Appgate Accelerates Zero Trust Adoption


Appgate Accelerates Zero Trust Adoption

By Greg Tavarez

A little more than 80% of organizations use some form of public cloud, and yet, 60% are not confident in their ability to secure cloud access, according to a Ponemon research report. Implementing Zero Trust will cut risk with dynamic unified access policies and controls that secure user-to-resource and resource-to-resource connections.

Secure access company Appgate launched its Technology Alliance Partnership program for that reason – to help organizations unlock improved performance from their cybersecurity investments and accelerate Zero Trust security adoption.

The program enables partners to integrate with Appgate SDP through robust API integrations, clear documentation and dedicated support. Appgate SDP is a Zero Trust Network Access solution that reduces an attack surface by replacing hundreds of open ports with one protected port. Appgate SDP saw a 119% surge in digital transformation initiatives.

Appgate also announced four of the program’s featured partners, Illumio, Menlo Security, CrowdStrike and Amazon Web Services.

The combination of Appgate SDP and micro-segmentation solution Illumio Core will enable joint customers to achieve full-compass dynamic Zero Trust segmentation. Appgate SDP ensures secure access to workloads via the network perimeter, and Illumio Core micro-segments workloads within the interior. Together, the solutions improve an organization’s Zero Trust posture.

“Illumio is delighted to join forces with Appgate to deliver best-of-breed Zero Trust solutions in both categories to our customers to ensure minor breaches can’t grow to become disasters,” said John Skinner, vice president of business development at Illumio.

Appgate’s integration with CrowdStrike will help organizations reduce their attack surface and mitigate lateral movement. Appgate SDP gathers intelligence provided through CrowdStrike Falcon Zero Trust Assessment, making it possible to leverage device health or behavioral changes provided by the CrowdStrike Falcon platform to build policy controls that restrict or deny access.

Appgate SDP and the Menlo Security Cloud Platform combined will deliver a comprehensive secure access solution that safeguards internet traffic, SaaS applications and private networked resources. Enterprises shift to high-security Zero Trust framework with data and threat protection, enabling users to browse the internet and access SaaS apps and private enterprise resources safely and securely.

“Teaming with Appgate enables our joint customers to adopt a comprehensive and scalable ZTNA-based approach that improves deployment and management flexibility, while providing secure web access to application workloads across public and private clouds,” said Sanjit Shah, head of strategic alliances, Menlo Security.

Enterprises utilizing AWS security foundations augment the network security of their environments with Appgate SDP, which leverages AWS-native capabilities like tagging and auto scaling. Appgate SDP ensures that only authorized users connect to AWS and hybrid architectures with multiple encrypted tunnels.

“Our Technology Alliance Partnership program is designed to make it easier for our customers to navigate this complex landscape, simplify deployments and get the most out of their cybersecurity investments,” said Barry Field, CEO, Appgate.

Appgate and its technology partners will provide comprehensive offerings that help their customers reach Zero Trust goals with ease and speed, improving their security posture and reducing risk.
