Unlike many of today's point products, Block Armour’s Secure Shield architecture delivers holistic Zero Trust security for today’s hybrid and distributed IT environment. This powered by Software Defined Perimeter (SDP) architecture & private permissioned Blockchain technology.
Having evolved from the work done at the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), SDP architecture renders application infrastructure effectively ‘invisible’. The SDP toolkit includes a controller with a policy engine which authenticates and authorizes all endpoints trying to access a particular infrastructure before fine-grained access to that application infrastructure is granted.
Blockchain technology is an immutable time-stamped series of records that is cryptographically secure, distributed and managed by a cluster of nodes. The three pillars of Blockchain technology – Decentralization, Transparency and Immutability – deliver a scalable, resilient and robust backend system along with a new breed of tools for digital identity, authentication and authorization of users as well as connected devices in today’s always-on always connected world.
Block Armour’s Zero Trust system, when delivered together using SDP architecture and Blockchain technology, is able to deliver fine-grained micro-segmented network access to business applications, irrespective of whether they are hosted on-premises or across one or multiple Clouds. The solution not only secures the server but also provides end to end security by enhancing the user authentication and encrypting the communication between the user and server, delivering a truly holistic cybersecurity solution to protect today's hybrid and distributed IT systems from next-gen threats.
