The advantages of deploying Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA)

How to provide a crucial security fix for unprecedented times.

 

The global pandemic prompted a seismic shift for organizations that resulted in distributed workforces. This demanded that IT teams reevaluate their connectivity practices and revisit their approaches to security. The Virtual Private Network (VPN) and remote access environments that were designed to support a small percentage of an organization’s workforce quickly became stressed overnight.

 

As an answer to this growing challenge, organizations responded by deploying Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) tools to augment, or in some places completely replace, existing VPN environments. In their early stages, these solutions addressed the scalability and accessibility issues presented by VPNs, however, they lacked security. 

 

Despite their shortcomings, early-stage ZTNA solutions provided a critical band-aid during unprecedented times. Fast-forward to today, and the technology has become a staple of the Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) that provides secure access to internal applications. Next-gen ZTNA tools now offer reliable availability and performance without ignoring critical security gaps or increasing operational costs.

In this white paper, we take a deep dive in reviewing the critical considerations for including ZTNA in your IT architecture and answer essential questions to set organizations on an intentional path to ZTNA adoption. Download the white paper to learn:
