The number of connected devices is increasing exponentially, which has made the job of managing and securing networks more complex and demanding than ever before. In this paper, we present a novel service-based solution for securing edge networks that are poorly managed and do not offer adequate security and management features. Our proposed system includes a smart gateway Securebox offering advanced security and network management features at device level granularity and a Security and Management Service (SMS) which provides services including traffic analysis services, management services for remote device, network and securitypolicy etc. Instead of tight coupling with hardware, our systemenables flexible and on-demand deployment of security servicesto detect and block malicious activities in the network. Ourdemonstration 1 shows that the proposed system is easy todeploy, manage and operate different networks and resolves a number of challenges in network security management domain.
