Based on Zero Trust, the solution enables organizations to securely adopt Cloud technologies and provide secure access to enterprise-IT systems from anywhere.
A cybersecurity firm, based from Singapore and Mumbai, Block Armour has launched its Unified Secure Access solution. The solution is based on Zero Trust principles, enables organizations to provide secure and compliant access to enterprise-IT systems for users working within the office or remotely. The integrated solution provides safe access to on-prem and Cloud / multi-Cloud based services, based on the philosophy of ‘Never trust. Always verify.’
The solution is especially crucial in the wake of the rapid adoption of cloud and remote access technologies among organizations due to the COVID-19 pandemic worldwide. This has resulted in highly distributed and hybrid IT ecosystems that have been deployed without adequate vetting of their cybersecurity capabilities, leaving enterprise-IT systems even more vulnerable to cyberattacks.
Speaking about the solution, Co-founder and CEO at Block Armour, Narayan Neelakantan, observes, “Legacy tools like VPN are sorely lacking in delivering secure and compliant access required by today’s modern digital enterprises. Block Armour’s solution, on the other hand, replaces four different, conventional point products – VPN, NAC, Cloud Firewall and Multi-factor Authentication – and additionally delivers Zero Trust Network Access and Server Protection.”
The solution protects the business network against malware and ransomware, and its device posture check guarantees that only trusted and compliant devices have access. It also provides a single view of all network access and is simple to set up, requiring only minor changes to the existing IT environment.
Powered by Software Defined Perimeter (SDP) architecture and Blockchain technology, Block Armour’s Unified Secure Access solution uses digital signatures instead of IP addresses to identify, authenticate, and authorise any devices accessing business networks, applications and data. The solution reduces the overall costs and complexity of providing safe access to users, simplifying Zero Trust implementation across the enterprise and empowering Cloud adoption.
