Connector as a Service

Prebuilt 50+ Connectors and comes out of box

Problem Statement

 

Security Product Companies have huge need to build Connectors will third party applications. This need is driven by multiple factors such as Customer requirement, enhance product capabilities etc.

Target systems can be present on Cloud, On-premise, Hybrid environment.

Complexities are added in terms of the varied options offers by Target systems such as : 

  • Interfaces available to integrate ( REST API, SOAP, SFTP, Message Queue, SNMP, SDKs etc.)
  • Data types (JSON, Syslog, File system, XML etc.)
  • Authentication and Authorization options ( OAuth, API Token, Username/Password, OTP, MFA, SAML etc.)
  • Rate limit, Pagination, Latency, Concurrency
  • Data volume

Security Product Companies end up writing customized, non-standardized Connectors for these Target systems. This leads not only to increased development and support cost but also less efficient Connectors in terms of performance, scalability and extensibility.

Solution Overview
