Identifying users and authenticating devices: Securely connecting the right people and devices to the right applications and resources.
Secure web and internet access: Protecting users and their devices as they interact with the web and email.
Secure remote private application and desktop access: Providing a simple way to connect remote workers with private cloud and on-premise applications and remote desktops.
SaaS application access: Limiting access to public cloud apps like Office 365 or Salesforce to only authenticated and authorized users, eliminating credential theft risk and restricting data sharing privileges.
Network protection and monitoring: Segmenting and monitoring networks to stop threats like ransomware spread and detecting, blocking, and remediating intrusions.
Cloud area network™: Reducing cost and complexity while improving security by connecting users, apps, servers, and containers through a high-performance Zero Trust cloud overlay network.
