We are pleased to announce that Netskope Private Access (NPA) is now available to test drive, meaning you can experience a truly modern zero trust network access (ZTNA) solution firsthand with no commitment and no software to download or install.
Selecting and implementing the right ZTNA solution is a crucial part of the SASE journey, and our goal is to make your process of evaluating Netskope Private Access as easy as possible. As a cloud-delivered ZTNA offering, NPA seamlessly connects users everywhere to private applications hosted in data centers or public cloud environments.
VPN replacement and so much more
As Gartner notes, ZTNA is one of the fastest-growing segments in security—no surprise, given ZTNA is a logical first step toward a complete zero trust-focused security program. Widespread embrace of hybrid work has also prompted many organizations to look to ZTNA as a replacement for legacy virtual private networks (VPN). As organizations continue to shift to the cloud, they’ve learned some hard lessons about legacy VPN. Gartner suggests at least 70% of new remote access deployments will be served predominantly by ZTNA instead of VPN by 2025.
In our ongoing series of articles about ZTNA, we emphasize that not all ZTNA solutions are created equal. We can agree that as digital transformation and cloud-first strategies take hold in business, legacy access methods are no longer up to the task of enabling secure access for cloud environments. But your ZTNA solution also has to be much more than “just” a VPN replacement.
Netskope Private Access can connect users and their devices to necessary resources directly and securely, governing access by continuously evaluating the context of who the user is, whether they are authorized to access the specific resources, what device they’re using, the security posture of the device, and a number of other contextual factors. NPA also integrates with leading identity access management providers to define granular access policies, both for managed and unmanaged devices, that enable teams to continuously manage risk instead of having to manually adjust policies for every potential interaction with data and applications.
Another key element of NPA is application discovery. Simply put: you need to have the clearest picture possible of what applications your users most frequently need access to, and where those applications are hosted. Netskope provides detailed discovery information to help make defining application-specific policies easy, as well as API tools that automate how administrative application settings are applied and maintained—saving you time and money.
