The Challenge

Meeting Compliance Requirements is Costly and Complex

Our customers were frustrated that even PCI compliant organizations still get hacked. The problem is the cost and complexity of deploying, maintaining, and auditing traditional IT solutions across their separate enterprise, remote, and cloud infrastructures that make it difficult to ensure all controls are in place and in force. The time, expertise, and budget needed to provide connectivity, isolation, and segmentation for every system is difficult to maintain, yet still doesn't prevent hacker reconnaissance and is still spoofable. The result? Attack vectors that still exist, failed audits and possibly a breach.

The Solution

Simple Segmentation and Compliance for PCI Networks

Our customers have eliminated the complexity, attack vectors, and costs associated with traditional IT solutions by adopting an identity-centric model for PCI deployments that’s simpler and more secure. With IDN, you can deploy secure and micro-segmented networks in minutes, rather than days or weeks compared to traditional IT solutions. And even better, the cost is a fraction of those alternatives. Now you can easily meet regulatory requirements with a cost-efficient solution.

Business Impacts of Traditional IT Solutions vs Tempered Networks

Our customer was able to securely connect ~75 geographically distributed payment systems across 3 remote sites. Unlike traditional IT solutions, with Tempered Networks every PCI system is isolated across its own encrypted and segmented overlay network that can’t be violated.

Let Us Prove It

"Tempered Networks’ approach is both innovative and comprehensive with multiple deployment possibilities. In our lab testing against the relevant requirements of PCI DSS we found that the IDN platform provided very effective security and protection."

Zero Trust Policy Orchestration and Micro-Segmentation in Minutes

Tempered Networks’ scalable orchestration engine was designed to be extremely easy to use with no advanced technical training and requires little to no change to existing infrastructure. Unlike the many complex, fragile, and disruptive steps associated with traditional IT solutions, our customers eliminate complexity, cost, and attack vectors through point-and-click policy orchestration.

First, our overlay network transparently creates cryptographic machine identities for every IDN endpoint to eliminate spoofing.

Second, every protected devices' network connections are automatically authenticated and authorized between trusted devices before data transport and exchange. Our unique network-level authentication creates verifiable trust segments that can't be discovered or exploited.

Third, all connections are transparently encrypted and encapsulated enabling non-disruptive and secure traversal across any type of network - public or private. Every device can now be quickly connected and protected across any LAN or WAN, segmented across any network and made invisible to hackers.

And even better, the cost is a fraction of those alternatives. Now you can easily connect, inventory assets, and quickly mitigate attacks in real-time.

Business Impacts of Traditional IT Solutions vs Tempered Networks

Our customer was able to securely connect and isolate their SWIFT systems from the general IT network. Unlike traditional IT solutions, with Tempered Networks their SWIFT environment is isolated across its own encrypted and segmented overlay network that can’t be violated. Because of the complexity and expertise required to restrict routes, deploy nested firewall rules, and restrict port forwarding across hundreds of subnets within a multi-NAT environment, deployment time for one site was estimated to take 50 days and be disruptive. With Tempered Networks' an IDN can be deployed in less than a day and creation of an encrypted overlay network can be performed in minutes.

Let Us Prove It

"Tempered Networks gave us a fast way to deliver a simple and segmented network for our SWIFT systems, isolating them from the rest of the network. Now we have visibility and audit capability of all systems in our SWIFT environment, while meeting the security requirements with end-to-end encryption and micro-segmentation.”

Business Impacts of Traditional IT Solutions vs Tempered Networks

The results below are based on a customer networking and segmenting thousands of Industrial IoT elements across ~100 distributed and often extremely remote sites. This customer was able to complete their project on time and significantly under budget, while providing a simpler and more secure overlay network architecture.

Let Us Prove It

"A large security vendor had us convinced that we had to deploy next-gen Firewalls and VPNs in order to secure our remote weather station sites to the cloud. Because we use every type of connectivity from radio to different cellular and broadband providers, the complexity of having to manage policy across so many different networks was just too slow and costly. Plus they would all have to have a public address risking exposure.

With Tempered Networks, we were able to deploy HIPswitches in less than 15 minutes per site, with little to no changes to our existing network infrastructure. We didn't even have to set up an APN with the cell providers. All sensors and controls are now micro-segmented, inaccessible to any unauthorized system, and encrypted from site-to-private instances in our cloud."

Business Impacts of Traditional IT Solutions vs Tempered Networks

Our customer was able to connect and isolate thousands of medical devices across 4 separate campus buildings with superior mobility and none of the restrictions or complexity of using VLANs and ACLs. And unlike traditional IT solutions, with Tempered Networks, all medical devices are isolated according to device type with their own cloaked and encrypted overlay network that can’t be violated by unauthorized systems - yet has complete mobility.

Let Us Prove It

"Tempered Networks’ Identity Defined Networking allowed our team to securely connect and segment our medical devices across several hospitals.

We had estimated it would take more than a year with alternative technologies and would be very hard to maintain after the fact, which is why the project originally stalled. With Tempered it took 6 weeks, was a third of the cost, and I never have to worry that an IP Infusion pump will be accidentally exposed to the Internet again."
