Network-enforced, identity-centric solution empowers enterprises to protect hybrid IT
SAN FRANCISCO– [April 16, 2018] – Cyxtera Technologies, the secure infrastructure company, today announced the latest release of AppGate SDP, its flagship secure access solution, giving organizations a way to curb the epidemic of security compromises created by over-privileged access and obsolete physical perimeter solutions. AppGate SDP 4.0 implements the zero-trust principles of software-defined perimeter as a full network platform, providing a unified, enterprise-grade solution to secure today’s diverse, hybrid IT environments. AppGate SDP creates encrypted, one-to-one connections between users and resources and dynamically enforces identity-centric access policies at the network level.
Benefits of AppGate SDP
“Traditional tools like VPN, NAC and firewalls can’t address changes brought about by the cloud, remote workers, BYOD and industrialized cyber threats,” said Ricardo Villadiego, General Manager, Secure Access & Fraud Solutions for Cyxtera. “AppGate SDP is the foundation of a cyber-resilient enterprise, creating a protective software-defined perimeter that only permits people to access resources they are authorized to use, when they are authorized to use them.”

“What SDP really does is modernize the concept of a VPN by setting up a secure tunnel between users/devices and applications regardless of their location,” said Doug Cahill, Senior Analyst at ESG-Global Research. “Cyxtera’s AppGate SDP product allows organizations to leverage an SDP to protect users and the applications they access with an architecture well-suited for today’s hybrid environments and is designed to support future use cases and technologies.”
