Security Service Edge
As applications move to the cloud and workers are increasingly mobile, enterprises need secure access to hundreds of cloud instances and on-premises servers. Proofpoint Secure Access provides people-centric remote access to resources in the datacenter and the cloud.
Secure Access Use Cases
People-centric security and simple cloud management
Experience a better way to connect remote employees, partners and customers to your datacenters and cloud infrastructure, with tighter security, superior user experience and reduced IT management. Proofpoint Secure Access eliminates overly permissive access, slow connections, and endless administration - while delivering segmented, verified, and audited access for every type of user.
- Granular Access - Reduce exposure by granting each user explicit access to specific applications. The rest of the network is hidden from view.
- Convenient User Experience – Enable access to authorized applications wherever they are located with a single, always-on connection. The cloud-native, encrypted overlay network features global PoPs to optimize performance.
- Central Management and Total Visibility – The cloud-delivered secure access solution frees up IT from managing rules and troubleshooting problems across appliances in multiple locations.
Eliminate the complexity of providing secure remote access when moving to cloud platforms like Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform. With Proofpoint Secure Access, seamlessly set-up cross-cloud connections and apply security policies. Provide users with micro-segmented secure access to hundreds of cloud instances, automate cloud-to-cloud connectivity, or enable hybrid cloud networking between on-premises servers and public clouds.
- Single Connection Access – Users connect once to access one or more clouds, data centers or even branches, based on policy.
- Granular, Identity-Based Security - Define granular access policies for applications, servers or networks within each cloud.
- Enhanced User Experience – Enjoy reduced latency and secure access to authorized applications wherever they are located leveraging a global networks of PoPs.
- API Automation - Automate cloud-related network workflow from policy definitions through dynamic access assignments, egress rules and more.
Secure Remote Access for Contractors
Easily enable third party secure remote access for contractors, partners and customers to the applications they need, while limiting the risks associated with excessive privileges. and adopt a zero-trust alternative that offers segmented, verified, audited access for every user. Proofpoint Secure Access provides a consistent user experience via a client or a browser. Secure Access is simple and transparent, anywhere in the world.
- Reduced risk - Create an identity- and context-based boundary around applications and enforce a customized policy for each device. Unauthorized resources are invisible, reducing the potential attack surface.
- Application-specific access - Define policies and associate contractors with specific applications and services, rather than providing access to entire network segments.
- Easy onboarding - Manage remote access policies to all enterprise resources in the data center or the cloud from a single cloud console.
Mergers and acquisitions often involve a sudden influx of new employees who need access to essential corporate resources as quickly and smoothly as possible. Combining corporate networks and establishing a new perimeter is typically a complex and time-consuming project. With Proofpoint Secure Access, setup takes days rather than months; instead of securing a physical perimeter, Proofpoint Secure Access creates a software defined perimeter (SDP) that provides segmented, audited access for every user.
- Simplified onboarding and management – Streamline deployment with cloud-delivered secure remote access and central policy management for all enterprise resources in the data center or the cloud.
- Global network backbone - Support thousands of concurrent users with a cloud-native, encrypted overlay network and a large number of global PoPs.
- Auditing and analytics - Ensure all network traffic is fully attributed and auditable with permanent user/device identity embedded at the packet level.
