2023 Gartner® Market Guide for Zero Trust Network Access
Absolute Software Named as a Representative Vendor of ZTNA
Organizations have fully adopted digital transformation, migrated infrastructure and workloads to the cloud, and expanded their networks and connections to account for expanded remote and mobile work. Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) optimizes digital experiences, ensures always-on connectivity, provides robust security, and delivers the resilience needed to withstand relentless attacks while adhering to stringent regulations.
Zero Trust is a strategic approach to security and compliance. It helps ensure that access to systems and data is granted only to specific user groups and technologies in use – reducing the likelihood of data breaches and compromised systems. ZTNA enables effective Zero Trust by creating a secure and streamlined connection between users, applications, data, and devices.
To help security and risk management leaders evaluate ZTNA offerings as part of a security service edge (SSE) strategy , Gartner, a company that delivers actionable, objective insight to executives and their teams has published its 2023 Gartner Market Guide for Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA).
According to the research:
- Gartner defines zero trust network access (ZTNA) as products and services that create an identity and context-based, logical-access boundary that encompasses an enterprise user and an internally hosted application or set of applications. The applications are hidden from discovery, and access is restricted via a trust broker to a collection of named entities, which limits lateral movement within a network.
- To learn more about how ZTNA has emerged as an enabler of the widely accepted “never trust, always verify” approach to security and compliance that goes beyond traditional VPN, firewall, and password solutions, and why Absolute Software is identified, download: the 2023 Gartner Market Guide for Zero Trust Network.
