Secure Cloud Migration

Secure remote access to your migrated applications.

You’re migrating apps to cloud. But what about application access?

Each day more apps are being moved to Azure, AWS and Google for a variety of reasons. These include faster innovation, urgent capacity needs, and refreshing infrastructure.

Even in the midst of this cloud transformation, and the perimeter extending to the internet, many enterprises still rely on incumbent technologies built in the old world, when apps resided solely in the datacenter. They place users on-net, and encounter complexity that slows the migration to cloud, making it hard for enterprises to realize a return on their cloud investment.

Relying on UTM and NGFW appliances to secure internet traffic is costly, results in appliance sprawl, and compromises branch security.

IT has evolved. Now application access must as well.

Time for modern approach to access apps in the cloud

Before:Cloud access meant network access

In this past teams were forced to place users on-net in order to provide them with access to public cloud.

After:Application-based security

A modern approach provides authorized users with secure access to apps using the internet.

Before:User experience was poor

Legacy technologies frustrated users and made them think about which apps they were accessing and how to access them.

After:Seamless and consistent experience

Users connect the same way to apps running in the datacenter as they do to those in the cloud and from any device or location.

Before:Complexity slows cloud migration

Setting up appliances and managed ACLs and FW policies took too much time and effort.

After:Accelerate application migration

ZPA is software-based and makes security simple to deploy across all app and environment types.

A secure cloud architecture built to support all apps and clouds

The Zscaler Private Access Service provides secure remote access to internal applications in cloud and without placing users on the corporate network. The cloud service requires no complex remote access VPN gateway appliances, and uses cloud-hosted policies to authenticate access and route user traffic to the closest application location to them. A true software-defined solution that can work in conjunction with direct access technology which directly connects customer data centers with cloud service provider data centers.

1.  Zscaler Enforcement Node
  • Hosted in cloud
  • Used for authentication
  • Customizable by admins
  • Brokers a secure connection
    between a Z-App and a Z-connector
2.  Zscaler App 
  • Mobile client installed on devices
  • Requests access to an app
3.  App Connector
  • Sits in front of apps in
    Azure, AWS, and other public cloud services
  • Listens for access requests to apps
  • No inbound connections

Enterprise benefits

Seamless User experience

Fast, direct access to cloud with a cloud-like user experience

Secure Cloud Access

Remote users are never placed on the network, but instead are given access to apps based on policy

Reduce costs

There are no appliances to purchase and teams optimize bandwidth of direct access technologies

Accelerated Adoption

Standardized security reduces security and networking complexity and accelerates cloud initiatives

See how MAN Energy Solutions uses ZPA as a more secure way to connect end users to internal apps, including those that have been migrated to public cloud.
