What is ZTNA?
Zero trust network access (ZTNA) is an element of zero trust access that focuses on controlling access to applications. ZTNA extends the principles of zero trust access (ZTA) to verify users and devices before every application session. This confirms that they meet the organization’s policy to access that application.
Fortinet Brings ZTNA to the Fortinet Security Fabric
Starting with the FortiOS 7.0 release, ZTNA capabilities are enabled on any device or service running FortiOS. This includes hardware appliances, virtual machines in clouds, or even the FortiSASE service.
A FortiGate next-generation firewall and the FortiClient ZTNA agent are all that’s needed for your organization to enable more secure access and a better experience for your remote users, whether on or off the network. These benefits are compelling many organizations to shift from VPN to ZTNA.
