BlackRidge products include hardware and software gateways and software endpoints that implement BlackRidge Transport Access Control (TAC) with First Packet Authentication™. BlackRidge gateways and endpoints perform identity insertion, identity resolution and policy enforcement on network sessions. Identity insertion is the process that associates a network connection request with a user or device identity and inserts identity tokens into TCP sessions. Identity resolution is the reverse process by which a BlackRidge gateway or endpoint associates and authenticates an identity token with a user or device identity. Policy enforcement implements the provisioned security policy — forward, redirect, or discard — for the connection request to a protected resource.
Pulse SDP is a Zero Trust secure access architecture for today’s modern application infrastructure. It enables direct, secure access to individual applications and requires users and their devices to be verified before access is allowed. The result is an enhanced security profile, better device compliance, and an improved user experience while defending against modern security threats and lateral malware spread.
