Why choose SDP?

Reasons to Setup a Software Defined Perimeter

SDP offers a simplified, multi-layered security framework to secure your network infrastructure whether it's cloud-native or on-premise.

SDP does not share network connection details like DNS information, IP address etc.
Grants least access privilege to the resource as SDP works on a need-to-know framework.
Software Defined Perimeter is designed to be location and infrastructure agnostic.
It can be deployed anywhere to protect on-premise resources and cloud-based resources.
SDP implemented network verifies devices as well as users before authorizing access.
Ideal for remote connections as it can connect with users beyond the physical network perimeter.
Core Benefits

SETUP SDP WTH ONECLICK ACCESS

How to Setup Secure OneClick Access with UTunnel

01

Deploy a UTunnel server on your VPC or on-premise network and subscribe for user licenses as needed.

02

Add a OneClick Application on the VPN server to access your HTTP, HTTPS, SSH or RDP resources.

03

Invite the users/teams for whom you want to provide secure access to your OneClick Applications.

04

Setup policies to fine-tune access to the app with location, OS or time-based access control.

USE CASES

Where UTunnel’s SDP Solution Can be Put to Action

UTunnel’s versatile Software Defined Perimeter solution is crafted for companies to seamlessly secure resources on their business network infrastructure in a matter of minutes.

A Smart Alternative to VPN

Modern-day organizations have their majority of data resources housed on cloud infrastructure, rendering in traditional VPN solutions inefficient.

UTunnel provides a peerless SDP solution that could seamlessly protect both on-premise and cloud-based infrastructure by securing the resources at the application level.

Secure Remote & Cloud Access

SDP solutions provide safe access to remotely based infrastructure and cloud-based infrastructure after authenticating the user’s identity. Granting the least access to users based on a need-to-know basis greaty reduces chances of data breaches caused by privileged access.

When an SDP-secured remote/cloud-based resource is accessed, all other assets and resources except the accessed asset are hidden from public view to avoid any kind of brute-force attack.

Mergers & Acquisitions

Another use case for Software Defined Perimeter is the securing of IT & corporate resources during a merger and acquisition scenario. Securing the corporate network and cloud resources during the due diligence stage is very crucial for the smooth processing of organizational proceedings. Failure to gather secure access to network infrastructure and cloud resources can lead to data breaches and infringements.

The SDP-secured network ensures that user identity is validated through water-tight access policies while providing standardized security to all entities and access is granted only to those who comply with the control policies. SDP helps the M&A integration processes to save a considerable amount of time.

Third-Party Access

Studies have shown that majority of the data breaches are caused by giving too much privileged access to third parties. To eliminate this risk, organizations can use SDP-secured infrastructure to enable secure remote access to third parties with the least privileged access.

Limiting third-party access to authorized applications ensures that all other applications on the network remain invisible, thereby effectively reducing unwanted lateral movement within the network.

SDP - Frequently Asked Questions

Software Defined Perimeter or SDP is a security technique powered by Zero Trust technology that allows access to resources based on identity-based access control policies. It secures the network infrastructure by creating a virtual boundary around the resources.
What is the difference between SDP and VPN?
Software Defined Perimeter allow network access on the principle of least privilege access after authenticating the user and device. However, compared to SDP, VPN enables all the connected users to access the network.
An SDP-secured infrastructure allows users to access network resources only after authenticating the user’s identity and assessing pre-defined access policies. Once the user is authenticated, SDP assigns the user an individual network connection to access the particular application rather than giving access to the whole network.
Both Software Defined Perimeter and Zero Trust Network Access are based on the policy of Zero Trust, and the terms are often used interchangeably. SDP is the security approach that enables Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) by creating a virtual boundary around network resources.
