Software-defined perimeter (SDP) specialist Meta Networks on Monday launched a formal partner program.
SDP is an emerging area in IT security, with analysts at Gartner last year identifying it as one of the top 10 security approaches to keep an eye on. Generally replacing virtual private networks, an SDP uses software-defined policies to put users at the center of the network security model, identifying those users in policies and determining what resources they can access.
Meta Networks calls its partner program the Meta NaaS Channel Program, and it is designed for managed security service providers, VARs, VADs, integrators and IT service providers. Current Microsoft channel partners are a key potential source of partners, said Director of Sales Royi Barnea, due to the tight integration of Meta’s products with Microsoft infrastructure software and services.
