Gartner Defines Benefits of Software-Defined Perimeter Around Enabling Business Agility in Upcoming Webinar

Experts From Gartner and Vidder Highlight How Organizations Can Be Agile and Adaptive in Securely Embracing Customers, Partners and Suppliers Into Digital Business Ecosystems Through the Use of SDP

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 10, 2016) - Vidder Inc., the inventor of precision application access, today announced details around an upcoming webinar, featuring lead analyst firm Gartner, entitled "How Do You Secure Enterprise Application Access to Enable Business Agility?"

According to a polling question at a recent Gartner Data Center Conference, one in every four Fortune 500 IT operations and InfoSec professionals said that information security policies and teams are slowing IT down. Business groups today demand agility to be competitive, expand existing product offerings, and build new businesses. This puts tremendous stress on IT infrastructure, networking, and enterprise IT and security teams: They are being challenged to provide faster capabilities to meet the speed of the digital business while having to protect their networks against increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks.

The webinar, featuring Neil MacDonald, Vice President and Gartner Fellow, and Brent Bilger, Vidder VP of Solutions Architecture, discusses how organizations can operate in an agile and adaptive fashion to reach out and embrace customers, partners, and suppliers into their digital business ecosystem in a secure fashion.

Webinar attendees will learn about software-defined perimeter (SDP), an advanced, application-specific access control that assesses trust before connectivity, and how it enables ecosystem collaboration. SDP enables security to become a decoupled service which organizations can deliver anytime, anywhere, based on policy.

This Vidder webinar, featuring Gartner, will be held Feb. 17 at 10 am PST/1 pm EST. Visit http://event.on24.com/r.htm?e=1125309&s=1&k=5F2679C6A7AD9E92E92218C164E8C47A today to reserve a seat.

About Vidder
Vidder brings to market the industry's first secure connectivity commercial solution based on software-defined perimeter (SDP) technology. Its flagship solution, Vidder PrecisionAccess™, stops cyberattacks by "shrinking" the perimeter, creating a new layer of defense around individual applications. The trust-before-connect architecture keeps everyone outside the new perimeter, hiding application servers from all users and devices. Only trust-verified users are allowed connectivity at the application-level. The result is a significantly reduced attack surface. Combining that with transparent multi-factor authentication executed for every user and every connection, PrecisionAccess defeats credential theft, server exploitation, man-in-the-middle, DOS, and lateral movement attacks. Offered as a service, PrecisionAccess delivers OpEx and CapEx savings and accelerates agility associated with cloud, BYOD and collaboration, while reducing risk for traditional IT. In 2015, Gartner named Vidder a Cool Vendor in Cloud Security Services. The company's headquarters are in Campbell, Calif. For more information, visit www.vidder.com.
