Gartner® Market Guide for Zero Trust Network Access

Zero trust network access (ZTNA) has experienced rapid growth as organizations look to reduce risk and securely support their extended workforces. According to Gartner, at least 70% of new remote access deployments will be served mainly by ZTNA instead of VPN services by 2025—up from less than 10% at the end of 2021.1

ZTNA brokers connections between authorized users and specific private applications, granting zero trust access based on context such as identity, device, and content. Unlike VPNs, ZTNA solutions, such as Zscaler Private Access™, deliver users application access without needing to send them through the network, making applications invisible to the open internet.

This Market Guide for ZTNA includes key findings and recommendations to help IT and security leaders kick-start ZTNA as part of a security service edge (SSE) strategy. Take a look to get the Gartner overview of:

  • The ZTNA market and how it’s evolving
  • Key findings and recommendations
  • ZTNA benefits, risks, and use cases
