As we’ve mentioned in a previous blog, Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) can be defined as a framework where all users must have continuous authentication, authorisation and validation prior to data and application access. We’ve also examined why Palo Alto Networks believe ZTNA 2.0 is the superior option when it comes to identity protection, as it’s capable of ensuring 'true end-to-end multitenancy' by providing 'proactive identification of problems, along with the ability to isolate and resolve issues automatically to ensure the best possible experience’.
With organisations focused on scaling any existing virtual private networks (VPNs) to accommodate for remote workers, it’s become apparent that simply using a VPN is no longer satisfactory when it comes to ensuring a secure connection, and providing complete security for a remote workforce.
This is where ZTNA 2.0 comes into play as a ZTNA 2.0 framework has the advantage of being able to securely support workers regardless of where they want to work- on premise, in the comfort of home or travelling.
When it comes to implementation, Palo Alto Networks discovered that 98% of CXOs admitted the implementation process to be somewhat challenging. In short, those challenges can be attributed to prioritisation uncertainty, unqualified vendors being unable to provide a complete integrated solution, and lack of expertise internally.
Let’s take a look at what a ZTNA 2.0 implementation process looks like with Palo Alto Networks:
