The Vigilant Cloud Front service obfuscates and organization core infrastructure by deploying a proxy service for any application thru public and hybrid-cloud formations. Most proxy services are dedicated to high volume CDN that have significant upfront commitments and limited control over geographic presence advertising.The Vigilant cloud front service uses a combination of remote cloud and local cloud custom network appliances to advertise geographic information based on real and virtual presence.
2 Technical information
GeoIP (Geographic IP ) advertising allows an organization IP address to be associated with a local Geographic region typically down to the city level. Routing lookups allow the true location to be identified by upstream routers. Through various proprietary routing technologies and software defined networks, a server in LA can appear to access systems from New York, or South America. Depending on the level of investment, the location of the advertised IP can be published to the desired city, or the IP can be advertised and routed (either thru physical L3 hops or completely Virtual hops)
The table below outlines typical cost of the GeoIP publishing
| GeoIP Advertising
|| $50/month/IP Plus Bandwidth Cost
||General region and real location can be discovered thru route lookups. No real DDOS, obfuscation or GeoIP validation.
| Software based GeoIP routing
||GeoIP location and software generated L3 GeoIP routing. Complex route management. DDOS protection on all hops.
|GeoIP advertising and IP Proxy
|| $200/Month/IP Plus bandwidth cost
||Layer 3 route lookups show general region (desired remote city/country) or closest hop). Limited DDOS, good obfuscation.
| Geo Locate Workloads
||Complex replication management and tunnel arrangements.
