“"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."
Kenneth Westby, Chief Strategist, Coalfire (Qualified Security Accessor)
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.
People and Process Challenges
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.
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.
*Traditional IT solutions are the use of firewall rules, NAC, VPNs, switch and router ACLs, digital certificates, cellular modems, VLANs, etc.
*FTE - hours worked by one employee on a full-time basis.
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 or device 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.
