We believe that networking and security must be unified in order to be effective, simpler and faster to deploy. The only way to accomplish this is to fix the root defect of TCP/IP, where an IP address functions as a device identity. A fundamental change is required.
Tempered Networks is pioneering the Identity-Defined Network market and driving a new identity paradigm, one that is based on the host itself not a spoofable IP address. Today, almost all networking and security policies use the IP address as identity in some form, which continues to fail every organization. An IP address was never meant to serve as identity, only as a locator which is why…
…nearly any connected machine will respond to any request
…hackers can discover almost any device on the Internet even if the resource sits behind a next-gen firewall, VPN, router, load-balancer or switch
…hackers can easily move laterally inside a network — even traversing VLAN segmentation
…IP resource mobility is constrained, so provisioning times takes weeks or months
Time for a new, simpler, and flexible secure networking paradigm
We believe that any organization, big or small, should be able to instantly connect, cloak, encrypt, move, revoke and failover any networked resource, anytime, anywhere and be confident that their connected systems are safe. And, it shouldn’t cost a fortune or take weeks or months.
Pipedream? No. It’s called the Identity-Defined Network and it’s never been possible, until now.
Our proven technology was under development and put into production for over 10 years at a Fortune 50 company—just recently released commercially for the broader market. We have customers worldwide, across all industries, with ‘well-tempered’ networks today.
