Enterprise Application Access

Application Access Redefined: Secure, Simple, Fast

Enterprise Application Access is a unique cloud architecture that closes all inbound firewall ports, while ensuring that only authorized users and devices have access to the internal applications they need, and not the entire network. No one can access applications directly because they are hidden from the Internet and public exposure. Enterprise Application Access integrates data path protection, single sign-on, identity access, application security, and management visibility and control into a single service.

It can be deployed in minutes through a unified portal with a single point of control, in any network environment, and at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions. The result is a secure-access delivery model that enables a zero CapEx, low OpEx model for critical workloads deployed in any environment.

Features

null

Deliver Access to All Internal Applications

Provide seamless access for all enterprise applications — regardless of origin — delivered by vendors such as Atlassian, Microsoft, SAP, and Oracle. Or, integrate with an existing single sign-on (SSO) solution like Okta.

null

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA/2FA)

Enable an additional layer of security by authenticating users with MFA across email, SMS, or TOTP — or integrate with an existing 2FA provider like Duo Security.

null

Strong Encryption

All access is encrypted using AES 256 over TLS 1.2, ensuring that no data is exposed to prying eyes on the network.

null

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA/2FA)

Enable an additional layer of security by authenticating users with MFA across email, SMS, or TOTP — or integrate with an existing 2FA provider like Duo Security.

null

Unified Auditing and Reporting Capabilities

Capture all users’ IP addresses, usernames, and actions taken, as well as geolocation for easy compliance reporting.

null

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA/2FA)

Enable an additional layer of security by authenticating users with MFA across email, SMS, or TOTP — or integrate with an existing 2FA provider like Duo Security.

null

Simple User Management Portal

Easily enable access to applications — whether deployed in private clouds, e.g., VMware or OpenStack; public clouds, e.g., Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Compute Engine, or IBM Cloud (Softlayer); or on-premises — in minutes. No additional hardware or software required.

Full-Featured, Server Load Balancing Capabilities

Balance traffic load across a group of servers. Configure to monitor the health of each application server and apply a variety of load balancing policies.

“When an employee is logged in and goes to lunch, the protection is still there. It remains active 24 hours per day. If a machine becomes compromised, we can isolate the risk to only that device. We use a lot of access control so that groups of users can only see limited URLs or RDP sessions.”

How Does Enterprise Application Access Work?

An Enterprise Application Access connector connects to your application server, then dials out to the Enterprise Application Access service on TCP port 443, commonly open for outbound communication on most companies’ firewalls. No additional hardware or software is required.

The service is architected based on three primary components:

  • Data Edge: Provides the data plane between the user and the application, as well as data security, application performance, and optimization components.
  • Management Edge: Provides management, logging, reporting, and configuration capabilities. The management and data edges are based on a secure, multi-tenant architecture. In addition to the multi-tenant data cloud, you have the option to select a dedicated single-tenant data cloud that can be configured to only process a single user’s traffic.
  • Enterprise Connectors: Your users connect to the Enterprise Application Access single sign-on service through a URL entered into their browser. Users simply provide their credentials to gain access to your applications. You also have the option to integrate with existing SSO solutions.

Enterprise Application Access works with all applications — legacy on-premises, IaaS, and SaaS.

Use Cases

null

VPN Elimination

Traditional VPNs are complex to manage and expensive to scale, and increase the risk of unauthorized access to data across the corporate network. Eliminate VPN and transition to an adaptive and identity-aware security model to safeguard access and reduce the enterprise attack surface.

Redefine Application Access to Simplify Mergers and Acquisitions

Efficient integration and swift return on investment (ROI) are imperative on the heels of an acquisition or merger. IT must simplify enterprise application access, reducing complexity and enabling productivity — positioning the business for M&A success.

Provide Simple, Safe Contractor Access to Internal Applications

Increasingly, companies provide third parties — such as contractors, suppliers, and partners — access to internal applications that sit behind the firewall. A new model is needed to secure access for this distinct user group that resides outside of the enterprise’s traditional zone of control.

null

Deliver Fast and Secure Enterprise Applications

Modern enterprise users and applications are distributed. But access models haven’t kept up — backhauling traffic to the corporate network degrades application performance and user experience, drives up overhead and associated costs, and increases risk. An updated application access and security strategy is critical.

Enable Single Sign-On Across All Application Types

A seamless sign-on experience across on-premises, IaaS, and SaaS applications is vital given the growing and increasingly distributed population of corporate applications. Unified access improves an enterprise’s security posture, reduces IT costs, frees up IT resources, and improves user productivity.

Secure Access to Enterprise Applications in the Cloud

Enterprise applications have transitioned to the cloud. But there are risks as workloads move outside the traditional sphere of control. How can IT provide access without exposing the applications to the dangers of the public Internet? An evolved access model is needed.
