicloud Defense Gateways include functionality for TLS decryption, Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IDS/IPS), Web Application Firewall (WAF), AntiVirus filtering, Data Loss Prevention (DLP) and FQDN/URL Filtering capabilities.
