The World’s First Cybersecurity Experience (CSX) Platform

Perimeter 81 has developed a radically simple cybersecurity solution that solves the complexity trap while protecting the new world with the first ever Cybersecurity Experience Platform. Its CSX Platform is a holistic, cloud-based solution that allows the enterprise to ditch legacy hardware and fully embrace the agility of the modern era. Whether you need secure networking for five users or 50,000, the company has designed the CSX to be simple, instant, and powerful.

The new CSX Platform is built around the four superpowers of Radically Simple Cybersecurity: Instant Deployment, Unified Management, Full Visibility, and Integrated Security. As a holistic and cloud-based solution, Perimeter 81 now allows organizations of all industries and sizes to support the business and employee of the future, while granting IT professionals and teams with the robust tools they need to safely manage it all in one place.

Perimeter 81’s Four CSX Superpowers

Instant Deployment: In just a few clicks, Perimeter 81 allows you to purchase, provision, and enable secure zero-trust access on-prem, in the cloud, and anywhere in between. Perimeter 81’s quickly scalable microservice architecture and transparent pricing allows you to easily grow with your business and plan for the future. And if you have any questions, its hands-on, 24/7 Customer Success engineers are always available to help.

Unified Management: Effortlessly manage and onboard network users, instantly deploy secure cloud gateways, create multi-regional networks, and install cross-platform applications across all endpoints within a single dashboard.

Full Visibility: Effectively monitor network health, view employee resource access, integrate with leading SIEM providers, and identify any suspicious activity with a unified view of your network security.

Integrated Security: Avoid the complexity of using dozens of cybersecurity solutions with a single well-designed platform that makes it easy to configure your network, implement security policies, detect active attacks, and defend against data breaches.

Leveraging Path-Breaking Cybersecurity Experience Solutions

Secure Access Service Edge (SASE): Revolutionize the way you secure the data, resources, and users in your network with SASE. Perimeter 81’s growing Secure Access Service Edge platform combines network and security functionality into one scalable, cost-efficient, and cloud-based service. It is a blueprint for better business security, and involves the combination of software-defined edge networking, user-focused authentication and access control and seamless integration across the cloud. SASE architecture enables businesses to implement different key cloud capabilities which will provide an agile, holistic, adaptive, self-updating security posture. This provides them with an efficient and easily adaptable tool for their business needs, no matter where they are located.

Zero Trust Network Access: Picking only one encryption solution can cause issues when resources are located in various cloud environments and users connect with their preferred device and location. With Perimeter 81 you can deploy multiple protocols at once, depending on the relevant environment and connection. When their companies rely heavily on the cloud, and encourage remote work and BYOD, a primary concern for IT is complexity and reduced visibility into network activity and access. Perimeter 81 integrates with all your various solutions and services for total network awareness.

Firewall as a Service: Legacy firewalls can protect the company’s internal perimeter, but they can’t ensure its safety across hybrid clouds. Perimeter 81’s Firewall as a Service ensures that only authorized users can connect to your cloud resources. As companies onboard new users and resources, IT must work to fit existing security practices to them. Firewall as a Service changes this dynamic by allowing IT to customize, reprioritize and apply policies with little more than a click. To ensure total privacy and compliance, the company’s solution provides client and endpoint visibility, identity and access management, OS and application-level security, and mutual TLS encryption.
