Access Control Lists

Managed access between devices.


ACL’s provide a convenient way to allow or deny traffic between devices, and set default rules for when to allow or deny.

Network-wide defaults

Set the default network policy to allow or deny. Allow is a typical mesh network, and deny is a zero-access network. You must explicitly specify which devices have access to each other. Great for more secure environments.

Default Allow Host

Sometimes you dont want peer-to-peer access to particular devices. Perhaps you want to tightly control the traffic entering and leaving devices in a particular network. Here, a Relay can provide a reliable gateway to control that traffic.

Default Deny Host

In a default allow network, you may want 1 or more machines to be un-reachable by default. In this scenario, override the ACL rule for the host to deny, and now, no machines have access to the device unless you explicitly allow it.

Fine-grained Access Management

Our ACL’s graph allows you to explicitly turn on or off access between any two devices in your network.
