Participate in the value proposition of plug-and-protect networking

What has been missing so far, is a secure-by-design solution that combines readily available security technologies to simplify networking.

Circle Networks' core offering is to protect existing corporate networks against cybercrime. The product is a suite of secure switches, based on the newest concepts of software-defined networking. As a one-stop solution, it augments switching tasks with security features that cover all VPN functionality, but go decisive steps further. The switches, virtualised routers for cloud applications and fixed and mobile WiFi access points connect hosts to a network independent of age, technology standard or software generation. In replacing access switches, no network architecture changes are needed. And by avoiding the need for client agents, plug-and-protect ease-of-use is provided and user acceptance is maximised.
