Zero Trust Network Access

As your organization adopts cloud services, it’s increasingly important to evolve access to your key enterprise applications – no matter where they are. Moving beyond legacy VPNs for remote network access, to a modern, application-specific model is essential as your organization uses applications in your data centers and public clouds.

Benefits of a ZTNA architecture

Netskope Private Access provides you with:

 

  • Zero trust network access to private applications: Protect data and resources with application-level access control based on user identity and device security posture.
  • Seamless and direct access to public cloud(s): Connect remote users directly to applications in public cloud environments – no need to hairpin through corporate infrastructure.
  • Protection for private applications: Ensure that applications hosted in public and private cloud are never exposed to the Internet. Avoid the brand damage, fines, and remediation costs associated with private application breaches.
  • Simplified IT operations: Modernize network architecture and increase security for Internet use using a scalable, cloud-based platform that unifies ZTNA, with cloud security (CASB) and web security (SWG).
Zero Trust Network Access: secure application access from anywhere

Applications of Netskope’s ZTNA

ZTNA creates a new security framework for connecting users, data, and applications even when they aren’t on-site using the organization’s network infrastructure. This situation is becoming all the more common due to the rise of remote work and adoption of the cloud. ZTNA provides a security structure that guards your most valuable assets by granting the least amount of privileges as possible to each individual user.

That’s why we’ve created a ZTNA that provides both full visibility and control over users, applications (managed and unmanaged), and devices that have access to a growing number of systems and services. Netskope’s zero trust model creates secure environments for all kinds of previously difficult or risky situations, including:

01

Securing remote user access to the network

Netskope’s zero trust capabilities provide application access for authenticated and authorized users. By eliminating implied trust privileges our platform reduces the risks and exposure associated with traditional remote access VPN. These users will have access to everything they will need and nothing that they don’t, all while consistently reaffirming their identities to prevent unauthorized access.

02

Enable 3rd Party Access and BYOD policies

Sometimes it’s necessary to grant access to individuals or devices outside of the immediate enterprise’s network. Using ZTNA, administrators can safely provision access to contractors, suppliers, and other 3rd party users using the browser access (clientless) to web applications. Additionally, ZTNA creates safeguards to allow network access to personal devices while protecting permissions to more sensitive systems and information.

03

Allows for smoother cloud migrations

Whether it’s today, tomorrow, or next year, we are all moving to the cloud. ZTNA makes these migrations simpler by creating direct, secure access to all kinds of cloud applications and infrastructures. Utilizing the streamlined nature of the cloud, ZTNA allows users to set up and deploy in minutes, creating seamless direct access to resources hosted in public cloud environments, without the complex network routing.

04

Simpler merger and acquisition integration

Mergers are complex, but combining systems and providing access doesn’t have to be. ZTNA provides approved users with day-one access to internal resources without the complexity of combining networks. This way you can get up and running with new employees and processes faster than ever before.

05

Streamlined DevOps access

In today’s world, developers can’t always be expected to work on-site. ZTNA provides secure native access to resources regardless where they are hosted to data centers and Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).

06

Aids the security transformation journey

Everything about the way we do business is changing at an ever more rapid pace, necessitating the need for new security and networking technologies. ZTNA applies zero trust principles to application and network access, therefore reducing the overall attack surface area by eliminating the exposure of protocols and services to the public internet.
