Lookout Partners with HPE Aruba to Deliver Integrated SASE Architecture with Advanced Data Protection
Lookout security service edge (SSE) with Aruba EdgeConnect Enterprise SD-WAN helps customers implement a modern SASE architecture that protects data across devices, apps, networks and clouds
SAN FRANCISCO, October 31, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Lookout, Inc.the endpoint and cloud security company, today announced the integration of its security service edge (SSE) with HPE Aruba EdgeConnect Enterprise SD-WAN Platform. Lookout SSE with Aruba EdgeConnect provides customers with an industry-leading Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) architecture that combines network security with an integrated security stack that delivers secure web gateway, cloud access security broker, zero trust network access and data loss protection.
According to Gartner®, “SASE is a key enabler of modern digital business transformation, including working from anywhere and the adoption of edge computing and cloud-delivered applications. It increases the visibility, agility, resiliency and security. SASE also dramatically simplifies the delivery and operation of critical network and security services primarily through a cloud-delivered model. SASE can reduce the number of vendors required for access secure to one or two over the next few years.”1 Additionally, a recent Gartner survey found that 75% of organizations are pursuing security vendor consolidation in 2022, up from 29% in 2020.2
Customer benefits of the integrated Lookout/HPE Aruba SASE solution include:
Protected access to data and applications from anywhere: Lookout provides secure access to internet, cloud, SaaS and private apps and protects the data stored in these apps from unauthorized access and misuse. Using adaptive access policies with continuous user and device risk monitoring, Lookout SSE protects any app, any cloud, any user, and any device against internal and external cyber threats.
Simplified management of branch connectivity: Aruba EdgeConnect Enterprise customers can use the Service Orchestration workflow in Aruba Orchestrator to automatically create secure, highly available IPSec tunnel pairs between branch offices and Lookout SSE platform enforcement points. This eliminates the need to manually create tunnels each time a new branch or application is onboarded and simplifies site connectivity management.
Improved visibility of all end user activity: Aruba customers can use Lookout SSE to gain better visibility to understand device posture, IP addresses, and user context when users are accessing enterprise applications and data, or the Internet in general , from any branch or remote location. This allows customers to monitor end-user activity, gain control and visibility over shadow computing/rogue application usage, and monitor internal and external cyber threats.
Better performance for accessing cloud and SaaS applications: SD-WAN customers are forced to reroute traffic for cloud and SaaS applications to enforce inline security policies and gain full traffic visibility. However, traffic backhauling increases latency and affects the performance of these applications. With the common watchtower/Aruba solution, EdgeConnect Enterprise SD-WAN customers can avoid backhauling traffic for cloud and SaaS applications, enforce inline policies, and maintain full visibility, all without compromising performance.
“Aruba is excited to add Lookout to the Aruba EdgeConnect partner ecosystem,” said Fraser Street, Head of Aruba WAN Technical Alliances. “This state-of-the-art integration combines Aruba SD-WAN leader with Lookout SSE in a unified SASE architecture so our enterprise customers can secure their employees from endpoint to cloud.”
“As organizations seek to accelerate growth through the use of cloud services, the traditional enterprise security perimeter has transformed into a fluid, ever-changing edge. Users now interface with applications , data, and other enterprise users wherever they are, effectively moving the edge of the perimeter to their current location,” said Sundaram Lakshmanan, Director of SASE Product Technology, Lookout. “Integrating our SSE capabilities with Aruba SD-WAN simplifies management controls and provides a rich policy framework to protect sensitive data without hampering productivity.”
