Overall Satisfaction with AppGate SDP

We have been piloting AppGate SDP as part of our ZeroTrust strategy, which incorporates the concept of Software Defined Perimeter. We want to ensure that if you are not entitled to a resource, you are not able to see it on the network, and if you are entitled, you can use it at will. We found the tool does this well for network and layer seven use cases.
  • Software-Defined perimeter
  • Hide resources to non-authorized/authenticated users.
  • Scalability - If there are too many resources per user, the solution cannot be utilized (upwards of 5K per user).
  • It could be more dynamic, like how it stores user ACLs.
  • We are achieving our goals with this tool by hiding resources behind it.
  • It is a new model that requires a different thought process for many in network operations.
AppGate SDP was selected before I arrived at the project; I do not have details of the product selection process firsthand.
The company has been supportive overall of our needs and desired features. I have not personally called the support services, but I've heard no direct complaints either.

Would you buy Appgate SDP again?


I would recommend AppGate SDP to anyone that has fairly clear cut use cases for systems with user access with less than 5K resources per user. We found it works well in those cases and fully as advertised. The application can easily hide applications and resources from unauthorized access and is a reliable tool in your ZeroTrust arsenal.
