Axis Raises the Bar with Modern Day ZTNA Service that Boasts Hyper-Intelligence, Simplicity, and 350 Global Edges
Launches industry's first ZTNA Migration Tool and ZTNA Buyback Program setting the stage for migration away from ZTNA 1.0
SAN MATEO, Calif., Aug. 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Axis has announced a host of new enhancements to one of its four key Security Service Edge (SSE) modules – the Atmos ZTNA solution which secures access between authorized users and specific internal applications. The company also announced a slew of new tools to help companies easily migrate away from cumbersome ZTNA 1.0 solutions.
When remote work became the new normal in early 2020, Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) emerged as the premier solution for remote access, and the first step in the zero trust journey for most organizations. According to Gartner, ZTNA captured a 60% YoY growth rate (Source: Forecast: Enterprise Network Equipment by Market Segment, Worldwide, 2019-2025, 4Q21 update). Despite this, the constant challenge has been that many of the first ZTNA solutions, ZTNA 1.0, were rushed to market to meet the work from home moment. They lacked support for many legacy protocols (VOIP, ICMP, AS400 etc.), it was extremely difficult to set-up policies, and many did not even inspect traffic. This left companies longing for more simplicity and stronger security controls.
"Cybersecurity has never been more important, so it's no surprise that zero trust, and ZTNA solutions, have become a critical focus area for enterprises. What is surprising is how clunky, complex, and underwhelming most of the ZTNA 1.0 solutions are. With help from 50+ CISOs, we designed Atmos ZTNA to be a Modern Day ZTNA service that is smart, yet incredibly simple - so that on day one IT security leaders can embrace true zero trust, without the headache," said Dor Knafo, Axis co-founder and CEO.

Atmos SSE Platform
Short for "Atmosphere," Atmos is the modern alternative to legacy hub and spoke network architectures, and Security Service Edge (SSE) platforms that have datacenter-based architectures. Atmos helps IT avoid the need to connect users to the corporate network, drastically reduce exposure to ransomware threats, and spend less time on costly, and complex, firewall-based network segmentation. Atmos artfully integrates the four key SSE modules - Zero Trust Network Access, Secure Web Gateway, Cloud Access Security Broker and Digital Experience monitoring - into one platform with one pane of glass.
