Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) and Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) offer two very different types of cybersecurity protection, with ZTNA being much more robust and effective.
Zero Trust Remote Access
Zero Trust Network Access is based on user roles and responsibilities.
When a remote user logs into a corporate network, ZTNA requires several layers of continual authentication and then limits network access based on that user’s roles and responsibilities. A VPN automatically assumes trust based on a successful login and grants access to the entire network for that user.
Zero Trust Network Access goes way beyond encryption.
Zero Trust Network Access operates in a “never trust, always verify” parameter that looks at and verifies user, location, and device information before granting access. Virtual Private Networks simply provide a single encrypted login process, making them more prone to attacks and data breaches.
Zero Trust Network Access is a holistic approach to network security.
ZTNA is a holistic security approach that treats every user attempting access to the corporate network as a potential threat. On the other hand, VPNs are basically just secure network connections.
