Add an extra layer of protection with
advanced network perimeter security.

Bring security to your virtual network’s edge.

Moving your organization to the virtual world can help you become more agile and efficient. But the security measures you had in the physical world may not be as effective in this new environment. And that can leave you vulnerable to cyberattacks, with hackers constantly patrolling your network edge, looking for weak spots.

Keep your enterprise apps and resources hidden from attackers with Software Defined Perimeter. It’s a scalable, managed security-as-a-service solution based on the software defined security model. It provides an encrypted connection between your users’ devices and apps on a “need to know” basis—allowing access only to authenticated and approved users. This network perimeter security solution is built on our years of experience and technical expertise in virtual network security.

What is Software Defined Perimeter?

Imagine your network and apps are an exclusive private club where everyone wants to go. Software Defined Perimeter acts as your bouncer, allowing only approved users to access network resources. It authenticates identities and devices, letting you “hide” enterprise apps and resources from attackers. 

How does Software Defined Perimeter work?

First, users open the Software Defined Perimeter app on their device. The controller then validates a user’s device, certificate and location, and confirms access to enterprise apps. Application gateways build tunnels into your network to connect users to resources. And finally, approved users can access the apps they need.
