Why read the ZTNA Market Guide?

Now that users have become more mobile, applications are increasingly hosted in the cloud and business partners require access for effective collaboration, it’s obvious that the traditional, perimeter-security based model is flawed for modern IT environments.

According to Gartner, “the reality of digital business is that it requires anywhere, anytime access to any application regardless of the location of the users and their devices”. “As more organizations transition to remote work, ZTNA has piqued the interest of organizations seeking a more flexible alternative to VPNs and those seeking more precise access and session control to applications located on-premises and in the cloud.”
