Securing the Future of Work Without Compromise.
High-Performance ZTNA delivers up to 30x the performance of ZTNA to get your remote workers productive and happy.
VPN (virtual private network) services for secure access are failing the modern hybrid worker that needs fast access to SaaS, cloud, and data center apps. Zero trust network access (ZTNA) is beginning to take over, and although an improvement over VPN, it is still lacking the performance that remote users need to do their jobs effectively.
There are other challenges associated with implementing current ZTNA offerings, including:
No continuous verification of the device posture
Lack of automatic edge selection – fixed PoPs
Lack of support for server-initiated secure connections
No fast certificate rotation
PROTECT AND VERIFY
Zero-trust network access (ZTNA) seeks to protect an organization’s networks, apps and data from malicious actors by limiting access and verifying user identity at every step. A zero-trust security model denies access to an enterprise’s digital resources by default. It only grants authenticated users tailored, siloed access to the specific applications, data, services, and systems they need to do their jobs.
Support for all SaaS and data center apps.
The benefits of ZTNA include:
Support for all SaaS and data center apps
No requirement to backhaul traffic through the data center
Scales up capacity with the purchase of additional licenses
No complex network segmentation
Easier visibility and control
Faster deployment – no VPN servers or appliances required
A High-Performance ZTNA service is based on mTLS 1.3 and rotates security certificates in hours, not years.
To avoid detection, modern attacks are “low and slow“. By rotating certificates multiple times a day, these exploits that involve certificates are eliminated.

A Secure and Performant Remote Access Solution
The Brink App, FAST Edges, and Cloudbrink’s connector software work together to provide a more secure and performant remote access solution than current ZTNA or ZTNA 2.0 offerings. The Brink App is powered by AI to overcome local Wi-Fi and broadband network challenges, while FAST Edges are automatically created close to the end user for maximum performance. This provides a high-performance, highly secure end-to-end connection to private apps or data sources.
Cloudbrink’s High-Performance ZTNA Three Main Components
Enterprise access points called FAST (Flexible, Autonomous, Smart, Temporary) Edges are automatically created close to the end user enabling Cloudbrink to react rapidly to changes in demand, guaranteeing the highest possible performance. Cloudbrink can automatically scale thousands of FAST Edges. By contrast, traditional vendors typically provide only 100-200 PoPs at most. These edges form a mesh to create the fastest possible route through the cloud on a per-session basis. In contrast, other ZTNA vendors typically provide only 100-200 PoPs at most.
If required, Cloudbrink’s connector software can be deployed in the customer’s cloud environment or data center to provide a secure end-to-end connection to private apps or data sources.
