Vidder Inc., the pioneer of PrecisionAccess that stops cyber attacks before they start, today announced that it has been recognized as a “Cool Vendor” in the Cool Vendors in Cloud Security Services, 2015 report by Gartner, Inc. 1
According to Gartner,“Attacks are increasing in frequency and sophistication… Security and risk leaders need to fully engage with the latest cloud security technology trends if they are to achieve and maintain effective security programs that balance digital business opportunities while mitigating disruptive and costly security events.” 1
“Software defined perimeter (SDP) is a key force that transforms the security industry,” said Brent Bilger, Vidder’s VP of Solutions Architecture. “Vidder PrecisionAccess, based on the SDP security model, defeats three of the most damaging categories of attacks: credential theft, server exploitation, and connection hijacking. PrecisionAccess gives enterprises a truly secure and simple way to transact and collaborate with anyone in their business ecosystem, migrate applications to the cloud, and control enterprise mobility. It is paradigm-shifting security for the extended enterprise.”
