The 10 Hottest Zero-Trust Vendors To Watch In 2021
From scrutinizing users and forsaking VPN to embracing micro-segmentation and authentication throughout the network, here’s a look at 10 zero-trust vendors fighting for the dominant position in this booming market.
Appgate Software Defined Perimeter (SDP) is a zero-trust network access offering designed to simplify and strengthen access controls for every user on any device. It reduces the attack surface by making ports, workloads, and applications invisible unless a user is authenticated and authorized to access, with access permissions based on user context such as role, date, time, location, and device posture.
The offering prevents lateral movement and eliminates visibility and access to unauthorized resources through surgical micro-segmentation and controlling bi-directional connections between resources on the network. Appgate SDP offers a single framework for all users, devices, networks, and infrastructure, while a consistent experience and configuration across hybrid IT reduces administrative burden.
Appgate SDP leverages data from identity and directory systems as well as environmental metadata to dynamically create or extend policies and entitlements. The offering can also push detailed access log activity as well as use risk data from other tools - such as SIEMs and UEBAs - as access criteria, according to Appgate.
