6WIND Security vRouter Solutions

6WIND virtual routers, or vRouters, are deployed as IPsec VPN software routers on commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) servers. They are successful to replace VPN and security gateways from Cisco, Juniper and more with use cases from 1G to over 100G throughput requirements. Customers save 50 – 90% of their cost per Gigabit per second of encrypted traffic after replacing VPN and security hardware with 6WIND IPsec VPN vRouters.



6WIND Turbo IPsec vRouters are a drop-in replacement for Brocade vRouters with an added bonus of high performance IPsec VPN functionality. 6WIND’s price/performance combo makes it a contender for any vRouter, firewall and secure VPN project.” –Chris Konger, Senior Network Engineer for Sovrn

Use Cases

6WIND security software meets requirements for Service Provider, Enterprise and OEM use cases.




6WIND’s vRouters provide both traditional, CLI-based management and IT-style management based on automation and integration with high level orchestration tools. 6WIND proposes YANG-based NETCONF APIs and supports standard Linux APIs such as iproute and iptables. Configuration can happen through Linux, the CLI and APIs for integration with third-party management tools and orchestrators. For Monitoring, we support the traditional SNMP and syslog mechanisms, plus telemetry through sFlow and graphical analytics (Grafana) with time series data base, including pre-integration with InfluxDB and Grafana. Our data models leverage YANG and are therefore easily understandable and extensible.
