Secure Data Access
In addition, recent years have shown an ever-growing increase in cloud adoption by all organizations’ types. Moving application tiers to the cloud, requires rearchitecting the network and application, for example, if previously all application tiers were located on-premises, now you need to connect a cloud based application tier to application tiers located on-premises.
Such a move creates a few challenges, such as, incoming holes in the organization’s Firewall for cloud traffic, as well as the requirement for a VPN or secure connection to connect between Cloud and organization premises
Deploying Safe-T SDA (Secure Data Access) allows performing network level logical segmentation as well as connecting cloud elements to ground elements, without the need to open any ports within the perimeter firewall, close firewalls located between two network segments, while allowing secured access through the internal firewall on an outbound firewall rule.
Based on Safe-T’s patented reverse access technology, the SDA Access Controller pulls every incoming request to an outbound connection and applies policies and workflows. This design significantly reduces the attack surface since in effect all incoming ports are closed, and control is gained over the entire access lifecycle of an application, including file monitoring and permission controls. This is achieved without a single Firewall rule.
