Remote Access (ZTNA)

The ZTNA is based on the Zero Trust concept, which aims to protect the organizations’ information systems and data on the premise that any person or device can potentially be a threat to the IS. This involves verifying both the identities of persons accessing the IS and the devices used to access it, whether they are located outside or inside the organization’s network, and limiting the rights/authorizations of all users to only those resources/applications that are required in the context and for the duration of their missions. This approach is completely different from the previous approach to IS security, which assumed that users and devices located within an organization’s network were trustworthy because they had already entered the organization’s perimeter defenses.

The implementation of a Zero Trust approach is based on several good practices:

Least privilege principle

Allow the user to access only the resources and applications he needs by tracing all actions.

Control of devices accessing the Information System

Check the compliance and integrity of the devices connecting to the IS

Multi-factor authentication (MFA)

Enhance security via complex authentication mechanisms that are transparent to the user
