FORT COLLINS, Co. - DH2i, a provider of multi-platform Software Defined Perimeter and Smart Availability™ software for Windows and Linux, today announced the launch of DxOdyssey, new network security software that dynamically deploys perimeter security where needed in order to isolate services for fine-grained user access, creating a Software-Defined Perimeter (SDP). The new DH2i SDP offering gives medium and large organizations the perimeter security model needed for Zero Trust network connectivity between on-premises sites and/or multi-cloud environments. In addition, the new offering addresses customer desire for a highly scalable, self-healing networking solution.
DxOdyssey SDP software delivers:
- Micro-Perimeters - Application-level micro-tunnels give network admins the ability to deep segment by application, not by network. This limits remote users to fine-grained access to specific services. There are no ACLs or FW policies to manage. Micro-perimeters eliminate lateral network attacks.
- Discreet Invisibility - The software features randomly generated non-standard UDP ports for dynamic on-demand micro-tunnel communications. Through this, servers are cloaked and secured with no open ports. This feature virtually eliminates network attack surfaces.
- Multi-Cloud Secure - The software is designed to enable secure communications "from any host, to any host, anywhere" with application-level DTLS encrypted micro tunnels and Public Key Authentication. It scales across environments to build a secure hybrid/multi-cloud distributed application infrastructure.
- Smart Availability - DxOdyssey features dynamic movement of micro-tunnel gateways and application workloads with self-healing automatic fault detection and failover. The perimeter can be orchestrated to change dynamically so that micro-tunnels and workloads always find their best execution venue (BEV).
- Lightweight software - DxOdyssey is a software-defined-perimeter solution. Just install on any host and connect. It integrates into existing network infrastructure with no network reconfiguration. There are no appliances to deploy, configure or maintain.
"A 'zero-trust' methodology assumes that assets, users and resources are untrusted. To achieve a zero-trust architecture takes an extremely focused and dedicated effort, but can strengthen most organizations' risk posture," said Eric Hanselman, chief analyst, 451 Research.
"Traditional perimeter security solutions are obsolete for the new IT reality of hybrid and multi-cloud. They weren't designed for them. They create too large of an attack surface. One need only open today's paper to confirm this fact. Customers need a new perimeter security model to support hybrid and multicloud computing," said Don Boxley, CEO and Co-Founder, DH2i.
According to 451 Research's Voice of the Enterprise: Cloud Hosting and Managed Services, Budgets and Outlook, 2017 survey of 644 enterprise IT decision-makers, 58% of organizations are pursuing a hybrid strategy involving integrated on-premises systems and off-premises cloud/hosted resources.
