Appgate offers the most flexible deployment models for any ZTNA technology in its class. Our prospects, customers and partners will soon be able to deploy Appgate SDP on premises, in a private cloud, in a government-approved cloud, as a managed service in a government-owned location or remotely from a FedRAMP-approved environment.

  • Unified ZTNA platform for users, servers and IoT
  • Ability to control all access to all resources with a single, dynamic policy model​
  • Secure remote access for employees, systems and third-parties​
  • Simplified, consistent policy administration
