ZTNA Adoption Increasing, Now Easier to Implement

Security and IT leaders sometimes feel caught in the middle of a tug-of-war. Their organization pulls them in one direction — to securely enable the business — and provide workers with a friction-free connection from nearly anywhere on the planet. And at the same time, the organization also pulls these leaders in the opposite direction by demanding increasingly robust cybersecurity.

Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) ends the fight by accomplishing both crucial objectives. This explains why according to Gartner, by 2025, at least 70% of new remote access deployments will be served predominantly by ZTNA as opposed to VPN services, up from less than 10% at the end of 2021.

Now, businesses of all sizes have new ways to implement leading and proven zero trust network access within their environment.

BlackBerry ZTNA Solution Now Available on AWS Marketplace

To remove barriers of adopting ZTNA and make its far-reaching benefits available to more organizations, BlackBerry just announced that CylanceGATEWAY™, the company’s AI-powered ZTNA solution, is available on AWS Marketplace. This is a curated digital catalog with thousands of software listings from independent software vendors that makes it easy to find, test, buy, and deploy software on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

“We’re confident that expanding the availability of CylanceGATEWAY to AWS Marketplace will enable more businesses to improve their security programs by adopting a Zero Trust security model,” says Nathan Jenniges, Vice President, Cybersecurity Product Strategy at BlackBerry. “Our solution offers organizations of any size the ability to enable their users to securely access enterprise resources from their favorite devices, no matter where they are.”

Three Benefits of Zero Trust Network Access

Adoption of zero trust drives enhanced security outcomes for organizations further bolstered by refined user experiences. In-depth, these include:

  1. Reduced network risk — A dynamic “least privilege” network access model blocks unauthorized users from accessing your critical network resources, hides applications from public view, and stifles the lateral movement necessary for most successful cyberattacks.

  2. Reduced friction for users — ZTNA enables your employees to work securely from both managed and unmanaged devices, with easy access to resources on-premises and in the cloud, without disruption. This improved user experience is made possible by direct connectivity to specific applications – without backhauling network traffic.

  3. Replacement of antiquated VPNs — A VPN authenticates to an entire network, offering users and successful attackers broad access to your environment. In contrast, a ZTNA solution grants segmented access to authorized applications via outbound-only connections stitched together at the service edge. This direct connection ensures users are never placed on the network and are never given full access to an organization’s network resources. (See diagram below).

These benefits highlight the symbiotic relationship in the organizational tug-of-war between productivity and cybersecurity. Now you can empower your company and bolster both priorities by implementing zero trust network access.
