Define: Software Defined Perimeter?
Software Defined Perimeter (SDP), also called a “Black Cloud“, is an approach to computer security which evolved from the work done at the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) under the Global Information Grid (GIG) Black Core Network initiative around 2007. Software-defined perimeter (SDP) framework was developed by the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) to control access to resources based on identity. Connectivity in a Software Defined Perimeter is based on a need-to-know model, in which device posture and identity are verified before access to application infrastructure is granted. Application infrastructure is effectively “black”, without visible DNS information or IP addresses. The inventors of these systems claim that a Software Defined Perimeter mitigates the most common network-based attacks, including: server scanning, denial of service, SQL injection, operating system and application vulnerability exploits, man-in-the-middle, pass-the-hash, pass-the-ticket, and other attacks by unauthorized users.

Safe-T enables enterprises to run a secure, zero trust digital business by significantly reducing attack surface of the network and applications. Safe-T’s Software-Defined Access (using SDP infrastructure) limits exposure and access to the cloud and data centers, delivering the right data to authorized entities only.
Safe-T allows visibility and availability of applications, services and networks only after assessing trust, based on policies for authorized user, location & application. Safe-T enhances operational productivity, efficiency, security, and compliance by protecting organizations from data exfiltration, leakage, malware and ransomware..
InstaSafe is a security solutions organisation that has been redefining cloud based security by introducing disruptive and cost effective solutions that seek to alter the cybersecurity spectrum altogether. InstaSafe was founded in 2012 by cybersecurity experts Sandip Kumar Panda, Biju George, and Prashanth Guruswamy.
As a Gartner recognised Zero Trust Network Access solutions provider, InstaSafe seeks to leverage ZTNA based concepts to ensure a seamless, secure internet experience for all users in an organisation, irrespective of the device or location from which they use these resources. InstaSafe uses the neoteric conception of Software Defined Perimeters (SDP) to deploy a network centric zero trust architecture that leverages the cloud to provide unprecedented security to its users, along with granular level network access control.
As one of the pioneering players in the SDP industry, InstaSafe has made an impression among organisations looking to switch to security setups that aid their migration to the cloud. Unlike appliance-based solutions, InstaSafe offers a hardware-free, Zero configuration, Self-service style, Fully redundant Security-as-a-Service, which could be deployed in minutes with comprehensive reporting.By effectively eliminating the need for on-premise hardware appliances, InstaSafe provides a viable, scalable, simpler, and more secure alternative to existing legacy based security setups..
Luminate enables IT teams to create Zero Trust Application Access architecture through connecting any user from any device to any corporate application while seamlessly reducing attack surface, increasing visibility into application usage and improving corporate compliance. They secure access to any corporate resource or application, hosted on any datacenter, whether on the cloud or on-premises.
They leverage the Software-Defined Perimeter principles: resources are always cloaked from public discovery, access to specific participants is restricted via trust broker, users are authenticated and authorized prior to accessing any application. Luminate Secure Access Cloud is agentless, it is deployed in less than 5 minutes and, once in place, it provides both full visibility of users’ actions when accessing corporate resources, as well as complete governance and risk mitigation of these resources..
Vidder’s Trusted Access Control technology mitigates network-based attacks by making servers invisible to everyone except authorized users. Vidder offers managed services that protect high-value networked assets.
Vidder’s unique solution is based on a new standard called the Software-Defined Perimeter (SDP) that is being developed by the Cloud Security Alliance. It was incorporated in 2009 and is based in Campbell, California..
