The Banyan Security Platform – VPNaaS (VPN as a Service)

Platform Benefits

Unlike other vendors bolting together acquired products, the Banyan Security Platform was built from the ground up for the cloud, delivering benefits that extend beyond any single component. For example, continuous authorization, device trust, and certificate management are handled seamlessly, delivering superior security and usability across components. A single pane of glass provides visibility into who accessed what, when, using which device. Users no longer have to try and figure out which access method or credential set to use. And of course, robust APIs and integrations make it easy to incorporate into your existing environment.

Banyan Security VPNaaS

Traditional VPN solutions have some limitations and challenges for enterprise customers, such as high costs, complex management, scalability issues, and security risks. That’s why organizations are increasingly turning to cloud-based VPN services, which offer several benefits over legacy VPNs.

However, even with the arrival of zero trust network access (ZTNA), there are some use cases that VPN as a Service (VPNaaS) is well-suited for, and Banyan’s VPNaaS offers numerous advantages:

  • User Experience – VPNaaS delivers a consistent experience, regardless of worker or resource location, making it easy for remote employees or contractors to securely access the organization’s resources.
  • Scalability – Quickly and easily scale VPN capacity up or down according to need, without having to purchase or deploy additional hardware or software.
  • Cost-effectiveness – VPNaaS eliminates the need for expensive hardware and software licenses, making it a more cost-effective solution than traditional VPN appliances.
  • Easy Management – VPNaaS is managed by Banyan Security, freeing organizations from needing to maintain or manage their own VPN infrastructure, freeing up IT resources for other tasks.
  • Security – The Banyan Security Platform’s VPNaaS incorporates zero trust enhancements such as continuous authorization with device trust, along with the latest crypto cipher suites, to ensure VPN data is secure and protected.
  • Flexibility – Instead of installing and configuring VPN software and hardware on each device or location, enterprises can simply connect to Banyan’s VPNaaS via the internet and enjoy a fast, secure, and reliable VPN connection enhanced with zero trust.
  • Rapid Deployment – VPNaaS can be quickly deployed, with many Banyan customers getting their first service made securely available in less than 15 minutes. Additional connectors can be added globally, on any hypervisor and cloud platform, in seconds.
  • Visibility – A single configuration and management platform provides insights into users, devices, applications, and activity for your entire global deployment.
  • Decision-less Tunneling – A single, unified login gets users authorized access without needing to choose a specific appliance or gateway
  • High Performance – High-speed cryptography results in secure networking with a great experience.

VPNaaS provides a more flexible, cost-effective, and scalable solution for organizations looking to securely connect remote workers or branch offices to their network resources.
