For 30 years, enterprises have relied on network-centric methods to connect users to the network, and by extension the applications running on it. But the way users work has changed, and with applications moving to cloud, the perimeter has extended to the internet. This renders network-centric solutions, like remote access VPNs, obsolete.
Zscaler Private Access (ZPA) is a cloud service from Zscaler that provides seamless, zero trust access to private applications running on public cloud or within the data center. With ZPA, applications are never exposed to the internet, making them completely invisible to unauthorized users. The service enables the applications to connect to users via inside-out connectivity versus extending the network to them. Users are never placed on the network. This zero trust network access (ZTNA) approach supports both managed and unmanaged devices and any private application (not just web apps).Read the Data Sheet
NOV, a 150-year-old oil and gas company, uses ZPA to enable zero trust for more than 7,000 apps and 10,000 users.
Growmark, a U.S.-based agricultural supply cooperative, enabled zero trust access to SAP and cloud apps with Zscaler’s ZTNA technology.

See how MAN Energy Solutions uses ZTNA technology to provide zero trust access to private applications at sea.
78% of enterprises are looking to adopt a zero trust strategy. Here are some justifications for making zero trust network access (ZTNA) technology part of your digital transformation journey.
Users have seamless access across all apps and devices. Uses the same Zscaler Client Connector app as ZIA, and browser access is available for web apps.
Authorized users have access to specific private apps without the need to access the network, reducing the risk of lateral movement and the spread of ransomware.
Micro-tunnels enable network admins to segment by application with no need to segment networks or manage ACLs or FW policies.
Service-initiated ZTNA architecture ensures apps connect outbound to authorized users. IP addresses are never exposed and DDoS is impossible.
Cloud adoption extends the perimeter to the internet. Use TLS-based encrypted tunnels and custom PKI to ensure private apps remain secure.
ZTNA as a service allows for simple management, high availability, greater scale, and strong protection against DDoS attacks.
ZPA provides visibility into previously undiscovered internal applications running in the data center or public cloud. Admins can set granular policies for discovered applications to ensure least-privilege access. This control, combined with ZPA’s ability to make known applications invisible to unauthorized users, minimizes exposure and reduces the attack surface.
