The NetFoundry zero trust networking SDKs can now be used by Oracle Cloud hosted ISV and SaaS providers to embed zero trust networking into their apps. Between the providers’ Oracle Cloud regions and their customer sites, this delivers agentless, zero trust, private networking. Customers of Oracle Cloud ISV and SaaS providers would enjoy built-in secure networking from any Internet connection, eliminating the need for add-on infrastructure like VPNs, firewalls, and MPLS.
The NetFoundry Networking Zero Trust Platform, available on Oracle Cloud Marketplace, would allow zero trust connections to be set up in minutes.
“The cloud represents a huge opportunity for our partner community,” said David Hicks, vice-president, Worldwide ISV Cloud Business Development, Oracle. “NetFoundry’s commitment to innovation with the Oracle Cloud and quality execution will help our mutual customers receive cloud-enabled networking solutions, ready to meet their critical business needs.”
Businesses can use Oracle services like Oracle Autonomous Database and Private Kubernetes API networking without having to deploy infrastructure, and with better security and performance on the Internet. Pilots can be set up in minutes, and production deployments can be managed as code, thanks to NetFoundry’s APIs, which are used by enterprises’ DevOps and cloud orchestration tools to automate secure networking as part of their overall management.
The NetFoundry Secure Networking Platform includes both Zero Trust as a Service (ZTaaS) and SDN as a Service (SDNaaS), allowing app developers, ISVs, SaaS providers, enterprise IT, DevOps, and NetOps to build secured networking into their applications without having to build all of the underlying functions. ZTaaS offers certificate-based identity, bootstrapped enrollment, bi-directional authentication, least privileged access, microsegmentation, and encryption software to developers. In NetFoundry’s cloud native network, the underlying infrastructure is controlled by NetFoundry.
Clients can use SDNaaS to connect to the NetFoundry Fabric, a global SDN that offers improved performance and zero-trust application delivery. The core Ziti zero trust networking software was open sourced by NetFoundry to give maximum flexibility, investment protection, and open-source community innovation and support.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and NetFoundry
The partnership with Oracle is based on a close alignment of next-generation solution principles such as security-by-design, performance-by-design, superior economics, improved automation, scalability, and availability – all core Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) and NetFoundry Secure Networking Platform attributes. NetFoundry makes zero trust networking programmatic and highly agile with cloud native orchestration and infrastructure managed as-a-service, with pay-as-you-go pricing, to instantly spin up and manage zero trust, performant, edge-to-cloud, hybrid cloud and cloud-to-cloud networks, similar to how OCI offers software-defined services to deliver agility and scalability for compute, storage, and application services.
Oracle Cloud Marketplace is a one-stop shop for Oracle clients looking for dependable business apps with unique business solutions, including those that enhance Oracle Cloud Applications. Oracle Cloud is an enterprise cloud that offers a broad array of services, including SaaS, application development, application hosting, and business analytics, with large, non-variable performance and next-generation security. Customers may supplement and modernize their key workloads with top compute, storage, data management, security, integration, HPC, artificial intelligence (AI), and Blockchain services. Oracle Cloud runs Oracle Autonomous Database, a self-driving database.
NetFoundry’s Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) technologies were recently extended to OCI. OCI was chosen by NetFoundry because of its performance and agility. A number of additional alternatives are currently being developed. The NetFoundry and Oracle teams, for example, are collaborating to make it possible for enterprises to deploy Oracle Autonomous Database with a single click through the Oracle Cloud Marketplace.
