Juanita Koilpillai is Founder & CEO of Waverley Labs, a pioneer in software defined perimeters (SDP) and digital risk reduction solutions. She has 30 years’ experience researching and developing systems in computer security, network management and real-time distributed software. She leads the open source software-defined perimeter (SDP) effort for ‘black’ apps in the cloud with the Cloud Security Alliance and is an active contributor to NIST leading the creation of a security risk index system for moving apps to the cloud (NIST 500-299). She was a key member of FEMA’s Enterprise Security Management Team and served as Principle Investigator for several DoD initiatives. She co-founded CyberWolf – an advanced automated attack warning system deployed by government and later acquired by Symantec.

Waverley Labs, a pioneer in Software Defined Perimeters (SDP) and digital risk reduction solutions, will demonstrate a new SDP solution featuring integrated credential and identity access management developed for the Department of Homeland Security(DHS).

Software Defined Perimeters (SDPs) are emerging as a key component in a new security paradigm for protecting critical applications and infrastructure. The primary effect of the SDP is that it transforms the application infrastructure into an effectively invisible or “black cloud” environment that shows no domain name system (DNS) information or IP addresses.

Waverley Labs worked closely with the Cloud Security Alliance to develop the commercial SDP specification and has since delivered the industry’s first open source SDP as part of an award by the DHS to create new tools to defend against large and sophisticated Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.
