Identity-Centric, Network Enforced Perimeter Security
Zero Trust Network Access
Appgate SDP is 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.
Designed around user and device identity, not the IP address. SDP builds a multidimensional profile of a user or device and authorizes users before granting access.
ZERO TRUST MODEL
Enforces the “zero trust model” by applying the principle of least privilege to the network. It completely reduces the attack surface.
BUILT LIKE CLOUD, FOR CLOUD
Built for the cloud, and like the cloud. Engineered to operate natively in cloud networks, it’s completely distributed and as scalable as the internet itself.
HOW APPGATE SDP WORKS
Appgate’s Software-Defined Perimeter architecture exceeds the NIST Zero Trust Architecture Specifications by delivering a truly superior Zero Trust access solution.
Software Defined Perimeter Use Cases
Better network security than legacy VPNs, firewalls and NACs
Meet compliance requirements in an ‘audit-ready’ manner
Secure public cloud workloads with native integrations to cloud-specific security
Provide consistent access control across hybrid environments
Entitle remote and third-party access with fine-grained controls
Reduce the network attack surface by as much as 98%
Seamlessly connect users to applications using patented multi-tunnel capabilities
Mitigate exposure from the Internet of Things and DDoS attacks
ENTERPRISE-GRADE, CLOUD NATIVE, CLOUD SCALE
Appgate 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.
LIVE ENTITLEMENTS: DYNAMIC, CONTEXTSENSITIVE ACCESS POLICIES
FINE-GRAINED, INDIVIDUALIZED NETWORK ACCESS
Appgate SDP uses 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, Appgate SDP creates an encrypted tunnel—a ‘Segment of One’—allowing traffic to flow only from the user device to the protected resource.
PROTECTS END-USER DEVICES FROM UNAUTHORIZED
Appgate 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.
Single-Packet Authorization technology cloaks infrastructure so that only verified users can communicate with the system. It’s invisible to port scans and cryptographically hashed as further defense. Gateways and controllers are completely cloaked so they cannot be probed, scanned, or attacked. This significantly reduces the network attack surface by preventing network reconnaissance and limiting lateral movement.

Forrester coined the term Zero Trust 10 years ago, and back then it was all about securing the network. To treat all traffic on the network as untrusted, and the original technical document was the Zero Trust Network Architecture. Today Zero Trust is now an Extended Ecosystem that adds 6 pillars to the network component: people, devices, workloads or resources, data and 2 encompassing pillars, visibility & Analytics, and Automation & Orchestration. Securing the network access can really accelerate your zero trust journey. Zero Trust isn’t ONLY SDP, but Zero Trust CAN’T EXIST without SDP.
Virtual workers and third-party contractors need access to your critical systems from anywhere on any device. But VPNs treat all users the same: an IP address allowed to connect to your network – or not. AppGate SDP: grants access based on identity with business and risk awareness, secures an encrypted 1:1 connection between user and approved system only, renders unauthorized resources completely invisible, and eliminates lateral movement on internal networks.
Moving to the cloud comes with its challenges. Datacenter migration requires months of planning and testing, it’s difficult to stage migration to minimize downtime and it involves coordination between compute, network and SecOps. AppGate SDP works across heterogenous environments, providing a unified secure access solution and simplifying network security. AppGate SDP will: Simplify planning and execution of stage migration, Reduce downtime with dynamic entitlements, allow for a unified policy framework across all clouds, and Eliminate cloud vendor lock-in.
Balancing the speed of DevOps with the reactionary pace of security is a struggle. DevOps teams need to work without restrictions and delay, at a cadence and workflow that allows for maximum productivity. Security teams need to ensure they don’t impede the speed of work and innovation while securing access to dev, test, and deployment environments consistently. AppGate SDP provides secure and automated multi-tunnel access to developers, removing VPN hurdles and unleashing productivity. Developers benefit from a transparent user experience with simultaneous, location agnostic access based on dynamic live entitlements that change security based on what’s being done, where and when. Security teams benefit from precise, fine grained access control and streamlined operations.
Appgate’s Software-Defined Perimeter is infrastructure agnostic and can be deployed anywhere resources need secure access. Appgate SDP as a Service is also available should you want Appgate to deploy, monitor and maintain your SDP infrastructure.You can deploy SDP in all Environments from Multi-Cloud (AWS, Azure, GPC) to Containerized Environments, On-Premises or Virtualized, and Legacy Networks and Infrastructure.
AppGate SDP is an open platform; it includes a bi-directional API interface that can help you leverage nearly any other investment you’ve already made in other products and platforms including Identity and Access Management, Directory Services, ITSM, SIEM and Business Support Systems. Weave Appgate SDP into the fabric of your business and IT operations, giving you the freedom to deploy security-as-code and mature DevOp practices.
