Cloud Security Service (CSS) is a cloud-hosted security that protects an Enterprise branch and/or data center. The security services include firewalls, URL filtering, and other such services.
In CSS, you can define and configure a cloud security service instance and establish a secure tunnel directly from the Edge to the CSS.
You can also configure the branch Edge to establish a tunnel directly to the cloud service pop. This option has the following advantages:
- Simplified configuration.
- Saves link bandwidth costs by offloading non-enterprise traffic to the internet.
- The branch sites are protected from malicious traffic by redirecting the Internet traffic to a cloud security service.
