Application Access Redefined: Secure, Simple, Fast
Enterprise Application Access is a unique cloud architecture that closes all inbound firewall ports, while ensuring that only authorized users and devices have access to the internal applications they need, and not the entire network. No one can access applications directly because they are hidden from the Internet and public exposure. Enterprise Application Access integrates data path protection, single sign-on, identity access, application security, and management visibility and control into a single service.
It can be deployed in minutes through a unified portal with a single point of control, in any network environment, and at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions. The result is a secure-access delivery model that enables a zero CapEx, low OpEx model for critical workloads deployed in any environment.
Deliver Access to All Internal Apps
Provide seamless access for all enterprise applications regardless of origin delivered by vendors such as Atlassian, Microsoft, SAP and Oracle through a single-sign on portal, or integrate with your existing SSO solution, like Okta.
Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA/2FA)
Enable an additional level of security further by authenticating users using MFA across email, SMS or TOTP, or integrate with your existing 2FA provider, like Duo Security.
All access is encrypted using AES256 encryption over TLS-1.2, ensuring that no confidential data is exposed to prying eyes on the network.
Unified Auditing & Reporting Capabilities
Capture all users IP address, usernames, and actions taken, as well as geolocation for easy compliance reporting.
Simple User Management Portal
Easily enable access to all applications--whether deployed in private clouds, e.g. VMware or OpenStack, public clouds, e.g. Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Compute or IBM Softlayer, or on-premises--in minutes. No additional hardware or software required.
Full-featured, server load balancing capabilities
Balance traffic load across a group of servers and configure to monitor the health for each application server and apply a variety of load balancing policies.
How Does Enterprise Application Access Work?
An Enterprise Application Access connector connects to your application server, then dials out to the Enterprise Application Access service on TCP port 443, commonly open for outbound communication on most companies’ firewalls. No additional hardware or software is required.
The service is architecturally designed based on three major components:
- Data Edge: Provides the data plane between the user and the application, as well as the data security, application performance and optimization components.
- Management Edge: Provides management, logging, reporting, and configuration capabilities. The management and data edges are based on a secure, multi-tenant architecture. In addition to the multi-tenant data cloud, you have the option to select a dedicated single-tenant data cloud that can be configured to only process a single user’s traffic.
- Enterprise Connectors: Your users connect to the Enterprise Application Access single-sign on service through a URL they enter in their browsers. They simply provide their credentials to gain access to your applications. You also have the option to integrate with existing SSO solutions you may already have.
Enterprise Application Access works with all applications, including legacy on-premises apps, IaaS and SaaS apps.
Enabling Single Sign-On Across All Application Types
Seamlessly access on-premise, IaaS and SaaS applications including any SAML 2.0 compliant apps– such as Salesforce, Microsoft Office 365, Workday, DropBox, ServiceNow or Google Suite.
