SIMPLIFYING ZERO TRUST NETWORK ACCESS ADOPTION
Your Challenge – Keeping your organization secure is your responsibility. And as your environment evolves with forces like the move to the cloud, BYOD and remote working, the security tools and architectures used to secure them must evolve too. Zero Trust must become the new standard. In plain English, this means that no one and nothing is trusted by default, even if they originate inside the network perimeter. This is something VPNs alone cannot deliver on, as they are not at all equipped to grant access on a granular, case-by-case level.
But many organizations are rightfully reluctant to dismantle their existing VPN. Undoing years of work is a costly, time consuming and disruptive move, especially when you consider that while VPNs and SDP have some overlapping functionality, they are not really designed to provide the same services. Moreover, you might find yourself in a risk-averse environment where ripping and replacing what you’ve already got isn’t an option. Many organizations simply want a safer, less aggressive way to incorporate SDP into their already existing architecture that also retains the benefits of their VPN.
THE SAFE-T SOLUTION
With Safe-T ZoneZero, you can adopt a Zero Trust Network Access architecture without getting rid of your VPN. ZoneZero enhances VPN security by adding SDP capabilities, allowing access to applications and services only after trust has been verified. Deploying Safe-T’s Secure Application Access on top of the existing VPN offers a customized and scalable zero trust solution—with all the benefits of SDP while lowering the risks involved in adopting the new technology.
