Enforce modern cybersecurity to radically reduce risk and delight users and IT staff by addressing today's challenge of safely connecting anything to anywhere.


Secure, remote access to all private apps

Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) uses least privilege principles, contextual insights, and client or clientless-based methods to deny access by default and allow access to apps when granted. VPN as a Service extends coverage to non-ZTNA-enabled apps.

Defend users and resources from malware

Secure web gateway inspects web traffic, including encrypted, for protection. Files are scanned, known malicious content is blocked, and unknown files are sandboxed and analyzed. Controls can block specific activities and destinations that violate policy.

Expose shadow IT and protect sensitive data

A Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) discovers and controls SaaS cloud apps in use, including generative AI, and reports reputation, compliance, and risk scores. DLP protects against data exfiltration, and cloud malware detection removes infected files.

Provide traffic monitoring and inspection

Firewall as a service with IPS examines non-web traffic at layers 3–7 and drops unsafe packets. The DLP module identifies and blocks ChatGPT content. DEM tracks the performance of endpoints, networks, and core SaaS apps for faster issue detection.
