Reading Time: 3 minutes

Perimeter 81, a secure network access solution for the modern and distributed workforce has been recognized as a Sample Vendor by Gartner Inc., a leading IT research and advisory company, in the Hype Cycle for Infrastructure Strategies, 2018, Hype Cycle for Cloud Security, 2018, and Hype Cycle for Enterprise Networking and Communications, 2018.

We feel that this recognition encourages the success we’ve had in developing the next generation of innovative network access products and Wi-Fi security solutions.

At Perimeter 81, we have eliminated the need for traditional legacy VPN technology which is hardware-based, costly and both difficult to install and manage. Instead, we offer a simple, easy-to-use and cost-effective software solution for companies of all sizes.

Our Software-Defined Perimeter (SDP) service provides greater network visibility, seamless onboarding and full integration with major cloud providers, giving companies of all industries and sizes the power to be truly mobile and enjoy complete confidence in the cloud.

In the Hype Cycle for Infrastructure Strategies, 2018 report Gartner analysts Neil MacDonald and Steve Riley describe 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 of entities, thus reducing the surface area for attack.”

They also wrote, “SDP has piqued the interest of organizations seeking an alternative to VPNs and more precise access and session control to applications located on-premises and in the cloud.” The technology “will appeal to organizations looking for innovative and secure ways to both connect and collaborate with their digital business ecosystem, remote workers and partners.”

In the Hype Cycle for Enterprise Networking and Communications, 2018, Neil Macdonald and Steve Riley write that there are several use cases that lend themselves to SDP:

  • Opening up applications and services to collaborative ecosystem applications, such as distribution channels, suppliers, contractors or retail outlets without requiring the use of a VPN or DMZ.
  • Cloaking systems on hostile networks, such as systems facing the public internet used for collaboration.
  • Carrying encryption all the way to the endpoints for scenarios where you don’t trust the carrier or cloud provider.
  • Application-specific access for IT contractors and remote or mobile employees as an alternative to VPN-based access.
  • Permitting users in potentially dangerous areas of the world to interact with applications and data in ways that reduce or eliminate risk prone to originate in those areas.
  • Secure enclaves of IoT devices if the device can support lightweight SDP agent or a virtual-appliance-based connector on the IoT network segment for connection.
  • Enabling SaaS to enterprise connectivity for workloads that require SaaS applications to interact with on-premises services.

What is the Hype Cycle?

Gartner Hype Cycles provide a graphic representation of the maturity and adoption of technologies and applications, and how they are potentially relevant to solving real business problems and exploiting new opportunities. Gartner Hype Cycle methodology gives you a view of how a technology or application will evolve over time, providing a sound source of insight to manage its deployment within the context of your specific business goals.

Additionally, we feel that the Hype Cycle for Enterprise Networking and Communications, 2018, allows I&O leaders to evolve their networks by evaluating new technologies that support digital business initiatives and new business models. However, we believe that Gartner’s Hype Cycle for Cloud Security, 2018 encompasses technologies and standards that improve the security, governance and reliability of private and public cloud computing.

Why We Feel This Recognition Is Important

As new solutions continue to rise, it’s important to have a reputable resource to gain insight on the most effective and successful solutions on the market. From our perspective, the Hype Cycle gives leaders this much-needed resource, allowing them to easily find successful infrastructure strategies, cloud security solutions and effective enterprise networking and communications applications.
