Adapt S1

A simple, affordable and industry-proven path to achieving Secure Access Service Edge (SASE)


Learn more about Adapt S1

Combining Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) and network security into a single cloud-based offering, Adapt S1 is a modern and secure software-defined network architecture to protect against the latest threats and to provide more agility to the business. With cloud-based security at the forefront, Adapt S1 provides secure access to applications regardless of where staff are working, as long as they have internet connectivity to reach the corporate network.

As an Australian mid-sized business, your current ICT infrastructure might not be where you need it. Your wide area network may be too old, inflexible, and too expensive to maintain, hindering your business from expanding and keeping up with an ever-changing market.

Can you see what's happening in your WAN to ensure that it's secure, flexible, and performs better to your needs?

Introducing Adapt S1, an innovative secure by design software defined WAN in one simple standard package. Its cloud delivered, cost efficient, and will bring the expertise you need to get it up and running.

What are the benefits of Adapt S1? Your sites stay up when other links go down without interrupting important video calls thanks to the built-in capability to use the Telstra mobile network without extra mobile data charges. Your people can get on with work and stay productive because SD-WAN technologies ensure that applications perform as they should.

Looking after your network has never been easier. You can check the network vitals with your Telstra partner the way you want to, which frees up your it teams to focus on higher value work. It's much easier to grow your network as your business does without the fear of opening your business up to risks thanks to the built-in cloud security.

Adapt S1 also helps simplify your cyber security compliance, enabling you to stay on top of threats without needing specialized resources. Hassle-free deployment means that we've already done the heavy lifting so you

don't have to. Adapt S1 is built into our core network and delivered as a service using best of breed technologies like vmware SD-WAN and paloalto network's prisma access. Plus you'll get the bonus of a modern secure network architecture aligned with SASE.

It also provides an easier migration path and minimizes transition risks if you have a Telstra MPLS network and other Telstra services thanks to our sd-wan gateways. So you can seamlessly connect your existing network services or operate a hybrid network.

Deliver a better end-user experience

Adapt S1 offers better application performance through SD-WAN technology, enabling you to utilise bandwidth more efficiently. With traffic prioritisation across multiple fixed or wireless links and faster and more resilient paths to public clouds through Telstra’s core network, this ensures your critical applications (whether they are located in private cloud as SaaS or in-house in a private data centre) are prioritised so that your staff can get their jobs done.

Simplify the cyber security compliance requirements

Industry-standard security technologies built in Adapt S1 including NGFW giving mid-sized organisations a modern secure network architecture that aligns with SASE in a simple, cloud delivered model. This may help you simplify your compliance requirements to protect your critical asset, data and safeguard the organisation from emerging cyber security threats.

Stay on top of cyber threats and reduce maintenance costs

Moving from a hardware-centric to a cloud-centric security model means you eliminate the operational cost of maintaining on-premise firewalls or buying and maintaining dedicated hardware. Have peace of mind that you have access to latest updates, threat definitions and firmware as part of Adapt S1 delivered via the cloud.

Do more security with less

Adapt S1 integrates multiple network and security components (NextGen Firewall, Threat Prevention, Secure Web Gateway, DNS Security) reducing the complexity of managing multiple third-party solutions and making it significantly easier to monitor suspicious activity and reducing threat vectors.

Consistent data protection everywhere

Cloud-based security enables you to apply and enforce consistent security policies across all locations and users, whether they are working in the office, or from home as long as they have internet connectivity to the corporate network. Adapt S1 protects threat vectors equally without dependency on premise based or individually hosted firewalls.

Hassle-free deployment and flexible migration

We’ve already done most of the work for you so you don’t have to. We have integrated the network and security components in Adapt S1 to align to SASE, making it more affordable for mid-sized organisations. We’ve also built SD-WAN network gateways into our core network with redundancy, to support a simplified, hybrid SD-WAN / MPLS architecture. This architecture allows an easier migration path from traditional MPLS networks into a new, secure and available Adaptive Network.
