Sangfor Included in Forrester’s New Tech: Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), Q2 2021

It’s growth spurred on by the pandemic, Zero trust network access (ZTNA) has dominated the network security market for distributed organizations, suddenly thrust into unfamiliar remote workforce territory. ZTNA protects both your on premises and cloud-based resources. Access is strictly controlled using several interwoven elements like verification, validate devices and limited access to critical and sensitive data.

Forrester is a leading research and advisory firm. Forrester’s recent release of their Q2 2021 New Tech analysis for Zero Trust Network Access is one of the publications CIO’s and IT professionals wait excitedly for, hoping to get the most cutting-edge information on the most cutting-edge products.  In their latest publication, Forrester analysts note that many enterprises in 2020 struggled against internal bandwidth capacity constraints, poor VPN capacity, and lack of effective cyber-security for remote users. Forrester predicts, and rightly so, that ZTNA is in line to replace VPN technology, is being used as a foundation for a full Zero Trust edge stack, and has proven itself successful in both major cities and remote areas.

The Forrester report provides an overview of 34 ZTNA vendors based on the number of years they had been in business, the number of employees, and the maturity of their ZTNA technology. Dependant on these criteria and a number of others, Forrester determined most ZTNA solution providers fall into one of three categories: “Late-Stage,” “Growth-Stage,”, and “Early-Stage”.. Sangfor Technologies was listed in Forresters “Growth-Stage,” which we believe signifies their continued growth and innovation in the industry space.

Sangfor has approached the rapid need for ZTNA by creating their Secure access service edge (SASE) solution. Sangfor’s cloud-native SASE solution, Sangfor Access, is designed to securely connect branch offices and remote users alike to business applications. Branch offices have the option of using their existing routers or Sangfor SIER to leverage SD-WAN connectivity and route all traffic to Sangfor Access. Remote users install a lightweight client on their laptop, to enable all relevant traffic routes to Sangfor Access.

Sangfor Access provides the three primary pillars of networking; identity, access, and security. Sangfor Access verifies user identity via authentication, granting only authorized business applications access, governed by preconfigured policies and user profiles. Sangfor Access provides 24x7 protection for branches and remote users from known and unknown threats including phishing, malware, and ransomware. Auditing capabilities monitor for any misuse of corporate applications or data leakage violations and provide productivity monitoring for remote users.
