Zero-Trust Network Access

 Securely connect users and devices with dynamic, role-based Zero-Trust network access solutions.

Zero-Trust Network Access

Zero-Trust network access (ZTNA) focuses on controlling user and device access to applications. Traditionally, perimeter security assumed network users were trustworthy. However, cyber-attacks are growing and becoming more sophisticated, the number of devices, including IoT and smart devices, has rocketed, IT Teams are finding it difficult to control that perimeter. Attacks and malware which exploit user credentials can quickly spread inside the network, causing untold harm.

The ZTNA model extends the principles of Zero-Trust access (ZTA) to continuosly verify users and devices before every application session, confirming that they meet the organisation’s policy to access that application.

To protect networks and applications, network administrators must apply a Zero-Trust access approach and provide least-access privileges. Implementing this Zero-Trust access requires strong authentication capabilities, powerful network access control technologies, and pervasive application access controls.

The key elements of Zero-Trust Network Access 

The Zero-Trust approach assumes every device is infected and every user is capable of compromising the network, whether by accident or not. To adopt this strategy, the IT department should follow a three-step approach.

Discover and identify devices on the network

Smart devices such as laptops, phones and wearables, network devices, IoT devices may all have a legitimate reason to access the network, but the IT department still needs full visibility to continuously monitor them to ensure they are not compromised.

Protect assets on and off the network

With increasing mobility, endpoint security is more important than ever. A zero-trust model improves visibility through frequent vulnerability scanning, patching and web filtering. Improved visibility means IT teams can securely monitor assets whether they are on or off the network.

Know every user that accesses your network

It is not enough to know who is on your network, it's also important to know why and to limit their access according to their roles. In an education setting, for example, students and teachers will be able to access different applications and data. ZTNA allows for multi-factor authentication, and controls access based on user roles including where a user can access from. IT staff can grant and remove access centrally and continuously monitor and identify any areas of concern.
