How they did it →
"Tempered Networks gave us a simple way to achieve end-to-end private networking for our Building Automation network that's resilient, scalable, and secure. In less than 20 minutes, we were able to deploy our first cloaked overlay network without having to modify systems or involve IT."

Segmentation Alternatives for Campus
Networks are Complex and Costly
A modern campus is often like a small city. The typical network has to support a variety of devices and functions, such as building controls, payment systems, research environments, cloud-based tools for learning and collaboration, and much more. However, securely connecting and segmenting such a variety of devices at scale across multi-tenant environments is very complex and time-consuming.
The lack of good solutions forces organizations
to deal with issues such as:
Segmenting and isolating different systems across a flat or shared network to meet security and compliance requirements
Granting and revoking remote access to specific systems as people come and go
Decreased network availability and performance due to broadcast storms
Traditional IT solutions such as firewalls, VPNs, routers, modems, ACLs, and VLANs are not the answer. They require significant time and expertise to deploy and manage, yet still remain vulnerable to breach due to insufficient security and segmentation.
We have a better solution that solves these challenges.
Simple, Secure, and Segmented
We deliver peer-to-peer encrypted networks that make it simple to micro-segment devices and systems across highly distributed multi-tenancy environments.
With a simple plug-and-play deployment model and multiple connectivity options (wired, Wi-Fi, cellular, and radio) you can now eliminate the many complex and time-consuming steps required to deploy and manage internal firewalls and VPNs. Reduce connectivity costs, increase security, and improve network up-time with granular segmentation and centralized network control.
Easily isolate and segment devices and systems across flat or shared networks
Simple Cloud Integration
Securely connect previously separate systems for better business intelligence and improved building efficiency
Secure VPN-Less Access
Simple access and verifiable segmentation for employees, students, and vendors
Simple and Fast Deployment
Most customers will deploy hardware HIPswitches (such as the HIPswitch 75) in order to cloak and isolate different devices and systems on the shared campus network. With both wired and WiFi connectivity, the HIPswitch 75 is a cost-effective replacement for smaller single-purpose firewalls that are too costly and complex to deploy at scale.
The HIPrelay is the world's first identity-based router that connects systems and buildings across separate networks, and can be deployed on-premises or in the cloud.The Conductor is the orchestration engine that manages policy for all distributed HIP Services (HIPswitches, HIPservers, and HIPclients), delivering simple control of the network.
The Conductor Delivers Simple and
Centralized Network Control
Eliminate the complex and manual configurations associated with traditional IT solutions through simple point-and-click policy orchestration. Create, deploy, and disconnect overlay networks in seconds, with little to no change to existing network infrastructure.
Policy Orchestration That’s Point-and-Click Simple
Easily create isolated network segments and configure policy using the radio buttons. This simple process replaces the multiple steps of security and network configurations (using network addresses, ports, certificates, ACLs, and VLANs, and more) typically required by IT staff.
Verify Overlay Network Configuration and Compliance Quickly and Easily
The Visual Trust Map allows you to immediately validate communication policy between protected machines, as well as their HIP Services. With greater control of your network, showing segmentation for regulatory compliance reporting and security audits becomes quick and easy.
