Software Defined Perimeter (Infographic)

SECURE ACCESS AND FRAUD

A powerful network security platform that delivers the industry’s most comprehensive Software-Defined Perimeter solution, capable of securing any application, on any platform, in any location.

DYNAMIC, CONTEXT-SENSITIVE ACCESS POLICIES

SDP replaces static access rules with live entitlements –dynamic, context-sensitive access policies. Live Entitlements dynamically change security based on what users are doing, where and when. This fine-grained access control ensures individual users access only what they need to do their jobs. It delivers consistent, automated security and removes the human error factor.

PROTECTS END-USER DEVICES FROM UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS

SDP’s Ringfence™ feature isolates and protects both the protected resource and the user device from all inbound connections by securing the latter from inbound connections. Access to internal resources can be granted without concern about malicious users on the local network. Local outbound traffic (DNS, etc.) is untouched.

FINE-GRAINED, INDIVIDUALIZED NETWORK ACCESS

Software Defined Perimeters use a real-time understanding of policy to create individualized perimeters for each user. It ensures that all endpoints attempting to access a given infrastructure are authenticated and authorized prior to being able to access any resources. Once authorized, SDP creates an encrypted tunnel – a ‘Segment of One’ – allowing traffic to flow only from the user device to the protected resource.

ENTERPRISE-GRADE, CLOUD NATIVE, CLOUD SCALE

SDP is engineered to operate natively in cloud networks, with a completely decentralized, distributed, stateless network architecture. Native integration with cloud-specific security features secures public cloud workloads and provides consistent access controls across hybrid environments at scale. Users can leverage patented multi-tunnel capabilities to seamlessly connect users to applications wherever they run.

Fully Managed Software-Defined Perimeter

Forward-thinking enterprises are striving to adopt a more modern approach to network security – one based on the zero trust approach. Implementing a modern security solution can be challenging as many enterprises either over-spend to get the right talent on board or over-depend on inexperienced professionals.

Why customers deploy a Software-Defined Perimeter:

Secure cloud deployments

Identity-centric

  • Extend to AWS & Azure
  • Integrate cloud-native features
  • Unify access control
Lower costs, simplify operations

Zero-trust model

  • Decrease network complexity
  • Leverage existing investments
  • Reduce firewalls & legacy VPNs
Secure high-risk apps and data

Built like cloud, for cloud

  • Protect “Crown Jewels”
  • Control privileged users granularly
  • Secure third-party access

Zero Trust is a fundamental transformation of corporate security from a failed perimeter centric approach
