The constant back and forth key validations between devices provides additional security but can be tedious CPU-intensive when managed at the Edge.
Martello provides an alternative through STREAM VPN, which relies on multi-PSK management performed dynamically by Elfiq Central, the company’s orchestrator. Contrarily to many vendors, STREAM VPN can be encrypted in both AES-128 and AES-256.
Developed as a means to reduce the footprint when compared to conventional VPN methods, STREAM VPN operates at the hardware level, encrypting traffic per flow and neutralizing the intensive requirements put on the processor by other VPN solutions.
With STREAM VPN, clients can benefit from unlimited VPN capabilities within the hardware capacity of their networking device. No longer will multi-site organizations need to design complex hub-and-spoke architectures to avoid taxing their network devices too much. STREAM VPN can handle larger fully-meshed environments than the industry’s typical deployment, as has been demonstrated through third-party validation.
