SEATTLE, JANUARY 8, 2018Tempered Networks, Inc., the pioneer of Identity-Defined Networking (IDN), today announced that SC Media (formerly SC Magazine), has named Tempered Networks to its  Hall of Fame 2017. After three consecutive years appearing on SC Media’s Industry Innovator for security infrastructure list, Tempered Networks is one of only two companies named by SC Media editors to the Innovation Hall of Fame.

The Hall of Fame inductees represent the best of the best innovators as seen by editors at SC Media. In addition to continued technological innovation as the selection criteria, the judges also take into consideration how the company is run and how it takes its product to market.

“As one of only two companies named to this year’s Innovation Hall of Fame, we are excited to have received this recognition,” said Jeff Hussey, President and CEO of Tempered Networks. “Our belief is that simplicity and security must go hand-in-hand in order for your network to make you more productive and not hinder your business. With Tempered Networks you don’t have to compromise and cope with complex, insecure and expensive networks. Our customers not only get their lives back from the never ending grind of networking chaos, but also have peace-of-mind that their assets are protected.”

Tempered Networks’ IDN solution offers customers a secure and mobile software-defined network architecture, differentiated by its point-and-click orchestration engine that significantly reduces networking complexity. Organizations can achieve the benefits of SDN and micro-segmentation--only promised by other SDN offerings--because it is inherently secure, affords IP resource mobility, and is easy to manage. Even staff without advanced IT skills can deploy and maintain an IDN solution.

Tempered Networks gives customers the ability to easily connect, segment, and manage their networked resources at scale, including IoT endpoints, addressing an expansive and growing set of initiatives where rapid reliable access to resources, network predictability, and unbreakable security are primary goals. The company’s solution overcomes the complexity caused by multi-NAT, dynamic IP addressing, IP conflicts, and unwieldy inbound firewall rules that often create impassable networking barriers. Here are some of the common initiatives IDN addresses:

Simple Micro-segmentation Across the LAN, WAN and Cloud
Achieve unbreakable micro-segmentation for any IP resource, even across separate networks.

Instant Machine Connectivity and Access Control
Establish peer-to-peer connectivity for any private or unrouteable device--regardless of location or network.

Instant Revocation of Untrusted or Compromised Devices
Revoke machine trust or quarantine devices and network segments to eliminate or minimize negative impact.

Secure Enclaves for Data Protection and Compliance
Secure sensitive data within private workgroups and facilitate compliance for PCI DSS, SWIFT, NERC-CIP, NIST, etc., while optimizing security.

Unconstrained Data and Resource Mobility
Achieve full datacenter redundancy with real-time failover. Rapidly migrate resources between physical and virtual environments.

Sub-second Machine and Workload Failover
Redirect or failover traffic for a single device or an entire datacenter.
