About Private Access
orange plus

Cloud-based Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA)

Netskope Private Access (NPA) connects users anywhere to private resources hosted on-prem or in the cloud, ensuring fast and direct application connectivity and superior user experience.

 

With the Private Access architecture, private resources remain hidden and shielded from discovery and attacks. Authenticated users gain secure direct access to authorized applications with end-to-end traffic encryption.

Private Access, An integral part of Netskope Security Service Edge (SSE)

Netskope Private Access, a ZTNA solution, enhances security posture, speeds up cloud migration, simplifies IT infrastructure, and enables organizations to move toward the zero trust security model for secure remote access.

Extend Data Protection to Private Access

Optimize access while protecting data. NPA detects data usage, activities, and behavior anomalies (UEBA), enforces advanced DLP rules and policies, and applies adaptive access policies based on user risks.

Netskope Private Access (for ZTNA)
   features and benefits

Secure Access to Private Applications

Protect data and resources with application-level access control based on user identity and context such as device security posture, user behavior, and risk score.

Netskope Private Access has broad application support. It supports client-initiated traffic using both TCP and UDP protocols on almost all associated ports, thus enabling access to web applications and non-web/thick clients (e.g. SSH, RDP, Microsoft Windows Active Directory). Browser Access provides support for clientless access for third-party access or employee “bring your own device” (BYOD).

Superior User Experience

Bypass complex network routing and boost workers’ productivity with easy, fast, and frictionless connectivity to applications regardless of where the resources are hosted, without the frustration of using multiple VPN gateways and associated latency or broken apps and other problems.

The user-to-application traffic is optimally routed through the Netskope NewEdge security private cloud, with its global coverage, premium transit selection, and extensive peering to cloud providers, to deliver a superior user experience and fast application performance.

Smooth Migration to Cloud

Direct & Fast connectivity to Public Cloud Environments and Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).

Eliminate traffic backhauling as well as complex network routing, and provide secure connectivity to applications hosted in the public cloud environments using Netskope NewEdge.

Enhance Security Posture

NPA enhances your organization’s security posture with the zero trust security model. Unlike remote access VPN, NPA provides contextual, risk-optimized application access, not network access. With the “inside-out” connectivity architecture, NPA minimizes overall attack surface area by eliminating the exposure of protocols and services to the public internet. Private resources are not visible on the public internet and are shielded from attackers.

The granular access control policy incorporates user identification, UEBA, and device posture. Integration with third-party identity providers and Microsoft Active Directory provides user context. Real-time monitoring of user behavior and device security posture provides additional context for risk-optimized access control.

Protect Sensitive Data

The goal of a zero trust architecture is to eliminate implicit trust and protect data assets. To protect data, a ZTNA solution should detect data usage, activities, and behavior anomalies (UEBA), enforce advanced DLP rules and policies, and apply adaptive access policy based on user security risks.

Netskope extends controls over data collaborated on during private access sessions with inline DLP policies, providing visibility of sensitive data from a single console.

NPA provides options that help organizations protect their valuable and proprietary data. The DLP controls prevent data exfiltration to third-party managed and unmanaged personal devices, including mobile devices. NPA leverages the Netskope DLP engine for centralized controls. The data is classified once, with a single policy enacted across all vectors, with incidents managed on a single pane of glass.

Additionally, organizations can leverage advanced UEBA to gain real-time context and to minimize insider risk.

Simplify Operations

Netskope Security Cloud platform unifies ZTNA, CASB, SWG, and Cloud Firewall into an integrated SSE solution with one client, one policy engine, and a single management console, providing clear visibility, consistent policy enforcement, and ease of management.

NPA is network-agnostic and can deploy as an overlay on top of your existing network infrastructure, allowing organizations to reap the benefits of ZTNA immediately. A modern alternative to remote access VPN, NPA dynamically connects your users anywhere to your resources everywhere, on-premises, in a private data center, or in public cloud environments.

With application discovery and API for automation, it further simplifies the operations around private application management, user access provisioning, and ongoing maintenance.

Third-Party Access / BYOD

Safely provision access to unmanaged devices, or third-party users such as contractors, suppliers, and partners without VPN, DMZ, or exposing resources to the public internet.

With Browser Access, NPA supports agentless deployment for third-party users and employee BYOD.

Cloud Migration

NPA provides seamless, direct access to private applications and resources hosted in the public cloud environments, bypassing legacy network-based security and access methods. By eliminating complex network routing and backhauling traffic through data centers, NPA simplifies IT operations and helps accelerate organizations’ journey to the cloud.

A cloud-delivered ZTNA, NPA infrastructure is powered by Netskope NewEdge, a high-performance, highly available security private cloud that is extensively peered with cloud service providers. With global data centers in 50+ regions, customers gain global access from anywhere, enabling a low latency on-ramp for knowledge workers from anywhere.

M&A Integration
