Zero Trust Network Access: Accelerating Zero Trust Maturity with nZTA
Covid made the hypothetical necessity of IT risk planning a reality. Many organizations responded to the immediate need for remote workforces by adding more VPN licenses. But while adding more VPN capacity solved the problem of resource access, it also led to network bottlenecks and application latencies.
As we have come out of the fog of reactivity, several new IT risk assumptions have emerged:
- Disruptions on a massive scale can happen
- Breaches will happen
- Mobile access and edge computing are here to stay
As organizations assess security risks with these assumptions, they’re fortifying their zero trust policies from every angle: users, devices, networks, and applications. Ivanti Neurons for Zero Trust Access (nZTA) helps accelerate time to value by quickly enforcing granular security access policies grounded in zero trust principles.
nZTA was designed with transformation – not replacement – as a core tenet. Using the same client customers for on-premises, remote access, and now hybrid access, we are helping to accelerate zero trust access initiatives with a unique approach.
Benefits of nZTA include:
Relieving network traffic congestion and data toll charges
With nZTA, your data never goes through our platform, reducing the strain on corporate bandwidth and eliminating (ingress?) data charges on SWGs and CASBs.
Improving business productivity and agility
User experience improves with direct-to-app access which removes traffic hair-pinning. And IT can implement new services securely, and make granular policy changes faster with nZTA. And with a single client for on-premises, remote, and direct to cloud access, accelerating your zero trust efforts becomes frictionless.
Securing multi-cloud, zero trust access everywhere
nZTA reduces the attack surface whether the apps are on-premises or in the cloud, and wherever the user and device are located.
Greater choice and flexibility: Granular policies and gateway placement
You place gateways where you want. nZTA supports five devices with each named user and a flexible number of gateways to support your policies.
Acting on visibility and analytics
Actionable analytics help you identify and respond to user and entity behavior anomalies (UEBA) that identify only those behaviors that are out of the norm for investigation and response.
At Ivanti, we’re looking forward to helping you actuate your SASE and SDP initiatives with a zero trust foundation. To learn more about nZTA, see ivanti.com/products/zero-trust-access.
