At the center of Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) is the principle that users can only access the resources they need – everything else is hidden from them. Wandera allows application access permissions to be quickly and easily defined using familiar identity constructs, such as individuals or organizational groups. Once policies are configured, Wandera automatically enables secure access to select applications for authorized users.

As more users and applications operate outside the corporate campus, identity has become the new perimeter. Identity services allow administrators to define and manage corporate identities for users, including the definition of organizational roles and access permissions. Wandera provides users with secure connectivity from any device to the applications they are assigned using encrypted micro-tunnels. Wandera’s real-time security cloud ensures that only authenticated and authorized users gain access to sensitive applications, effectively reducing the exposed surface area available for attackers to exploit.

Enhancing security with Zero Trust

Authentication first

Before gaining access to any application the user must be authenticated and their deviceverified as secure. Account Takeover is prevented by Wandera’s cryptographic device identity system, stopping phished user credentials from being used to attack the business.

Least-privileged access

Each application has a unique micro-perimeter and only authorized users are enabled to enter. Risk-based policies dynamically restrict access to applications if a threat is detected on the endpoint or in the network, further minimising the risk of breach.

Real-time conditional access

Wandera continuously monitors a broad set range of telemetry and contextual inputs that can be used to prevent application access when, if an endpoint is compromised or at high risk. Zero-day threats are identified and blocked by Wandera’s machine learning AI.

Streamlined access management

By integrating Wandera with a business’s existing identity provider, IT can manage access policies using a single identity construct that is consistent across applications and network connections. Using modern authentication standards like SAML, SCIM and OIDC, Wandera is able to easily integrate with a wide range of directory services.

Identity-centric access

Once the integration is configured, admins can manage a user’s identity via the integrated provider. Wandera automatically mirrors user and role details, ensuring access policies are aligned and always up-to-date.

Automated workflows

Enabled by the identity provider, Wandera can be deployed automatically to managed devices to instantly enable the end user. Event logs can be sent to 3rd dashboards and SIEM/SOAR tools via APIs or datastreams.

Create once, apply everywhere

There is no need to manage multiple remote access tools, Wandera can provide access from any device to any application. Reporting is comprehensive across devices and is provided with the user’s real world name.

Optimized user experience

Wandera’s integration with existing corporate identity services means that users don’t need to remember additional credentials. Single Sign On (SSO) allows the corporate identity to simultaneously authenticate users with Wandera and their applications. Getting started and using Wandera is a straightforward process which doesn’t require users to remember any new passwords or learn any new processes. Additionally, multi-platform support ensures users have a consistent experience across every device.

Smooth setup

When activating Wandera there are no certificates or settings that need to be configured. Users sign in with their corporate credentials and secure access routes are automatically established as needed.

Instant connections

Wandera quickly connects users to applications without delays or additional steps. Wandera utilizes ultra-efficient network protocols to provide users the highest possible bandwidth.

Unified access

User’s don’t need to remember which access tools work with which applications; Wandera supports applications regardless of hosting location.

Integration and federation

Identity providers serve as the trusted authority for user authentication and identity. As a result, Wandera doesn’t need to maintain usernames and passwords for each end user, instead allowing users to log in using their existing company credentials (for example, username, password, and/or MFA token) to use Wandera services.
