"We're thrilled to recognize next-generation innovation in the information security marketplace, and that's why Vidder has earned this award," said Pierluigi Paganini, Editor-in-Chief, Cyber Defense Magazine. "Some of the best InfoSec defenses come from these kinds of forward thinking players who think outside the box."

The "trust-before-connect" access control model delivered by Vidder PrecisionAccess is a paradigm shift: Only cryptographically proven users operating from trusted devices can see and access the applications. The result is enterprise IT gains complete control over who connects to what in a new enterprise. This enterprise is shaped by an ever changing mix of internal and public cloud applications with users inside and outside the corporate network. PrecisionAccess significantly reduces an enterprise's risk to network-based attacks by defeating credential theft, server exploitation, denial-of-service, and connection hijacking. In doing so, it enables accelerated business velocity as enterprises securely execute on cloud migration strategies and collaborate in new ways with customers, partners, suppliers, vendors, contractors, and field workforces. 

"We are honored to be recognized as the most innovative access control solution of the year at RSA," said Mark Hoover, Vidder CEO. "But we're not the only innovators. Our solution's application-specific granularity and built-in multifactor authentication enhance security in a manner that traverses the traditional network boundaries, leading to innovation among our customers. I learn something new every time a customer talks to me about how they plan to leverage our solution."

PrecisionAccess deployments that best exemplify customer innovation include securing and enhancing global supply chain operations, protecting critical internal applications, migration of applications to the cloud, collaboration on complex multi-vendor design projects, facilitating due diligence activities, and many more.
