Case History: Smart Access and ZTNA at the real edge – the device

Smart Access and ZTNA at the real edge – the device

An enterprise business partner needed to move beyond the ‘Cloud Connector Client’ model and engaged Mobolize to improve performance, reduce security risks associated with the broad attack surface of the full tunnel VPN, and gain end user trust (separation of work and personal activity). Existing solutions only worked on managed devices to offer per app routing and split tunneling, thus limiting reach. Cloud Client Connectors tunnel all the traffic which has privacy issues for users, slows down the device and data, and some apps simply don’t work resulting in the end users turning on and off the client, not to mention the cost, scalability issues and large attack surface they create. The Data Management Engine, enabled via Mobolize SDK, delivers precision routing of traffic by app, IP and domain (no more managing a list of IPs that are constantly changing) and works without the need for device management (MDM). Privacy of end user personal apps and browsing is maintained as that traffic goes direct to origin. Business apps and services are micro-tunneled to exactly where they need to go while everything else runs unimpeded and full speed.
