More than ever, employees and contractors are using mobile devices to work remotely. That’s why validating access to your network is more important than ever.

An unidentified, would-be user seeking access to your organization’s network is an opportunity to protect your system and its digital assets – or make them vulnerable. Well-informed choices to grant, challenge or deny requests for access are the foundation of rigorous cybersecurity. Yet one bad decision among thousands of requests can have catastrophic consequences. And when it comes to validating requests for access, no single metric is foolproof. Multifactor approaches, however, reliably segment valid users from bad actors – and identify requests requiring further scrutiny. A holistic view emerges when simultaneously considering the identities of users who are seeking access, their locations and other relevant data points. By segmenting and securing network access across multiple locations, system administrators are able to tie off loopholes to access while eliminating assumptions from the process of validation.

  • 2019: It's Time for a VPN Alternative

    2019 is the year we must all accept it: it's time for a VPN replacement. Jason Garbis explains why a Software-Defined Perimeter is the Zero-Trust cybersecurity solution every enterprise needs. Today’s network landscape is one of incredible complexity with distributed applications, people, and data. Companies have taken the standard method of protection, the trusted private network, and applied hundreds or thousands of VPN and firewall rules with complex topologies to manage the chaos. Our expanding cloud and mobile ecosystems have made the perimeter both porous and irrelevant. Download to learn more. Download Now

  • Is Your VPN Complexity Slowing Progress?

    VPN policy management is complex and time consuming, often requiring a significant number of resources to manage. Empower your organization to efficiently move forward by adopting a Software-Defined Perimeter. When administrators set policies for their VPNs, they end up in one of two problematic situations: the policies are set for broad access to the network, or they are too restrictive and prohibit some users from gaining access to resources they actually need.
