Third-Party Remote Access

Zero trust VPN alternative

The Demise of VPN

Traditional VPNs are no longer sufficient to provide secure access for an increasingly mobile workforce that needs access to enterprise applications and resources located both on-premises and in the cloud.

End-Point Management

VPN client software is notorious for interoperability issues, end-user frustration, and complex management and configuration – placing undue burdens on IT to meet today’s mobile workforce needs.

Monolithic Infrastructure

Big iron VPNs create hairpins and bottlenecks for a growing mobile workforce that needs access to applications deployed on-premise and in public and private clouds.

Outdated Security Models

Legacy VPNs allow full network-level access rather than least privilege access, creating security vulnerabilities due to attack, lateral movement and data leakage.

Clientless Access

Traditional VPN clients often require troubleshooting for specific OS and browser versions, imposing a heavy burden on both users and IT admins. In contrast, Zentry provides simplified, OS-agnostic clientless access through any HTML5 Web browser. No client to install, manage or explain to end users.

Frictionless Onboarding

End-users onboard and begin work sooner, IT workload is reduced, and the solution scales smoothly, and in some cases, managed devices can become unnecessary for employees. 

Reduced Attack Surface

In contrast to network-level VPNs, Zentry WebAccess brokers connections at the application level to reduce the overall attack surface. Users are granted least privileged access based on their roles, attributes and usage patterns, and all access is encrypted using highly efficient cryptographic technologies.

Eliminates Data Leakage

Web services broker enables clientless HTML5 access over TLS from any modern browser, and prevents data from leaving the network, traversing the internet or residing on end-user devices. Webify desktops (RDP and VNC), SSH and Telnet, as well as legacy applications that require specific client software.

Adaptive Policies

The Zentry policy engine examines authorization context and policy definitions to generate least privilege access profiles that keep applications, resources and corporate data safe. Extensible and based on open frameworks, the Zentry policy engine supports REST APIs for interfacing with external data.

High-Performance Architecture

Distributed lightweight resource connectors deploy seamlessly on premise or in the cloud, linking up with high-performance access gateways (application proxy) to auto-scale bandwidth, accelerate TLS encryption, and deliver a superior user experience. Easily adopt new features as they become available.
