Traditional IT network security assumes that everything inside the network is trusted and only applies security measures to protect its network from outside access. But once an attacker finds a “hole” to enter an internal network, they gain full access to said network and easily access secure data resources.
With the sky-high costs of data breaches (averaging at over $3 million), organizations should adopt a network security model that best protects their sensitive data and access touchpoints. It’s time to adopt Primary Guard’s Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) model, the ideal end-to-end protective strategy for your organization’s online environment.
There a numerous challenges associated with using the ‘castle-and-moat’ (traditional model) network security system, which include but are not limited to the following:
Common pitfalls of network-centric approaches:
Easy to deploy and manage as an automated, cloud-delivered service that scales.
A user- and application-centric approach to application access. Bring security and policy close to the user to eliminate unnecessary backhaul.
A proxy-based architecture designed to handle encrypted traffic at scale for threat protection and data loss prevention.
Performs various checks to the access requests such as the identity of the user, presence of MFA during the authentication process, source country of the user, status/posture of the device such as whether an anti-virus has been enabled or full disk encryption is applied, etc. to help reduce the risk of data loss and system compromise from your internal network.
Helps protect user activity by isolating browser activity from corporate devices, block malicious websites with malware and phishing elements before an incident occurs, prevents employees accessing unapproved web applications and much more.
Log every access request and policy change across all your corporate applications for auditing. Audit logs can then be pushed to an enterprise SIEM tool for fine-grained control over your whole system.
Protect your internal applications without deploying costly VPN appliances and reduce total cost of ownership. Authentication processes are moved to the cloud and can be done quickly from anywhere in the world.
Say goodbye to traditional username and password authentication. You can now integrate with your organization’s identity provider such as Azure Active Directory, G Suite, GitHub, LinkedIn, or any identity provider that utilizes SAML standard. No additional user credentials to manage means less hassle.
Need protection for your API endpoint? Service Tokens can be generated to authenticate your bots and scripts to the API. Protect and prevent your API endpoint from getting compromised and misused by attackers.
