Frequently asked questions

What is embedded security?

As businesses move away from traditional office-based working and embrace a hybrid model, there’s more risk to your network than ever before. With people working from home and using different devices, your network and the public internet overlap more than ever before, posing a risk to both your inbound and outbound traffic.Traditional firewalls can’t handle the complex demands of this changing landscape, so embedded security moves security controls closer to where they’re needed, bringing all the necessary security and networking tools into a single, cloud-based solution.

How do you protect users?

The Embedded Security Controls platform runs security policies that protect people accessing the internet from your sites. As part of the initial set-up, we’ll work with you to fine-tune these policies, and you can apply security policies at a site, giving you flexibility when setting them up. The solution includes a remote access feature, which protects people using the internet when they’re away from your sites.

Can we customise the solution?

You can select as many of the security features as you would like for each of your sites, and you can select the aggregated bandwidth you need for a customised solution. We’ll roll out a base policy security configuration for each of the security features you select. This should help reduce the amount of customisation required as part of the initial set up. When the solution’s in-life, you have the option to change all of your security policies through our SSR process. You can’t do any customisation outside of the core product functionality.

Is there a client portal so we can easily access reports?

Yes. We’ll give you access to the Security Hub portal (accessible via the My Account portal), where you’ll be able to access a number of reports so you can easily stay on top of your network.

How do you set up a new user or add a new site?

You don’t need to do anything to add a new user. One of the benefits of Embedded Security Controls is that there’s no need to change your service for new hires or leavers - as long as your aggregated bandwidth usage stays the same, you don’t need to make any changes.

Adding a new site is different.

As part of your solution requirements you’ll have told us the number of sites that require internet breakout via the Embedded Security Controls platform. During the initial set up, we’ll have configured the IPSec tunnel on our platform to accept your internet traffic. So when you add a new site, we’ll need to set up a new IPSec tunnel for this site.

As for the initial setup, you’re responsible for configuring the IPSec tunnel on your connectivity CPE.

If you want to add a new site, you’ll need to raise a Complex Service Request (CSR) by contacting your Account Manager.
