Software Defined Perimeter is an approach in network security that safeguards user access to application and information irrespective of the location, time and nature of the device used. Software Defined Perimeter follows zero trust approach, wherein the default network security posture is that of deny. Access is granted upon authenticating and authorizing both user and device. By pre-authorizing users and devices prior to making the application layer access (applications and resources), SDP protects enterprises from a range of attacks, such as denial of service, credential theft, server exploitation, connection hijacking and APT/Lateral movement. Unlike security models that work at the network layer, SDP works to the application layer. It provides granular control for secure communications directly from the user and device to the application.

Software Defined Perimeter technology is emerging as an advanced network security solution for today’s complex, interconnected world. A Software Defined Perimeter isolates network services from the internet, allowing access only after successful authentication, and restricting connections to only pre-authorized services. Network assets are hidden from unauthenticated users, leaving attackers with no visible target. Software Defined Perimeter protects organizations by substantially reducing the attack surface.
