Perimeter 81 Seeks to Radically Simplify Cybersecurity with New Cybersecurity Experience Platform.

What is a VP1?

Vice presidents (VP’s) are in charge of the overall business, institution, university, organization, agency or branch of government. A VP furthers the board of directors’ goals and missions by implementing new standards and strategies in the company that are in line with the board. They also face the public more often than other executives, and they do their best to uphold their company’s image.

Tel Aviv, Israel – November 16, 2021 – Perimeter 815, the Zero Trust Networking leader and creator of the world’s first Cyber Security Experience (CSX) platform, has published its Second Annual State of Cybersecurity Report.

The Decentralized Workplace & The Cyber Complexity Trap.

The study reveals that 71% of VPs and CIOs believe that the high number of cybersecurity tools they use negatively impacts their organization’s ability to detect and prevent threats.

Emerging threats in cyber security as a direct result of new trends in workforce location such as work from home because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Perimeter 81’s study looked at responses from 500 IT professionals at companies with 50 or more employees in the US. This research covered how the work from home changes have affected cybersecurity, and by extension have had an impact on IT professionals.

Amit Bareket, CEO of Perimeter 81, said,

“Hybrid and remote work are definitely here to stay, A remarkable 87% of responding companies will have hybrid workers even after Covid—and more than half of them will work remotely three to four days a week. This is a dramatic development that permanently increases the size of the network’s attack surface, and requires IT professionals to quickly seek long-term solutions.”

Sagi Gidali, CPO at Perimeter 81, says:

“As cyberattacks evolve, many vendors have been trying to solve this ever-shifting problem with more solutions and more fences. This has led to the painful and complex reality in which the average CISO is forced to manage dozens of cybersecurity solutions, which impedes their ability to secure and defend their networks. We call this problem the ‘Cyber Complexity Trap.”


Other findings from the report include:

  • 50% of companies with more than 1,000 employees use 20 or more cybersecurity tools and solutions.
  • 64% report that they experienced a significant cybersecurity incident in 2020-21, including ransomware or phishing.
  • 34% of companies have made cybersecurity a priority due to news coverage of cyber incidents
  • 59% admitted they paid a ransom to cyber thieves
  • 47% of cyberattack victims had recovery costs between $100,000 and $1 million

Sagi Gidali, CPO at Perimeter 81, continued to say:

“The clear message from IT practitioners and executives is that complexity is a killer for today’s corporate networks, which is why we developed the world’s first Cybersecurity Experience Platform or CSX. We designed the CSX platform with simplicity in mind, offering a single pane of glass for management, networking, and cybersecurity. From purchase to deployment and throughout day-to-day management, the radical simplicity of Perimeter 81 is a welcome alternative to the current norm.”

The Perimeter 81 Cybersecurity Experience Platform includes features such as a Cloud Management Console, Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), Zero Trust Agentless Access (ZTAA), Firewall as a Service (FaaS), Device Posture Check, and more.

Delivered as a single Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution, and without the need to deploy or manage any hardware, Perimeter 81 is a welcome alternative for the IT professionals and CISOs who struggle with the 20 or more Cyber Security tools they use daily to protect their networks.
