Red Piranha’s Crystal Eye Moves to SASE: What to Expect?

Red Piranha has always been at the forefront of innovation when it comes to its Crystal Eye product. The unified threat management platform gives organisations a choice of securing their data environments at an affordable cost.

Now, Red Piranha unveils the next evolution in multi-tenant Crystal Eye Cloud SASE deployment. It means that the Australian-based company has moved its UTM platform into the secure access service edge market. The company has announced the launch of the new Cloud Client Dashboard earlier this month. 

But what does this mean?

Crystal Eye as a UTM security solution has always made it easier for companies and organisations to adopt a unified product platform. They do not have to select several vendors for a comprehensive strategy to secure their data. Dealing with one vendor also makes it easier to address problems since you eliminate several communication channels. When you experience a glitch, you simply have to call one number.

Benefits of SASE

Gartner introduced the SASE in 2019, and since then, it has developed a reputation for creating an architectural solution for networking technology and security being managed by a cloud service. Through the SASE, enterprises can now scale their digital businesses into a flexible and holistic service. It resolves the latency issues on security designs and the legacy network.

Here are the benefits of Red Piranha’s decision to adopt SASE:

  1. Reduces risks — One of the ways SASE will help the UTM platform is by eliminating the attack surface. The system avoids DDoS threats by hiding the source identities and the corporate network. It does this by creating a proxy that will handle the communication between the user and the app.
  2. Predict user experience —  The current network architecture promotes latency but the new Cloud Client Dashboard from Red Piranha, which utilises SASE technology, will optimise the bandwidth and cut down the number of steps for users to communicate with the apps. You can track everything from the time users are logged in to the network, which apps are being utilised at the data centre, and the network servers and architecture being managed by the IT.
  3. Provides a snapshot of your network — With a holistic perspective, you can easily pinpoint weaknesses and strengths.  You can also scale your digital business more efficiently with SASE.
  4. More security — The deployment of the Crystal Eye into SASE will allow you to save money. Data demands and technological innovation have overburdened the network-based security infrastructure and data centres. As a result, organisations are forced to adopt new services to compensate. SASE, meanwhile, does not rely too much on the apps but rather the users. It does not matter how many applications are being accessed, each of the users is still secure.

Crystal Eye and SASE is a Game-Changer

 As such, the headline, “Red Piranha unveils the next evolution in multi-tenant Crystal Eye Cloud SASE deployment,” should not give you pause. For example, a 2019 survey revealed that nearly 7 in 10 enterprises are already migrating their critical apps to the cloud. In the same vein, the Australian UTM developer feels that the move will allow their clients to manage data and databases while further simplifying their interface.

Also, both Red Piranha and Gartner have similar goals, and that is to focus on the user experience. Non-SASE environments use a VPN to connect to the network for security.  Applications are now being distributed across the cloud or multiple clouds, but each of those apps still goes through the VPN.

The over-reliance on this security channel has proven to be a problem. With SASE, security is brought closer to the user, such as the software-defined wide area networking, network as a service, WAN, and the zero-trust network access.
