ZTNA assumes that every user and device is suspect and that risks exist inside and outside the network.

The Benefits of ZTNA

Several factors have combined to change the fundamental nature of network access. The increased use of cloud solutions, in addition to permanently remote or hybrid work environments and the ever-changing nature of cyber threats, contribute to the demand for a new approach to secure connectivity. If these conditions sound familiar, it may be time for your company to implement zero-trust network access (ZTNA).

In the past, security teams could categorize a device’s or user’s trustworthiness based on whether they were inside or outside of the network perimeter. As the boundary has evaporated, implicit trust is no longer a viable approach. Access privileges granted too broadly can be disastrous if unauthorized parties can intercept credentials and legacy security tools haven’t been designed for a perimeter-free network.

The Fundamental Concept of Zero Trust: While its implementation is more complex, the essential foundation of ZTNA is conceptually simple: assume that every device and every user is a threat. In practical application, every user and device are verified and authenticated. In other words, nothing and nobody is trusted. The zero-trust approach assumes that cyber threats are inside and outside the network.

Transitioning to ZTNA can be challenging, even as companies agree that the approach is vital to developing a secure access model.

Companies are compelled to implement a relentless approach to network access. Users and devices are verified before every application is used. Multi-factor authentication is used, and users are given stringent access to resources based on their job role.

Choosing a ZTNA Solution: There are a variety of solutions on the market for zero-trust security approaches, and universal ZTNA may be a superior choice for supporting geographically dispersed users and accelerating digital transformation efforts. Here are a few of the benefits of a universal ZTNA option:

Consistent Work Experience: A cloud-only ZTNA solution may break down in a work environment with locally hosted applications. Your ZTNA solution should offer the same policies and network performance no matter where employees work.

Ease the Transition Between VPN and ZTNA: If your company currently utilizes VPNs, it’s a good idea to check to see if the provider also offers universal ZTNA.

Integrate With SD-WAN: A universal ZTNA solution can incorporate software-defined wide area networking to offer a single operating system for networking that includes application access and traffic prioritization.

As changes to your workplace and the acceleration of a digital transformation strategy continue to change network access for your company, it may be time to consider ZTNA for a consistent and secure networking approach.

Sports Production Services
Safari’s work at All-Star game was terrific. Our client had a last-minute ask that my team was not aware of until the day a representative arrived on site. Their techs didn’t have a solid plan on what their needs were but Safari’s complete knowledge of networks and sharp inquiries into what our client was trying to do literally saved the day in getting their project off the ground. They could NOT have pulled off what they needed without Safari’s involvement.

I would highly recommend Safari Events to any vendor in need of voice and data services

I just wanted to put on record my thanks for your help. The connectivity you always provide is the best we get at any tournament worldwide and is always stable. When we had a minor problem this year, you kindly changed things for us several times until, with your help, I was able to identify that it was actually a problem at our base back home! Without your help, I wouldn't have been able to do that. Many thanks, See you next time!
