Cyxtera Integrates Zero-Trust Security into Global Data Center Footprint

MIAMI – December 13, 2018 – Cyxtera Technologies, the secure infrastructure company, today announced the integration of Appgate SDP, its software-defined perimeter solution, across its 50+ best-in-class data centers to deliver zero-trust capabilities to customers. Appgate SDP leverages micro-segmentation to apply the principle of least-privileged access to the network, which reduces the attack surface. Providing an on-demand, free edition of Appgate SDP to colocation customers further builds on Cyxtera’s vision of delivering secure, cyber-resilient infrastructure for modern enterprises.

Immediately available in Cyxtera data centers, Appgate SDP enables customers to remotely access their colocation environment securely. It provides a unified control plane for secure connections across on-premises, colocation and public cloud environments by eliminating common issues associated with legacy VPNS: over-privileged access and a cumbersome user experience.

“Network security embedded into the colocation infrastructure is a game-changer,” said Manuel D. Medina, CEO of Cyxtera. “The physical security of a data center, while important, leaves customers open to cyber-attack via the network, which is a more pervasive threat. We founded Cyxtera to offer modern enterprises the option of getting secure infrastructure at the start of their colocation experience, not as an afterthought.”


Gartner
recently identified software-defined perimeter as one of the top technologies for information security. Further, they reported that “by 2021, 60% of enterprises will phase out network VPNs for digital business communications in favor of software-defined perimeters.”

Appgate SDP replaces static, outdated security methods with a dynamic solution that provides fine-grained access to assure that individuals only connect to the network resources they need to do their job. Whether enterprises are still building out a colocation network or operating at production, securing the infrastructure with Appgate can help to eliminate risks of misconfiguration, project slow-down or an outage.

Advantages of Appgate SDP include:

  • Identity-centric: Designed around the user, not the IP address.
  • Zero Trust model: Leverages micro-segmentation to apply the principle of least-privileged access to the network.
  • Built like cloud, for cloud: Engineered to operate natively in cloud networks, Appgate is completely distributed and as scalable as the internet itself.
  • Free 10-user license pack available for Cyxtera colocation customers, enabling secure remote access for operations staff and administrators”
