Zentera Recognized as a Software-Defined Perimeter Sample Vendor

SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Zentera Systems, Inc., the leader in workload security for the multicloud, today announced that it has been recognized in four Gartner Hype Cycle reports in 2017. The report subjects include “Business Continuity Management and IT Resilience,” “Enterprise Networking and Communications,” “Cloud Security,” and “Infrastructure Strategies.” Zentera was also recently named a Cool Vendor in Gartner’s May 2017 research “Cool Vendors in Cloud Security, 2017” for its CoIP® solution.

In the Hype Cycle reports, Gartner analyst Neil MacDonald described software-defined perimeter (SDP) as “an intersection of software-defined security and software-defined networking concepts, targeting controlled access of resources to a defined community, thus reducing the surface area for attack.” He finishes by commenting that SDPs “will appeal to organizations looking for innovative and secure ways to both connect and collaborate with their digital business ecosystem.”*

Zentera’s CoIP® (Cloud over IP®) solution protects application workloads by ensuring that security policies and implementations are consistent and elastic across diverse environments. CoIP includes application interlock, which allows companies to specify authorized applications and then lock that software with a unified overlay network. This overlay network, or enclave, fulfills the purpose of a software-defined perimeter. It is decoupled from the existing underlay network and can be up and running in less than a day.

“CoIP is unique because it integrates networking with endpoint-to-endpoint security,” said Mike Loftus, Zentera’s Strategy & Marketing VP. “With security features like network encryption, micro-segmentation, application interlock, and adaptive learning, the CoIP enclave is a software-defined perimeter that can dynamically provide defense-in-depth for application workloads in any enterprise or cloud.”

Zentera’s CoIP is available through our network of solution providers. To learn about becoming a Zentera integration partner, see http://zentera.net/zentera-partners/technology-integration-partners/.
