Imera Virtual Fabric™ Architecture
Imera Virtual Fabric is a secure, auditable, and virtual infrastructure (SAVI™) with the following key technology differentiation:
- Device-to-device and device-to-cloud secure application connection.
- Decoupled from physical network topology and security infrastructure.
- Virtual application firewalls are built inside VM OS Kernel for protection.
- User role based access linked with specific server applications and security rules.
- Centralized and unified security policy and rule control.
Imera Virtual Fabric features an integrated hardware and software infrastructure that builds a virtual network over existing enterprise physical network and implements "selective open" protocols, not "selective block", such that only provisioned applications and protocols are allowed over the network. Imera Virtual Fabric virtualizes physical network and dynamically connects people, data, and infrastructure for day-to-day business operations.
Standard rack-mount, plug-and-play appliances enable instant, secure, and dynamic virtual networking connectivity. Imera appliances include gateways, access servers, and server software applications which can be deployed at a single site or multiple remote sites. Imera Gateway can be deployed in DMZ within a public IP or behind firewall to build universal virtual connectivity.
Imera Access Server can be deployed at the edge of protected region for guided end-to-end access to highly classified data and applications.
Imera Virtual Fabric implements a domain-based distributed architecture. Each domain of an Imera service can be administrated by an IT entity with security policy and user privilege controls set inside the domain. If cross-domain federation is allowed, each domain of Imera service may communicate with any number of other Imera service domains.
Imera solution features a suite of thin clients and web applications to enable enterprise communications and business processes. Imera thin clients communicate with Imera Gateway to dynamically connects people, data, and infrastructure via port 443 transport. Imera web applications allow users to access Imera powerful applications through a web browser. With Imera suite of applications, users can access to any resource (people, data, infrastructure) from anywhere to anywhere in the world.
Authentication, authorization, and auditing (AAA) of end-users take place at the enterprise level controlled and managed by IT. Roles, rules, and authorization policies are configured by each enterprise to control user-level access to resources. This ensures the highest level of security in all cross enterprises business processes and operations.
Imera Virtual Fabric enables any enterprise to connect with other enterprises within an ecosystem via domain federation without compromising existing enterprise network security infrastructures, and record all operation activities for regulatory compliance and security audits.
Imera Virtual Fabric instantly and dynamically connects people-to-people, people-to-data, and people-to-infrastructure to maximize enterprise productivity and minimize security risks, and with detailed operation logs for audits.
