Leverage existing IAM, Zones, Policy, VR's, DHCP, QoS and IP Addressing already defined and optimized for your users, apps and services. Easily push and SINC existing and new Zones from your NGFW to any remote site or VNet / VPC that requires Next-Gen Cyber protection. An NGFW's advertised performance and capacity is reduced up to 75% when site-to-site IPSec traffic is enabled. In many cases, 75% less capacity has a direct impact to your operations and diminishes how many virtual environments, number of physical sites and how much bandwidth your organization can utilize to properly protect users, apps and services.
SINC, has immediate benefit in that it allows you to reclaim and repurpose NGFW capacity instead buying more licenses or equipment and it simplifies your operations by incrementally moving your to a SASE model. SINC easily allows you to move your existing infrastructure to a SASE model and transparently provides next generation cyber protection that organization expect and demand.
Remote worker productivity is increased when corporate office reliability, speed and protection is provided to employees and staff members. SINC leverages next generation high performance government grade encryption that is enhanced with Zero Trust Network Access or ZTNA.
SINC with SDP technology now enable IT organizations to do more with less by eliminating costly MPLS, where appropriate, and by eliminating on-premise firewalls and legacy WAN edge equipment. Our SASE Ingress Node Connector integrates with AWS VPC, Azure VNet / NSG for multi-cloud access and eliminates remote access and license cost for Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point and Fortinet remote sites and workers. Always-on protection: network transformation without backhauling provided by a trusted partner.
What is Software-defined perimeter?
Software-defined perimeter (SDP) products are a specific type of network security solution, which focus on network segmentation and user authentication. SDP itself is an architecture designed to allow access on a need-to-know basis, meaning every device and user must be verified before accessing either the network as a whole or specific systems and applications within a network. Unlike traditional network access controllers that utilize a lock and key approach, SDP segments networks by application use and analyzes user access permissions at a granular level across the network. SDP administrators can also customize and automate highly specific network security policies while enforcing them continuously.
Companies adopt SDP solutions because traditional network protection ecosystems are insufficient. If a hacker or unauthorized user obtains access to a traditional network, it’s uncertain what they can access. SDP, on the other hand, analyzes each access request at the application level, compares it to the user’s privileges, then grants or denies access. This verification process occurs continuously, increasing visibility into user behaviors and privileges.
There is some overlap between zero-trust security solutions and SDP products as some SDP solutions utilize the zero-trust approach to continuous verification, simply hiding services, applications, networks, and devices until requests are verified. Still, SDP solutions help build specific network architectures that can be used to leverage the technology and increase the efficacy of zero-trust security solutions.
