Products Private Access for ZTNA

Private Access for Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA)

Fast, secure, and direct access to private applications hosted anywhere. Reduce risk, simplify IT and optimize the user experience.
About Private Access

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

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.

Features and
   benefits

NPA enhances security posture with the Zero Trust principles, speeds up cloud migration, simplifies IT infrastructure, and enables secure remote access for users anywhere.

Secure Access to Private Applications

Protect data and resources with application-level access control based on user identity, and contexts 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). Brower Access provides support for clientless access for 3rd party access or employee 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 3rd 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.

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, private data center, or 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.

Use cases
Netskope Private Access (for ZTNA)
   use cases
Remote Access VPN Alternative

Provide application-specific access for authenticated and authorized users. NPA provides context-aware, risk-based, least privilege access to applications and not the underlying network, minimizing unauthorized lateral movement and reducing the risks and exposure associated with remote access VPN.

3rd Party Access / BYOD

Safely provision access to unmanaged devices, or 3rd party users such as contractors, suppliers, and partners without VPN, DMZ nor exposing resources to the public internet.

With Browser Access, NPA supports agentless deployment for 3rd 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

Provide day-one access to internal resources without the complexity of combining networks, configuring site-to-site VPN and firewall rules.

DevOps Access

NPA enables policy-based, native access to dynamic workloads hosted anywhere, in private data centers or public cloud environments.  Securely enable privileged access to workload via Secure Shell (SSH) and remote desktop protocol (RDP) without exposing sensitive resources to the public internet.

Simplify operation and boost DevOp productivity by eliminating the need for site-to-site tunnels and virtualized VPN in the public cloud and  no more backhauling traffic through data centers.

Zero Trust Security Transformation

For organizations embracing zero trust security strategies, ZTNA is prioritized as a critical first step. Built with zero trust principles, NPA enables users anywhere with aero trust Access to private resources everywhere. NPA continuously monitors contextual, adaptive risk optimized access. Reduce overall attack surface area by eliminating the exposure of protocols and services to the public internet.
