Autobahn. The German word for motorway, it’s globally known as the highway with no speed limit. In fact, the German government recommends drivers go no slower than 130 kph (80 mph) in unrestricted sections to keep pace. Now, however, Autobahn has a whole new meaning: It’s one of the fastest secure network connections available for businesses today.
The newest update to the Todyl Security Platform, Project Autobahn, enables faster connections in, out of, and throughout our Secure Global Network (SGN), the infrastructure that powers our SASE module.
Here at Todyl, we are always pushing to shatter the status quo of security capabilities for companies of any size. Distributed employees and offices, SaaS apps, and cloud services have transformed the internet into the modern corporate network, making fast, secure connectivity more important than ever. That’s why we challenged our engineering team to go back to the drawing board and redesign the system to deliver the fastest SASE connection possible.
Project Autobahn is a combination of new encryption processes, protocols, device drivers, and more, with a complete rewrite of the SGN and Agent connection mechanisms to remove limits on network speed, just like its namesake. Although ISPs, distance, and LAN equipment will affect overall speed, with Project Autobahn, your SASE shouldn’t affect your throughput.
We like to think of it as “invisible security,” delivering best-in-class, Zero Trust and network security, with no impact to the user experience.
So, why did we do this? Here are a few of the benefits that Todyl users will experience thanks to the new Project Autobahn SGN implementation:
In essence, with Project Autobahn, you get all the aspects of Todyl that you know and love at higher speeds than ever before. That means faster network performance and a streamlined end-user experience, leading to more control over your environment and stronger security overall.
Don’t just take our word for it. Here’s some feedback we’ve received from Todyl partners who participated in Project Autobahn’s beta:
