Mako Devices

Mako devices are networking devices that can only be managed in the cloud-based Mako Central Management System (CMS) network management application. Available in a range of types, functions and form factors, current Mako devices include security gateways, VPN concentrators, access points and managed switches. The use cases for each product line and model vary; however, all Mako devices are designed with ease of management and high security as top priorities, all are fully managed in the Mako CMS and the entire Mako System is PCI DSS certified.

SECURITY GATEWAYS

Mako security gateways combine a multitude of networking functions within a single device, including next-gen firewall protection, VLAN routing and switching, encrypted Mako VPN Cloud tunneling, wired and wireless connectivity, SD-WAN failover and more. Deploying a Mako security gateway to each of your distributed sites, could eliminate several routers, firewalls or other devices at each site, greatly simplifying your network and potentially reducing costs.

VPN CONCENTRATORS

Mako VPN concentrators are enterprise-grade rackmount or virtual Mako devices that can connect many hundreds or thousands of remote sites to a central network, third-party services or each other via thousands of secure VPN tunnels using SD-WAN technology. They are optimized for hardware and geographic redundancy and high-throughput, low-overhead performance, resulting in maximum speed and reliability. Typically deployed to head offices, data centers or other larger sites, rackmount models can do double duty as a wired security gateway for their deployment site, with an integrated next-gen firewall and VLAN support. Optional SFP ports add WAN flexibility for circuit redundancy. Alternatively, virtual models are available for deployment to popular cloud platforms.

ACCESS POINTS

Mako devices in the 4000 Series have both security gateway and access point (AP) deployment modes. Access point mode is a security feature that can be activated in the Mako CMS to restrict the device to only those functions necessary to provide wireless connectivity. These smaller Mako devices are typically used to extend wireless range, to improve broadcast/reception positioning or to upgrade existing deployments to the latest performance standards.

MANAGED SWITCHES

Mako managed switches increase port density beyond that of a Mako security gateway while maintaining centralized control, enabling you to build fully managed, secure local networks of any size. The Mako 1008-SW/P 8-port, Mako 1024-SW/P 24-port, and Mako 1048-SW/P 48-port managed switches provide fine-grained port control and offer Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), full VLAN support and Power over Ethernet (PoE) on all ports.
