Benefits of a Zero-Trust Network



The focus is shifted from sites to the users, their devices, and the applications they consume. The reduced reliance on the network significantly reduces the time required to adapt to business changes.



As an integral part of the network rather than an afterthought, all traffic flows are engineered to ensure inspection engines are in-path and situated close to the users. This tight cohesion delivers a consistent security posture increasing compliance across the entire organisation.

User Experience

Through robust user identification and data classification, security controls dynamically adapt based on predefined policies. This reduces the friction associated with other security paradigms, delivering profound improvements to user adoption
and productivity.

Carrier & ISP Management


Installing application gateways allows legacy resources to be consumed as if they were SaaS. Connecting directly to the applications rather than via the corporate network significantly improves the user experience.

Lower cost of ownership

Cost Savings

The paradigm-shift from a network-centric to a user-centric architecture provides an opportunity to completely reassess the existing cost models. This would create an opportunity for potential cost savings.
