Appgate Technology Alliance Partner Program Helps Organizations Embrace Zero Trust

Appgate has launched its Technology Alliance Partnership program and four of the program’s featured partners are: Illumio, Menlo Security, CrowdStrike, and Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Appgate’s Technology Alliance Partner Program is designed to help organizations get the most out of their cybersecurity investments and accelerate the adoption of Zero Trust security.

This growing ecosystem of partners demonstrates Appgate’s vision and commitment to creating product integrations that enable its customers to automate cybersecurity processes, optimize operations, reduce risk and improve security. user experience.

“While many organizations have embraced the principles of Zero Trust security, the reality is that their goals cannot be achieved with a single product, vendor or platform. Our Technology Alliance Partnership program is designed to make it easier for our customers to navigate this complex landscape, simplify deployments, and get the most out of their cybersecurity investments,” said Barry Field, CEO of Appgate.

“We are excited to bring more value to our customers through our partnerships with Illumio, Menlo Security, CrowdStrike and AWS,” continued Field.

Zero trust requires that all users, devices, and workloads, whether inside or outside an organization’s network, be authenticated, authorized, and validated at all times before being granted access to applications and data.

Appgate’s Technology Alliance Partnership Program enables partners to integrate with the company’s Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) solution, Appgate SDP, through robust API integrations, clear documentation, and dedicated support.

Together, Appgate and its technology partners deliver comprehensive offerings that help customers achieve their zero trust goals easily and quickly:

Illumio

The combination of Appgate SDP and Illumio Core, a micro-segmentation solution, enables common customers to achieve full zero-trust dynamic segmentation. Appgate SDP ensures secure access to workloads across the network perimeter (north-south traffic) by creating masked, granular, and dynamic user-to-workload access controls.

Illumio Core micro-segments indoor workloads (east-west traffic) to eliminate excessive workload-to-workload interconnectivity. When co-deployed and integrated together, these solutions improve any organization’s zero-trust posture.

“Security teams are turning to zero-trust strategies to build resiliency in their hybrid IT environments, but are finding that no single vendor or solution can achieve their goals on their own. An ecosystem-based approach is needed” , said John Skinner, vice president of business development at Illumination.

“Zero Trust segmentation and ZTNA are important pillars of any Zero Trust strategy. Illumio is thrilled to partner with Appgate to provide our customers with the best zero-trust solutions in both categories to ensure that minor breaches cannot turn into disasters,” continued Skinner.

Menlo Security

The combination of Appgate SDP and Menlo Security Cloud Platform delivers a secure access solution that protects all Internet traffic, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications, and private networked resources.

With this integration, enterprises can move to a zero-trust framework with industry-leading data and threat protection, allowing users to browse the Internet and access SaaS applications and private enterprise resources with complete peace of mind. security.

“The move towards hybrid workforces and public and private cloud infrastructures is forcing organizations to deploy a new approach to ensure secure access to web and SaaS applications and confidential corporate data without impacting user experience or productivity. said Sanjit Shah, Head of Strategic Alliances, Menlo Security.

“Associating with Appgate enables our joint customers to adopt a complete and scalable ZTNA-based approach that improves deployment and management flexibility, while providing secure web access to application workloads on public clouds and using Menlo’s Cloud Security Platform with Isolation Core and Zero Trust Private access to hybrid resources and IT infrastructure through Appgate SDP,” Shah continued.

CrowdStrike

Appgate’s integration with CrowdStrike helps organizations reduce their attack surface and mitigate lateral movement. Appgate SDP brings together intelligence provided by CrowdStrike Falcon Zero Trust Assessment (ZTA) to assess user, device, and workload risk postures at authentication and on an ongoing basis.

This dynamic feature allows device health or behavioral changes provided by the CrowdStrike Falcon platform to be leveraged to create policy controls that restrict or deny access, preventing lateral movement across the network.

AWS

Organizations using the strong security foundations provided by AWS can increase the network security of their environments with Appgate SDP, which leverages native AWS features such as tagging and autoscaling to provide access and enterprise-grade scaling.

Appgate SDP ensures that only authorized users connect to AWS and hybrid architectures with multiple encrypted tunnels. Appgate SDP is available on AWS Marketplace.
