AppGate (formerly part of Cyxtera Cybersecurity) is an innovative cybersecurity tool that utilizes a Software-Defined Perimeter (SDP) to apply Zero Trust principles for the protection of applications, devices and data. AppGate is unique in its capabilities to provide:
- Full identity-based authentication for traffic (rather than just IP address-based) incorporating user-definable criteria
- Entitlements that adjust dynamically as risk scores change
- True least privilege access with smaller potential attack surface than most gateway tools
AppGate applies these protections across on-premises, private cloud and/or public cloud resources using the same interface.
