As cyber threats evolve, prioritizing access control and strict authentication become crucial. Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) allows authenticated users to access specific resources, reducing attack risks, while Software-Defined Perimeter (SDP) technology dynamically isolates applications from the public internet to minimize exposed attack surfaces. These measures help organizations protect systems and data, fostering a secure digital environment.

Cloudbric provides advanced Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) solutions Cloudbric PAS (Private Access Solution) and Cloudbric RAS (Remote Access Solution) to effectively safeguard businesses of all types against sophisticated cyber threats.

Cloudbric PAS is an agent-based ZTNA solution that incorporates Software-Defined Perimeter (SDP) technology. It ensures secure access to private resources within your network, granting access only to authorized users while minimizing the risk of unauthorized entry.

Cloudbric RAS is an agentless ZTNA solution that provides an easy and convenient implementation. It offers secure remote access, allowing authorized users to connect to critical resources securely from any location.
