Benefits of ZTNA relative to VPN remote control:

While remote access VPN continues to serve us well, ZTNA provides a range of added advantages that make it a far more credible solution

More granular control: ZTNA has greater granular control over who can access those apps and details, minimizing lateral motion and eliminating implicit belief. VPN is all-or-nothing: usually, VPN provides access to anything while on the network.

Better protection: In access policy, ZTNA provides the system and health status to further boost security. VPN does not recognize system status, which may place a vulnerable or non-compliant device at risk for application data.

Easier to register workers: ZTNA is both quicker to incorporate and easier when it comes to registering new employees. More complex and complicated configuration and deployment are involved in VPN.

Open to users: ZTNA provides users with frictionless connection management with "just works" transparency. VPNs can be challenging and vulnerable to initiating requests for help. Overall, ZTNA provides a welcome option for linking one branch office to another.Sophos ZTNA is a brand new cloud-delivered, cloud-managed product designed to protect the big enterprise apps with granular controls quickly and transparently.
