The 10 Hottest Zero-Trust Vendors To Watch In 2021
From scrutinizing users and forsaking VPN to embracing micro-segmentation and authentication throughout the network, here’s a look at 10 zero-trust vendors fighting for the dominant position in this booming market.
Akamai’s Enterprise Application Access locks down the corporate network with dial-out only access to applications behind the firewall. Regardless of whether applications are hosted on-premises or in IaaS or SaaS environment, Akamai’s technology makes it so that application access is based solely on entitlement, identity, authentication, and authorization at a per-application level.
The company’s Kona Site Defender web application firewall protects internal applications against SQL injection attacks and other insider threats from formerly trusted hosts, Akamai said. Using a zero-trust approach to gain visibility and context for all traffic across users, devices, locations, and applications not only reduces risk, but also streamlines the corporate application deployment process, Akamai said.
Akamai additionally leverages device posture for dynamic access decisions, which complements and enhances existing authentication, authorization, access control rules, and reporting capabilities by providing additional context and signals. And Enterprise Defender enables companies to ensure secure access to applications they control, while mitigating risks around applications they don’t control.
