Third party contractors and others with unmanaged laptops and PCs need access to your network. Now you can fully control their access to your applications and data by setting user-level policies on which apps they connect to and how they use them, without needing to install anything on their devices.
Read about Web Application Isolation and the ZTEdge Platform in this free GigaOM report.
New distributed work environments and flexible team structures have made teaming with 3rd party contractors the norm in most organizations. To be efficient and effective, these contractors typically need to access many of the same apps and data that your employees use each day.
But unlike your employees, contractors typically aren’t using laptops provisioned and managed by your IT department. Given this, they represent a unique threat to your data as well as the security of your entire network. But since you do not “own” the devices, what can you do to protect your company from the risks of 3rd party access that is not overly complex and time consuming for your IT team?

ZTEdge Web Application Isolation (WAI) renders your public or private web and cloud apps in an isolated, secure cloud environment when contractors on unmanaged devices or employees on BYODs attempt to access them, giving you the ability to set and enforce granular app access and data use policies. You don’t need to install applications or make any configuration changes on contractors’ devices. They simply use their standard web browser and log in as normal. They get the access they need to stay productive while your IT team ensures your organization’s apps and data stay protected.
ZTEdge WAI is a simple, innovative way to protect BYOD employees and onboard 3rd party contractors in minutes while ensuring the correct data and access security controls are in place for them regardless of which SaaS or Web Apps they need to access.
ZTEdge Web Application Isolation can be used to secure exposed surfaces of web apps, protecting them from compromised devices and bad actors, while ensuring your legitimate users have full access. Hackers or infected machines that attempt to probe web apps, seeking vulnerabilities to exploit, have no visibility to page source code, developer tools or APIs. Instead, they will only see a few lines of ZTEdge Remote Browser Isolation HTML.
ZTEdge Web Application Isolation allows you to enforce important data sharing controls on unmanaged devices that access your applications. You can limit data sharing (upload/download, screen printing, clip-boarding, etc.) within your apps by users, groups, device types, locations, and more. Data loss prevention built into the solution protects enterprise assets from leaking to untrusted devices. These controls can be enforced on private corporate web apps, or on access to public SaaS applications like Salesforce, ServiceNow, Box, or Office 365.

Security is a key strategic requirement for any modern business and with business activities increasingly shifting to web apps, securing their operations is essential. Web Application Firewalls (WAFs), which were originally designed and architected in the early 90s to solve for a different set of application access scenarios than we have today, fail to address the issues as needed to secure application operations in the wilds of the internet.
Web application isolation (WAI) takes a fundamentally different approach to protecting applications and the data within them than traditional WAF solutions. To help security leaders and operators understand the role that WAI can play in securing their environments, this white paper maps WAI controls against the OWASP Top 10 Web Application Security Risks, the globally recognized framework for web application security.
