“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” It’s a timeless proverb that can be cost-effectively applied to many aspects of our consumerist culture.
However, there are some things in this world where it pays to be a little more proactive—one of which is perimeter security for your organization.
Any IT pro worth his or her weight in floppy disks knows locking down an organization’s network needs to be at the top of the priority list in this day and age. The list of threats facing organizations is rapidly growing, and it is absolutely imperative to evolve your security infrastructure to keep up with threats.
What does this evolution actually look like though?
At DH2i, we believe it means heading as fast as you can towards a zero-trust security framework and adopting a solution that is purposefully designed for the hybrid and multi-cloud world that we live in.
Our Software Defined Perimeter (SDP) product, DxOdyssey, is unVPN® technology that enables organizations to resolve key pain points and vulnerabilities of traditional perimeter security solutions.
Management Pain and Infrastructure Requirements
A big part of the step towards zero-trust security means simplifying management and eliminating unnecessary points of failure.
DxOdyssey’s installation and configuration process is measured in minutes and can easily unify the security and management of Windows and Linux machines and mobile devices.
In addition—as a software-defined technology—DxOdyssey completely removes the need for any of the physical infrastructure required for traditional approaches like VPNs.
Excessive Network Access
Another massive vulnerability of VPNs is the simple fact that they unlock access to the entire network for all users. DxOdyssey mitigates this by managing network access more safely and granularly—only allowing access to relevant apps and services required by any given user.
That’s just a brief preview of what DxOdyssey does for an environment. If you want to learn more, you can get registered for a free demo with a product expert at https://dh2i.com/demo/.
Regardless of what solution you land on, the most important thing is to be PROACTIVE. It costs a whole lot less to proactively update your security infrastructure than be victimized by a cyber attack.
