    Unprecedented speed of deployment for secure networking and resource provisioning with Identity-Defined Networking


A Secure Networking Revolution

Make your network invisible to hackers. Our game changing solution introduces a new identity paradigm, based on the host itself, not an IP address which is easily spoofed.

Unify Networking and Security

Start from the most common denominator in networking - the device – with an ‘orchestration first’ mindset and communication based on verifiable identity.

Lower IT Capex and Opex costs

Reduce OpEx and CapEx by an order of magnitude. Accelerate time to provision and de-provision networks and resources by over 5x.

Fix the Root Defect of IP-based networks

An IP address must no longer serve as device identity in networking and security. Our unique “host identity paradigm” fixes this root defect.

Instantly Connect, Cloak, Segment, Protect, Revoke

Automatically authenticate, authorize, encrypt and enable seamless movement and failover of any connected device, machine, or groups of resources.

A game changing, yet proven, alternative to ancient IP networking

Unlike the old, traditional IP networking and SDN approaches, our next-generation network virtualization fabric-based architecture can be deployed on top of any IP network, enabling rapid provisioning and revocation of networking and security services that are managed in a highly dynamic and scalable way.

As a result of cloud computing and the imperative of digital transformation, networking and security are increasingly interrelated. Security exploits and vulnerabilities are proliferating, so security strategies must adapt to provide intrinsic, pervasive network security. Tempered has responded to this need with identity-based network overlays that leverage the Host Identity Protocol (HIP) to provide network security based on the host identity itself rather than a spoofable IP address.

Tempered Networks Answers Call to Secure Voting Systems

Each year brings new and increasingly clever exploits, including wireless, supply chain, and social engineering techniques that can bypass many of today’s mainstream perimeter security controls for infrastructure systems. Trends show that while the nature of compliance requirements have increased to meet the basic automated attacks against network systems, they typically are not designed to thwart the more advanced attacks that target infrastructure. We’re all witness to these exploits on a daily basis, and we’re all suffering the consequences. Currently, [...] Read More

Do your part and step up your cyber security hygiene

To secure your network, you have to understand your network. Hackers know this better than anyone else and will take the time dive deep into the layers of their target [...] Read More
