The Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) model is the cornerstone of SSE (Security Service Edge) and SASE solutions. It provides a flexible and convenient complement to (or replacement for) VPNs while strengthening overall network security. Embedding Enea Qosmos Next Generation Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) software in ZTNA provides the accurate, detailed application classification and contextual metadata required to more safely authenticate users and continuously assess their trustworthiness.
Enea Qosmos Next Generation Deep Packet Inspection plays a key role in ZTNA, delivering the granular visibility required for rapid, secure and accurate access to private applications (on- or offsite) for unmanaged & managed devices.
Advanced first packet processing allows instantaneous breakout of on-premise traffic to the right SASE/SSE pillar: ZTNA, SWG or CASB. Real-time traffic analysis optimizes monitoring activities and immediately alerts the ZTNA solution to potential breaches allowing rerouting or traffic blocking. It also allows identification of evasive and anomalous traffic, making it easier to detect spoofing attacks, and to identify rogue private applications and devices in shadow IT. Ultra-reliable traffic classification, metadata and threat indicators support advanced micro-segmentation and fine-grained traffic handling rules.
