Safe-T Group Ltd. (NASDAQ: SFET) today announced the launch of its Perimeter Access Orchestration Fabric (PAOF) designed to take its leading Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) solution to the next level. ZTNA solutions are designed to help organizations adopt, more effective, security models based on the "never trust, always verify" principle. With the expansion of network boundaries, the required perimeter-based defenses can no longer rely only on firewalls and VPN technologies. At the same time, there is still a huge gap between exploiting the potential of ZNTA technologies, and the actual use cases, capabilities, implementations, and end results. "Organizations tend to think that the adoption of a Zero Trust-based network is difficult, expensive and entails operational risks," said Amir Mizhar, Co-Founder, director, President and Chief Software Architect at Safe-T Group. "The result is that the huge technological potential of ZTNA is unfulfilled. Using Safe-T's transparent deployment, we offer a unique network-centric ability to implement our solution within corporate network VPNs, firewalls and application services, allowing seamless integration across all legacy infrastructure and authentication services." Organizations today face a wide range of remote access scenarios and requirements, all of which must be addressed by a single solution, such as: • Employees and third-party contractors accessing internal resources; • Internal users connecting via the corporate network accessing internal resources; • Remote access to cloud-based and on-premises legacy applications; and • Integration of multi factor authentication (MFA) and identity awareness into all remote access scenarios. Understanding the need for ZTNA solutions that will coherently and completely address all remote access scenarios and requirements, Safe-T has re-designed its ZTNA solution to create the first ever PAOF, incorporating the following modules: • The Safe-T Secure Application Access (SAA) – a client-less ZTNA module; • Support for built-in and third-party MFA and Identity Providers (IdP); • Supporting re-challenging users with two-factor authentication (2FA) when accessing specific applications; • Application access control for network connected (internal) users; • Integration with leading VPNs – adding ZTNA to existing VPNs; • Reporting on all user and application activity; and • User behavior anomaly detection. Safe-T's new PAOF version of ZTNA solution supports existing VPN solutions, removes the need to re-design the network and access flow, and allows organizations to support all remote access scenarios: • All user types – people (managed or unmanaged), applications, application programming interfaces (APIs) and connected devices; • All user locations - external or internal; • All application types - new or legacy; and • All application locations - cloud or on-premises.
