Networks using Marconi can take advantage of the native developer platform to easily launch networking services, such as blockchain network security, multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud connectivity, more advanced firewalls and deep packet inspection. In addition, rather than relying on additional hardware or software to protect networks, Marconi's Mainnet comes with security built in through low-level mutating encryption schemes that secure all connections between every network node.
To help realize its expanded vision, Marconi also announced that preeminent cryptographer and co-inventor of public key encryption, Dr. Whitfield Diffie, has joined ts technical advisory board.
"It is encouraging that Marconi is working to add a new layer of security and privacy to the blockchain and Internet ecosystem into its mission," said Diffie.
The Marconi team, which previously built and scaled networks for many of the world's largest technology companies like Google, Microsoft and Intel, recognized first hand how inefficient current network-management applications were and wanted to build a system that helps businesses of all sizes manage infrastructure. Currently, infrastructure teams at most organizations rely on expensive, inflexible hardware-based appliances to secure, manage and scale their networks. However, Mainnet gives greater functionality and agility through a software-based networking platform for corporate or distributed networks that don't require proprietary hardware or software.
