The Virtual Invisible Network solution was described by independent US-based cyber security experts, Secure State as “amongst the most secure products in the market today” and “in line with the top Fortune 500 companies with which SecureState works.”
Along with being a winner of the Global Security Challenge, a highly respected international security competition sponsored by the United States Government, the network technology has been put to the test by many of the world’s leading IT companies and consultancies with the same result: it’s difficult to hack because it’s difficult to find.
Why is this the case? In a nutshell, the network design has no central point (traditionally the access point for many breaches) for intruders to target in order to see and get access to the entire network. This is unlike traditional network solutions.
Devices on the network sit behind closed firewalls, and the Broker Service that creates the meshed network (i.e. joins points of the network together) is the only aspect of the network solution that has public visibility and it is not able to join the network it creates. This means that even if an intruder were able to breach the public Broker Service, they are unable to use it to gain access to any of the VIN networks that it helps establish nor intercept network traffic.
With no central point in the network for intruders to target to see an entire VIN network, disparate devices (nodes) communicating directly with each other and the Broker Server unable to communicate or connect to the network it creates, Netlinkz’s technology has been described as “virtually invisible”.
Through its architecture or by default, the Virtual Invisible Network is a far more secure virtual networking solution than any Virtual Private Network (VPN) solution or any SD-WAN solution that utilises VPN as a data plane.
