Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) are no longer an adequate solution for granting access to private assets such as internal applications, infrastructure, and data.
VPNs are architecturally inefficient and lack robust security capabilities required by the work-from-home norms in a post-COVID world.
Zero Trust Network Access, or ZTNA, is a promising replacement bringing a streamlined architecture, rich context awareness, and a granular, least privilege policy application.
Organizations should select a Private Access ZTNA solution that can bring not only the compelling architectural benefits inherent to ZTNA, but also the heightened security posture assessment level, which is available only when ZTNA is coupled with the larger framework of an SSE platform.
