Vidder’s PrecisionAccess in ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards (Video)

PrecisionAccess, the industry’s first service based on a breakthrough security architecture called the Software Defined Perimeter, has been nominated to compete in the 2017 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards program.

Vidder is changing how modern day enterprises approach security in the increasingly untrusted and diverse IT landscape.

The company’s PrecisionAccess™ solution provides trusted and unified access control across internal networks, clouds, and external users.

Security is enhanced by continually ensuring that only trusted devices used by strongly authenticated users can ever see and access trusted applications.

Cost and complexity are reduced via a single layer of software-defined enforcement for IT, and a transparent experience for users.

Vidder customers include enterprises and government entities who are solving difficult security problems while gaining agility and cutting costs.

How It Works

PrecisionAccess screens both user and device to ensure they’re trusted before connecting them to protected applications — in three simple steps:

  1. Isolate the application so it’s invisible to everyone on the untrusted network
  2. Verify user authenticity and authorization, and device trustworthiness
  3. Connect the authorized user and trusted device to only the protected applications

After the device is connected, a continual trust assessment of the device is performed to ensure it maintains the same level of trust.

Managed by a team of experienced security and networking executives, Vidder is a privately-held corporation headquartered in Campbell, CA.

Proven Technology

PrecisionAccess is based on a new security model, the Software Defined Perimeter (SDP), promoted by the Cloud Security Alliance.
