A recent press release, “DH2i®, the leading provider of multi-platform Software Defined Perimeter and Smart Availability™ software for Windows and Linux, today announced the launch of DxOdyssey™, its new network security software that dynamically deploys micro-perimeter security where needed in order to isolate services for fine-grained user access, creating a Software-Defined Perimeter (SDP). The new DH2i SDP offering gives medium and large organizations the perimeter security model needed for Zero Trust network connectivity between on-premises sites and/or multi-cloud environments. In addition, the new offering addresses customer desire for a highly scalable, self-healing networking solution that is easy to configure and manage, with a high ROI. DxOdyssey makes the application infrastructure ‘always-secure and always-on’.”
The release goes on, “Today’s medium and large organization security and network admins are well-aware of the difficulties that surround using traditional approaches such as virtual private networks (VPNs) for perimeter security to connect on-premises sites and/or multi-cloud environments. The issues include: (1) Complex configuration requiring dedicated routers, ACLs and FW policies increasing risk. (2) Users get a ‘slice of the network,’ creating a lateral network attack surface. (3) Inbound connections create attack surfaces (e.g. DDoS). (4) No ability to reduce attack surfaces with application-level segmentation. DxOdyssey cross-platform SDP software overcomes these issues without the use and security risks of conventional networking connectivity approaches.”
