Enhancements add additional control, while providing novel visualizations of DirectAccess connections in Sentinel, Kajeet’s award-winning, cloud-based IoT Management Platform
McLean, Va. – October 15, 2021 – Kajeet®, a leading provider of mobile IoT connectivity, software and hardware solutions for nearly 3,000 businesses, schools and districts, state and local governments and IoT solution providers, today announced a set of enhancements to DirectAccessTM, a secure private pathway for managing mission-critical applications and IoT devices at scale. DirectAccess enables Kajeet’s enterprise customers to deploy private mobile networks to securely communicate with applications and IoT devices without using public IP addresses.
“By 2025, industry analysts project more than 150,000 IoT devices will newly connect to the internet every 60 seconds. This mind-boggling proliferation of devices, combined with increased instances of network breaches, has created a critical need for companies to have as much security as possible for their remote devices,” said Michael Cooley, general manager of enterprise at Kajeet. “DirectAccess ensures our customers can access and interact with their remote devices without the security risks associated with the public internet. We’re excited to add enhanced connection visualizations and give DirectAccess users even greater control over their active connections while ensuring continuous connectivity and security.”
Upgrades to DirectAccess, which launched in July 2021, include enhanced visualizations of primary and standby site-to-site connections, with clear visibility of IPsec and BGP statuses. It also includes visualizations of all active VPN client connections, allowing corrective actions to be taken immediately through Client Session Management. If a problem on a connected client is identified, Sentinel Master Administrators can immediately disconnect any VPN client user from the network at any time, from anywhere. The enhanced capabilities also include viewing a 30-day detailed history of user activity, which provides the organizations insight about how their staff are utilizing DirectAccess including how often, for how long and by whom.
With the newly added quick connection validation tool, users can quickly validate their secure connection with DirectAccess up and running. Whether behind a site-to-site environment or leveraging a VPN client connection, users can direct their browsers to a static URL, where they can test the health of their connection and security status and take immediate action if needed.
