(businesspress24) - WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwired) -- 02/01/17 -- , a pioneer in software defined perimeters (SDP) and digital risk reduction solutions, today announced availability of a Software Defined Perimeter (SDP) engineered to eliminate distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks.

The announcement follows the Cloud Security Alliance''s (CSA) successful formation of a new focused on addressing how SDP can solve security, compliance and administration challenges for IaaS. The CSA is a nonprofit organization promoting the use of cloud security best practices.

SDP is emerging as a key component in a new security and risk reduction paradigm and is particularly effective in thwarting DDoS attacks. The SDP specification uses a framework of security controls designed to mitigate network-based attacks on Internet-accessible applications.

Waverley Labs worked closely with the CSA Software Defined Perimeter Working Group that developed the SDP specification and reference architecture for SDPs adopted by the Cloud Security Alliance and its members, and released

DDoS attacks, particularly on government agencies, continue to increase in size and frequency," said Luciano "J.R." Santos, Executive Vice President of Research, Cloud Security Alliance. "As one of the founding partners in the development of SDP, Waverley Labs has been at the forefront in advancing SDP solutions to protect critical applications and infrastructure and stop DDoS attacks."

The primary effect of the SDP is that it allows good packets and connections while dropping bad packets and preventing bad connections. In the event of a DDoS attack, SDP proactively blocks malicious traffic, automates the ability to immediately block and stop the traffic from reaching the protected applications and services and creating a dynamically provisioned perimeter for clouds and datacenter infrastructures.

"SDP is particularly relevant for stopping DDoS attacks while not disrupting IT operations and network access since all legitimate users continue to be authenticated and allowed access," said Juanita Koilpillai, CEO of Waverley Labs and author of the SDP specification. "SDP combines and integrates on-device authentication, identity-based access, and dynamically provisioned connectivity to hide critical applications from hackers. In addition, SDP can be used in government applications, such as enabling secure access to FedRAMP-certified cloud networks, as well as enterprise applications such as enabling secure mobile phone access to public clouds."

Waverley Labs . It incorporates industry input and lessons learned from successful commercial implementations by , Mazda, and , and federal agencies . SDPs continue to be with an estimated 10 billion attempts to date -- all unsuccessful.
