Impulse, the leader in context-aware network security and orchestration, announced availability of a new cloud services offering. SafeConnect SDP extends network access control capabilities to address the challenge of securing Public Wi-Fi and Mobile 4G-5G connected device access to private and public cloud application and data resources from outside the traditional corporate network perimeter.
SafeConnect Software-Defined Perimeter (SDP) “hides” protected applications from the network and only allows application access after the user and device have been successfully authorized, validated, and security compliance verified.

“The security landscape has definitely changed and requires a new approach to address the unrelenting high-profile denial of service attacks and data breaches that are plaguing our industry”, comments Ben Fox, Impulse Product Manager, “our SafeConnect SDP offering represents an…
