Cradlepoint NetCloud Platform vs. NetCloud Engine
Cradlepoint NetCloud Platform does what it says on the tin; it is the platform which hosts the well-known NetCloud Manager and new NetCloud Engine, acting as the lynchpin of all Cradlepoint cloud services. It is a next generation software and services platform that provides software-defined and cloud-delivered management, connectivity, security services, and more – providing a single view of Cradlepoint’s SaaS offerings.
Cradlepoint NetCloud Engine (NCE) is a brand new cloud service, which provides distributed and mobile enterprises with a modern way to VPN: secure, software-defined, and delivered as a cloud-based service. It works alongside NetCloud Manager and other Cradlepoint cloud applications to enable organisations to embrace network-as-a-service and the benefits of next generation WAN. NCE eliminates the hardware, complexity, and operational costs of traditional WANs for many use cases, and extends the simplicity, utility, and security of traditional LANs anywhere across the Internet.
More about NetCloud Engine
Cradlepoint NetCloud Engine (NCE) securely connects people, places and things with 4G LTE, SD-WAN and Cloud Services.
It provides distributed enterprises with a next generation WAN, and is fuelled by software-defined networking and virtualisation to eliminate the hardware, complexity and operational costs of traditional WANs. It extends the simplicity, security and utility of Layer-3 LANs anywhere across the Internet.
Enabling organisations to build and deploy virtual overlay networks quickly, NCE can connect devices, remote networks and “things” across any private or public cloud within minutes, as well as provide secure access for remote users using Windows, iOS, Android or Linux devices. Working with existing network and security infrastructures, NCE requires no hardware or configuration, scales instantly, and is subscription-based. Providing a multi-layer, network-based approach to security, NCE’s virtual networks protect users, devices and workloads wherever they’re deployed – and can also be micro-segmented on a site, departmental or even user/device level – meaning a zero-trust WAN that can automatically isolate threats and quarantine them.
