According to Gartner by 2022, 80% of new digital business applications opened up to ecosystem partners will be accessed through zero trust network access (ZTNA), and by 2023 60% of enterprises will phase out their remote access virtual private networks (VPN) in favor of ZTNA.
This new model uses a trust broker to mediate connections between a specific private application and an authorized user. It allows teams to begin with zero trust, but then provide connectivity based on context (identity, device etc.). Unlike VPNs, ZTNA technologies deliver a means of application access without network access, and the ability to mask applications from the open internet. Enterprises must now look to bake ZTNA into their security plans.
