Dispersive: Zero-Trust Networking with Multipath VPN

Rajiv Pimplaskar, CEO

The growing adoption of the public cloud accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic and the workfrom- home paradigm, have caused corporate infrastructure security to lag. The new normal “returnto- work” model requires a significant step up in this area. For most companies, VPNs are essential and yet one of the most vulnerable and frustrating elements of the network, representing cost, complexity, and poor user experience. Helping businesses overcome the issues of traditional VPNs is where Dispersive “flips the script.” Dispersive can dynamically establish active-active multipath VPNs with its military-grade, cloud-native virtualized network fabric. These next-gen VPNs can keep corporate data secure even against sophisticated nation-state threats while also improving performance and resilience, not possible with legacy VPN products. "We have applied proven concepts of spread spectrum technology used to secure military communications and implemented within IP networking and the modern Internet architecture," says Rajiv Pimplaskar, CEO of Dispersive.

While other zero trust providers stop at the network level relying on decades-old point-to-point GRE or IPSec tunnels, Dispersive goes above and beyond with its next-gen VPN solution.
Developed by satellite communications and signals intelligence experts, Dispersive takes a zero trust model to the underlying network that not only safeguards but also improves performance and availability. As a result, Dispersive's multipath VPN can solve both security loopholes and performance bottlenecks.

Dispersive follows a three-part approach to fortify any corporate network. The first one is cloaking the enterprise IT architecture. This is like putting stealth technology on a fighter plane and making it invisible to the outside world. This makes it virtually impossible for hackers and cyber terrorists to detect enterprise resources and sensitive user relationships. The second part separates the orchestration plane from the control plane and data plane, making it extremely hard even for a sophisticated bad actor to intercept the data flow. Dispersive's VPN solution splits the data into multiple flows that follow several paths between the source and destination with individualized and constantly rotating keys making the solution even quantum-computing resistant. Dispersive's third and last piece is protecting all the endpoints of enterprise IT architecture. Dispersive's VPN is well-tuned even for mobile hotspots, satellite links, or low bandwidth high latency connections.

Businesses can use DispersiveCloud as a multi-tenant SaaS product and connect multiple end devices like mac, windows, Linux systems, or even iOS or Android devices and start using it right away. Moreover, large enterprises and governments can opt to use DispersiveFabric as a software product to deploy their own single-tenant private cloud solution.
In either situation, Dispersive can be used to deploy a new converged cloud native infrastructure or to augment existing Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) projects.

Recently, a digital health practice has implemented Dispersive after experiencing significant bandwidth and performance issues with their previous VPN solution. The client previously spent almost 15 minutes uploading medical imagery, like radiology data, and CT scans for access by remoteworking radiologists. With Dispersive, the client was able to accelerate the performance by over ten times and keep the data super secure, while also meeting and exceeding HIPAA compliance. These benefits enabled the client to dramatically reduce the waiting time for sending these imagery files. Notably, Dispersive, with 51 patents granted, can bring the same benefits to the financial and legal services space, where businesses face similar data security and performance issues.

Moving ahead, Dispersive is looking to scale its operation to more clients worldwide. With the perimeter of enterprise security dissolving and data security becoming a key concern for many business stakeholders, Dispersive is ready to safeguard enterprise IT architecture with its military-grade virtual networking solution.
