Confidently authenticating identity and enforcing granular least privilege access controls and policies is a core tenet of the Zero Trust model. But with employees as well as 3rd parties needing secure access to a proliferating set of apps, databases, and corporate resources, keeping up with who is really who, and what they can access at any given time is an increasingly unmanageable challenge for security teams. This is even more pronounced in today’s distributed workforce, with users often requiring both on premises and remote access from a range of different devices, including their own personal devices.
Specialty identity vendors that have cropped up to address this complex challenge, but the fees they demand don’t fit within tight IT budgets.
SSO for SaaS Apps
With or Without PW
ZTEdge’s built-in IAM capabilities, which serve as the core authentication platform for ZTEdge security services, can also act as an organization’s universal directory, or broker authentication requests with Active Directory or other SAML-supported directories. Single sign-on (SSO) is available for SaaS applications.
A wide range of modern access management and authentication methods are available, and multi factor authentication (MFA) can be added to secure accounts against privileged access abuse, credential theft and fraud. Using these security controls closes security gaps, preventing hackers from being able to gain access to the corporate network or move through it laterally, thus minimizing the risk of a data breach, and keeping sensitive data secure.
Best of all, IAM comes as a standard component of ZTEdge, so you can avoid costly identity cloud vendor contracts.
ZTEdge is a Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) platform that cuts complexity, reduces cyber-risk, and improves performance, at half the cost of other Zero Trust solutions.
