Appgate launched Appgate SDP 6.0, the latest version of its Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) solution. The new version includes a new risk model capability, allowing customers to extend the value and reach of their existing enterprise security tools to simplify and accelerate Zero Trust deployments. Appgate offers a market-leading Software-Defined Perimeter solution, the Consumer Access suite of Risk-Based Authentication and Digital Threat Protection capabilities, and the Immunity suite of offense-oriented software and adversary simulation services.
Customers will be able to assign high/medium/low sensitivity levels to specific workloads and resources with Appgate SDP 6.0’s new risk model capability. It will provide a simple, flexible way to compare user/device risk at sign-on, via existing security tools, to the sensitivity of the resource they are attempting to access. The risk model will then adjust access rights dynamically based on the risk score.
Jawahar Sivasankaran, President, and Chief Operating Officer, Appgate stated, “While Zero Trust is becoming more widely adopted, many organizations have very complex IT environments, including a wide range of already-deployed security tools, and it can be difficult to know where to begin. The user-friendly risk model in the latest version of Appgate SDP will help organizations get the most out of the cybersecurity investments they’ve already made while bringing these tools forward into a Zero Trust security model. We’re focused on continually innovating our solutions to help our customers simplify their cybersecurity journeys, accelerate progress, and scale as their IT infrastructures evolve.”
The new Appgate SDP flexible risk model will enable organizations to easily integrate with existing security tools and map workloads and users. It will also help them quickly deploy and scale the solution and support by providing seamless access to the resources. It also offers automated protection for organizations’ most valuable assets.
Jerry Chapman, engineering fellow at Optiv commented, “Advancing Zero Trust maturity is an iterative, multi-year process, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t make real progress in a relatively short period. A solution like Appgate SDP can provide organizations with the flexibility they need to easily integrate into their cybersecurity stack and simplify the process of defining risk parameters for secure access.”
