Untangle announced the introduction of its Network Security Framework, a new approach to security orchestration across the enterprise.

The Untangle Network Security Framework provides IT teams with the ability to ensure protection, monitoring and control for all devices, applications, and events, enforcing a consistent security posture across the entire digital attack surface––putting IT back in control of dispersed networks, hybrid cloud environments, and IoT and mobile devices.

The framework includes NG Firewall and Command Center products, along with two new products introduced: Micro Firewall and SD-WAN Router. Micro Firewall and SD-WAN Router extend Untangle’s network security product family to the network edge and IoT devices, securing and optimizing a range of different networking scenarios to meet the needs of connected organizations.

Untangle Micro Firewall is a purpose-built, lightweight, containerized firewall with proprietary, patent-pending Predictive Routing, an AI-based routing service that predetermines network traffic routing paths based on historical patterns and machine learning, enabling fast routing of traffic as soon as criteria are recognized, bringing Layer 7 application-level packet steering to Layer 3 to intelligently process all traffic, regardless of whether or not it is encrypted. Predictive Routing can detect malicious activity and enforce network policies, dropping traffic that can cause harm, or routing traffic to a remote or cloud-based security service for further processing.

Designed as a lightweight solution purpose-built for small network appliances and IoT devices, Untangle Micro Firewall runs in a Linux container, independent of the software stack. It is optimized for cloud management via Untangle Command Center or API.

Untangle’s SD-WAN Router is a lightweight, network-edge solution that provides both advanced routing capabilities to deliver network performance optimization, plus a built-in, intelligent firewall to ensure the network is always secure.
