A leading provider of software-defined access solutions for the hybrid cloud, today announced that it has been included in Gartner’s recent “Fact or Fiction: Are Software-Defined Perimeters Really the Next-Generation VPNs” report on software defined perimeters (SDPs). Safe-T is the only Israeli company, listed as a Representative Vendor.
According to Gartner, “Enterprise access requirements are growing ever more complex due to application dynamics, cloud adoption and mergers.” The report further says that “To cut through this complexity, technical professionals should explore SDP — a new technology whose strength lies in facilitating access to enterprise apps.”
In addition to defining SDP and comparing and contrasting with other access solutions such as a VPNs, the report recognizes seven SDP vendors, including Safe-T. Within the list, Safe-T is included as one of the three vendors offering stand-alone SDP products and is the only one of those that does not require any client installed on the end-user’s machine.
The report also provides recommendations to technical professionals working in network security, for example:
- “Use SDP — despite the immaturity of the space — to be able to respond to the increasing enterprise application complexity and demand.
- Migrate to SDPs if you have to support client access to decentralized enterprise apps with REST-based APIs, in multiple clouds or sites.
- Evaluate SDPs versus traditional VPNs for all end-of-life replacements and refreshes of existing VPN infrastructures.”
“We are excited and honored to be recognized by Gartner as one of seven Representative SDP Vendors,” said Safe-T CEO Shachar Daniel. “We believe our inclusion as a vendor in this report validates our SDP vendor leadership and the reason our customers rely on us to secure access to their sensitive data and applications. Safe-T constantly innovates data protection and secure application access technologies, which empowers our global customers to utilize new and evolving technologies without concern for security compromise.” – PRNewswire
