Vidder Selected by Verizon Enterprise Solutions for New Software Defined Perimeter Managed Service Offering
Vidder (News - Alert), Inc., a market leader in Trusted
Access Control, today announced that its technology is a core part

Vidder technology provisions connectivity at the application layer, as
opposed to using traditional network-based access controls.Servers are
hidden from users until trust is established. Attack surfaces are
significantly reduced with a single layer of enforcement deployed
seamlessly across physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures.
Managed security services for global enterprises need to merge with
network services to address the demands of customized, highly complex
and costly communications and application systems. While the adoption of
mobile devices and public clouds has become the norm for today's
enterprises, they bring new demands not addressed by traditional
Verizon's new SDP service, powered by Vidder technology, helps
enterprises prevent credential theft, malware propagation and server
exploitation attacks across data center and cloud environments.
Additionally, enterprises benefit from the agility and economics of
complementary network services from Verizon, such as SD-WAN and Secure
Cloud Interconnect (SCI).
"Today's digital, mobile, and virtual business applications continue to
enhance collaboration and productivity, but they also increase potential
exposure to security threats with each new endpoint," said Jeffrey
Schweitzer, chief innovation architect, Business Products & New Business
Innovation for Verizon. "SDP helps reduce these risks by making critical
applications and resources invisible to everyone until the end users and
devices are authenticated and authorized."
"The integration of Vidder technology with Verizon's managed security
and networking services creates a unified networking and security
solution for global enterprises," said Vidder CEO Mark Hoover (News - Alert). "The
Verizon offering will help enterprises to increase agility, manage costs
and contain risks."
The Cloud Security Alliance tested Vidder's SDP software over the course
of five public and private hackathons. It survived 15 billion hacks from
104 different countries and there were no breaches at any level.
Vidder is changing how modern day enterprises approach security in the
increasingly untrusted and diverse IT landscape. The company's
breakthrough PrecisionAccess™ solution provides trusted and unified
access control across internal networks, clouds, and external
users. Security is enhanced by continually ensuring that only trusted
devices used by strongly authenticated users can ever see and access
enterprise and applications. Cost and complexity are reduced via a
single layer of software-defined enforcement for IT, and a transparent
experience for users. Vidder's customers include enterprises and
government entities which are solving difficult security problems while
gaining agility and cutting costs. For more information, visit www.vidder.com.
