The Advantages of Zero-Trust Network Access (ZTNA) — Free Whitepaper Download!
Why zero-trust network access may be a better choice than traditional VPNs
For decades, VPNs have been the de facto method of accessing corporate networks, but they have some serious issues, particularly in terms of security
The shift to widespread telework has put a spotlight on the limitations of traditional virtual private network (VPN) solutions for connecting the workforce to network resources. Check out this short point-of-view paper to find out:
- Three key drawbacks of VPNs
- Why ZTNA is a better option
- Five advantages of ZTNA solutions
The recent rise in remote working has put a spotlight on the limitations of virtual private networks (VPNs). Although traditional VPNs have been a mainstay for decades, many organizations are now looking for alternatives that better meet their plans and objectives. With better security, more granular control, and a better user experience, zero-trust network access (ZTNA) can be a smarter choice for securely connecting a remote workforce.
More organizations are recognizing the need to transition away from traditional VPNs. ZTNA is proving to be a better solution, easier to use with the added benefit of adding application security to a remote access solution. Organizations should be careful to select ZTNA solutions that integrate with their existing infrastructure. Building a zero- trust network access solution requires a variety of components, which may include a client, a proxy, authentication, and security that can be used to apply ZTNA to remote users, no matter where they’re located.
Zero Trust Access
It’s no longer safe to assume that just because a device is connected to the network, it should have access to everything. Fortinet Zero Trust Access continually verifies who and what is using your resources. IoT and endpoint devices are identified and secured, while IT teams gain full visibility into and control over what’s connected to your network.
Universal Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA)
ZTNA is a capability within Zero Trust Access (ZTA) that controls access to applications. It extends the principles of ZTA to verify users and devices before every application session. ZTNA confirms that they meet the organization’s policy to access that application.
