Zero Trust Remote Access

Zero Trust Remote Access

The Perimeter Has Moved On, Have Your Defenses?

Long live the perimeter, the perimeter is dead.

The well-defined, locked-down perimeter no longer exists. As applications, people and data have grown increasingly distributed, the perimeter has moved to wherever your users are and to whichever internet connected devices they’re using, and it’s more porous than ever. If you think your traditional perimeter-centric defenses are protecting it, think again. It’s time to turn-off your VPN and turn-to SAIFE®.

Micro-perimeterization

SAIFE Connect eliminate the concepts of network perimeter and trusted users. Instead, they create on-demand, dynamic network microperimeters for each connect device based on attributes such as their user identity, device identity, location, and time. Users can access only those applications and resources for which they’re authorized.

Micro-perimeterization cloaks applications and services on the network, making them undiscoverable by anonymous attackers. Users can see only those applications and resources for which they’re authorized. Hackers can’t hack what they can’t see. Micro-perimeterization makes the application/server infrastructure effectively “invisible.”

Zero Trust security monitoring ensures that devices are continuously evaluated as long as they remain connected and are immediately quarantined when found to be out of compliance.

Replaces multiple, non-integrated products with a single solution

SAIFE’s micro-perimeterization solution replaces an existing NAC, VLAN, Firewall and VPN with a single solution centralizing policy management, enforcement and reporting.

Easy to Implement and Manage

Traditional security tools like VPNs, firewalls, and NACs are labor-intensive to manage and struggle to keep up with the pace to of the business.  With SAIFE, access control, provisioning and management are simplified, which reduces the impact on security and network teams.

Zero Trust Security

SAIFE Connect is built upon a Zero Trust model. Devices are granted access to network services based upon factors such as identity, location and time. Zero Trust security means that devices are continuously monitored and evaluated allowing a compromised device to be identified and quarantined immediately and automatically.

Truly Invisible

SAIFE Connect endpoints terminate their connections within the Continuum cloud infrastructure. Endpoints do not connect directly with one another. This hides the topology of which endpoint is talking with which, making inference attacks much more difficult, compared to standard VPN technology where endpoints directly connect with one another.

No Open Ports, No Port Attacks

Endpoints typically access private networks through vulnerable open inbound ports on the perimeter firewall. SAIFE establishes one-way, response-only connections between the endpoint and the private network for specific, authenticated requests, allowing the inbound port of the firewall to remain closed. Closing all firewall ports effective makes the network assets invisible to the outside world and eliminates the possibility of a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack.

DDoS Protected

Networks typically allow endpoints to connect before authentication occurs leaving them vulnerable to service disruptions caused by unwanted connections from untrusted endpoints, as is the case with distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks.  SAIFE’s unique “protect then connect” paradigm authenticates each endpoint before connecting to the network or to another endpoint. In a DDoS attack, untrusted endpoints are denied access during the authentication process.
