Cloud-Delivered or Appliance-Based VPNs Expose Your Business to Cyberattacks

It's time for a zero trust architecture.

Calling a cloud-delivered VPN "zero trust" is misleading. Move from legacy or cloud VPNs to Zscaler.

Zscaler’s cloud native zero trust network access (ZTNA) solution delivers secure, fast access to private apps for all users, from any location.

Secure
Secure

Reduce your attack surface and the risk of lateral threat movement. No more internet-exposed remote access IP addresses—connections are brokered, not routed.


Fast
Fast

Deliver direct access to private apps through the closest of more than 150 points of presence, without backhauling traffic.


Simple
Simple

Easily deploy and enforce simpler, consistent policies across campus and remote users. Leverage our unified agent and support for agentless access.


The Problem

All VPNs enable lateral movement, which can often lead to ransomware attacks.

Prior to its recent emergency directive on Ivanti VPN vulnerabilities, the US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) had called out numerous other VPN CVEs over the years. Need more proof? Here's what a list of web and ChatGPT queries revealed as the "top VPN vulnerabilities reported by CISA recently".

The challenge is that VPNs, whether hosted on-premises or delivered via virtual machines as a cloud access service, do not deliver a zero trust architecture. Rather, they provide network access, which can be exploited in a breach, enabling attackers to travel laterally and compromise high-value assets elsewhere on a network.
