Platform showcased at M2M Evolution Conference Booth 626

LAS VEGAS –  Conference – Distrix has released version 4.2 of its flagship Distrix Network Platform, introducing new features that allow network managers to secure () and (IIoT) deployments by extending VPN capabilities to any layer of the OSI stack. The extension of for edge-to-datacenter and edge-to-edge communications also allows legacy devices and protocols to be integrated in a common network infrastructure with newer systems.

“This latest release continues to extend Distrix’ security model to deal with threats from outside and inside enterprise networks by enabling organizations to fully segregate and isolate application traffic,” says Jay Friedman, president, Distrix. “Organizations can easily extend this level of security to manage the addition of IIoT devices to their networks in order to realize the true benefits of communications.”

Version 4.2 also adds flexibility to the Distrix edge-based policy engine, allowing for customization of security and packet processing policies at the edge of networks using an open scripting language. As a result, organizations are able to scale bandwidth, normalize data, and add new levels of application security.

In addition, the latest release of the Distrix Network Virtualization Platform includes enhancements for simplifying network management, including a graphical view of the Distrix overlay network and an expanded set of network operating metrics through a GUI or RESTful API.
