Appgate Overview

Appgate brings together a set of differentiated cloud- and hybrid-ready security and analytics products and services. These include Appgate SDP, the industry’s leading Software-Defined Perimeter solution, capable of securing any application, on any platform, in any location; the Consumer Access suite of Risk-Based Authentication and Digital Threat Protection capabilities, and the company’s Immunity range of offense-oriented software and adversary simulation services.

Zero Trust starts with secure access. Appgate SDP is a leading Zero Trust Network Access solution that simplifies and strengthens access controls for all users, devices, and workloads. By thwarting complex threats, reducing costs, and boosting operational efficiency, Appgate deliver secure access for complex and hybrid enterprises. Appgate SDP complies with and extends beyond the three core principles of the Cloud Security Alliance’s SDP specification to deliver the industry’s only identity-centric, network-enforced perimeter. Below is a list of the key benefits of Appgate SDP.


Strengthen Security

With Appgate SDP ports, workloads and applications are invisible unless authenticated and authorised to access, and you can verify identities with access permissions that are conditional and based on user context such as role, date, time, location and device posture. Dynamically adjust user entitlements as the context surrounding the identity changes in real time, and prevent lateral movement with surgical micro-segmentation that eliminates visibility and access to unauthorised resources.

Reduce Complexity

Reduce complexity with a single framework for all users, devices, networks and infrastructure, as well as flexible options for user access (client or browser-based) and hosting (self-managed or as a service). Consistent experience and configuration across hybrid IT reduces administrative burden, and automated access with metadata and context driven policies allow access entitlements to dynamically adapt to environment. Lastly, simplify compliance with micro-segmentation and comprehensive access logs.

Improve Experience

Improved experience with flexible user options as you can choose from client or browser-based access. Multi-tunnelling connects users directly to all approved cloud, SaaS and on-prem resources simultaneously and boosts productivity with a seamless and consistent user experience with simple onboarding. Ultra-high performance with 93% throughput efficiency and less than 1ms latency; reduce tools with a unified solution for trusted access, remote and on-premises.

Streamline Automation

With Appgate SDP you can leverage data from Identity & Directory Systems and environmental meta-data to dynamically create or extend policies and entitlements and control, build and manage infrastructure-as-code with the GitHub SDP Operator. Integrate with existing enterprise operation or business support systems such as IT service management (ITSM) or ticketing platforms and with endpoint solutions to ensure a “Trusted Device” as criteria for access.
