Enhanced Cybersecurity for Hybrid Work Environments

With Arista CUE, commercial customers will benefit from reduced I.T. network operational complexity and cost by leveraging a unified network management platform. In addition, customers are protected through integrated edge threat management. Arista helps MSPs enforce a consistent security posture across users, devices, applications, and events. Together, these applications lower the risk of cyber threats and ransomware.

“WAN Dynamics’ network consulting expertise coupled with Arista’s Cognitive Unified Edge makes our commercial customer networks more agile, reduces operating expense, lessens the time to deployment, prevents outages, and eliminates costly configuration errors,” said Jason Gintert, Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder, Wan Dynamics.

Tailored “As A Service” for Commercial Enterprises

Commercial enterprises have highly constrained I.T. budgets and staff yet still are confronted with the same challenges larger organizations have–multiple Wi-Fi, LAN, and WAN network monitoring and management solutions that don’t interconnect, rapid problem identification, mediation, and resolution, and protection from increasing cyber threats. Arista CUE is built for commercial enterprise users as an optimal edge-as-a-service solution to this dilemma. CV-CUE provides plug-and-play management with built-in, zero-touch automation, visibility, and security. Unlike other disparate offerings, it leverages Arista’s foundational CloudVision elements. They deliver consistent customer experience, service activation, security posture, and problem resolution. The Arista CUE portfolio is comprised of new and existing capabilities, including:

CloudVision Arista CUE Management

Full cloud-managed visibility of all edge infrastructure in a single pane of glass view enables administrators to provision, troubleshoot and monitor wireless, wired, WAN, and security status, important events, reporting data, and push global configurations from a single management console based on Arista’s CloudVision foundation.

Secure Edge

Threat Management with Q-Series Next Generation Firewall: Proactively stop malware, hacking attempts, phishing schemes, and other threats before reaching users’ devices.

Integrated WAN Branch

Connectivity with Q-Series Micro Edge: Provides secure branch WAN (including LTE) connectivity, optimizes existing internet infrastructure, and prioritizes business-critical applications to maximize employee productivity.

Compact Wired Switch

Optimized in Twelve and 16-port POE flavors with a fanless and 1RU form factor for commercial customers, including branch offices, retail environments, remote or temporary workspaces, and education.

Cognitive Wi-Fi Access Points

A range of Wi-Fi 5/6 and 6E indoor and outdoor access points are suitable for commercial customers with support for wireless intrusion protection, application quality of experience, and location-based services.

“Arista CUE brings together everything we need as a solution provider to reach the broader Commercial and SMB markets for more opportunities. At STN, we think about security as the core of all our solutions, and CUE’s edge threat management component delivers layered end-to-end protection,” said Sabur Mian, CEO and Co-founder of STN Inc.
