MegaPath Firewall & UTM is delivered through our partnership with Cisco, a global leader and innovator in Private Networking and Security.
MegaPath manages your entire IPsec VPN WAN remotely. For your security, our cloud-based management platform provides state-of-the-art security features like dual-factor authentication and password enforcement policies and comes with SSAE 16 and PCI compliance. For added security, the control plane separates network management data from user data. Management data (e.g., configuration, statistics, monitoring, etc.) flows from security appliances to our cloud over a secure Internet connection. User data (web browsing, internal applications, etc.) does not flow through the cloud, instead flowing directly to its destination across the WAN.
