Secucloud Security Platform ECS2

THE INNOVATIVE “MADE IN GERMANY” IT SECURITY SOLUTION

The Elastic Cloud Security System (ECS2) is unique on the market.

By combining the range of security systems in the ECS2 architecture with a global security cloud infrastructure, providers receive a powerful, scalable solution, which ensures comprehensive security in real time for every device at every location. The ECS2 was developed systematically from the ground up as a scalable cloud architecture to meet the challenges presented by the continuously strong growth of data volume and the rising number of mobile and IoT devices.

Benefits:

  • In cloud environments, the Secucloud system scales dynamically and without any limits and is offered as a Distributed Elastic Computing System.
  • Instances are generated and terminated automatically, depending on performance requirements.
  • The system can be offered either as a public cloud solution in hosted environments or as a private cloud solution for operation on one’s own server.
  • The solution supports a multitude of different virtualization platforms (such as VMware, Xen, KVM and AWS EC2).
  • Latency time is normally less than 10 milliseconds.
  • The security system is a purely German product – guaranteed without any built-in backdoors!

THE THREE COMPONENTS OF THE ECS²

Secucloud ClOC

The Cloud Operations Controller (CLOC) is the central monitoring and controlling unit of the ECS2. It regulates the scaling of the system in the cloud in real time, and monitors the status of all Secucloud Access Nodes (SAN). Should a SAN fail or become unavailable, the failover option immediately diverts traffic to the nearest SAN or starts new instances, as required.

Secucloud Access Nodes

Secucloud Access Nodes are the globally distributed entry points to the ECS2. Usually they are operated in the provider’s private cloud – i.e. on-premises. As needed, SANs can also be operated in publicly hosted environments (public clouds). SANs receive the directly routed traffic and the data traffic of the devices connected to them and act as the actual filter instances. Multiple filter instances are used in the ECS2 and they produce a global analysis of the threat situation in real time.

Secucloud Management System

Secucloud management systems are administration and configuration systems for end users, all Secucloud partners, and Secucloud itself. Using clearly organized interfaces, the configuration settings can be easily changed. New settings are automatically sent via CLOCs to all the connected SANS, and applied there. For partners the REST API of the management system provides interfaces to all common monitoring and management applications.

PUBLIC AND PRIVATE CLOUD

The system is offered either as a public cloud or as a private cloud solution for operation on one’s own server. Moreover, virtual platform environments from VMware, Xen, KVM and AWS EC2 are also supported.

COST BENEFITS

Since instances are automatically scaled, cloud resources can be used extremely effectively, which in turn translates into considerable cost benefits. Compared to classic enterprise security solutions, the Secucloud system costs up to ten times less to operate.

MAXIMUM THROUGHPUT – MINIMUM LATENCY

With the Distributed Elastic Cloud Computing approach, resources with throughput rates of more than one terabit per second can be provided and very quickly adapted again to the changing performance requirements. At the same time latency is normally less than 10 milliseconds.

NEW TARGET GROUPS

With the considerable cost benefits and easy operation, completely new target group markets can be opened up that had never before had access to such powerful enterprise level security functionality, such as private households, mobile customers or SMEs.
