SECURE ACCESS: AppGate

A ‘Segment of One’ for Secure, Granular and Efficient Access Control

The growth of enterprise collaboration, consumption of information on personal devices and mobile distributed workers has resulted in the collapse of the traditional perimeter. Today, users require access to business applications, data and services whether on-premises or in the cloud, at work or on the road. And in today’s globally connected business environment, those users could be employees, partners or customers whose broad entitlements represent a significant security risk.

In the new world of pervasive internal and external threats, distributed organizations and global ecosystems, the perimeter is more porous and less relevant than ever. The old models simply aren’t working. We need to move from perimeter-centric, VLAN and IP-focused security to a model that focuses on securing the entire path from user to application, device to service - on a one-to-one basis.


 
AppGate provides a new security model for today's perimeterless IT landscape

AppGate enables organizations to adopt a software defined perimeter approach for granular security control. AppGate makes the application/server infrastructure effectively “invisible.” It then delivers access to authorized resources only, verifying a number of user variables each session—including device posture and identity—before granting access to an application. Once the user logs out, the secure tunnel disappears. Additionally, when a new device is on a public network, or a device that failed to log in tries to connect, additional security requirements (such as multi-factor authentication) can be enforced, or access can be denied.

With AppGate, the full security posture—including device, location, time, group, configuration and more—are used by the policy engine to dynamically define access to applications. AppGate does not depend on a traditional network perimeter model or require specific hardware, therefore it can be used across cloud and hybrid environments by leveraging software defined virtualization techniques
