As DevOps teams are increasingly distributed across the globe and enterprises are often turning to contract workers to help accelerate project deliverables, the need for securing SSH/RDP remote access has never been higher. Given the sensitive nature of this work and the potential for breaches evident with VPN based secure access, enterprises need a more secure approach that delivers on Zero Trust principles that fit the modern enterprise.
The notion of continuous verification and principle of least privilege are critical to this approach and VPNs just cannot keep up with these demands. Specifically, in the case of SSH/RDP access, VPNs fall short:
The Banyan Security Zero Trust Remote Access platform offers role and attribute-based access control to servers while providing integrated with your existing SSO, MDM tools as well as IaaS clouds like AWS, GCP or Azure.
With Banyan, a security team can define the access privileges to a particular server resource, on a per user basis. With Banyan's Zero Trust Remote Access Platform you can achieve direct, secure least-privileged access to your SSH/RDP environments.
The Banyan remote access solution is comprised of three core components that together deliver a complete Zero Trust Remote Access solution. First, we offer Trust Scoring capability for quantification of device and user and contextual factors. Next, we provide continuous authorization of access via our Cloud Command Center which is powered by Machine Learning engine. And finally we offer real-time access enforcement based on the principal of least privilege.
The Banyan Security Zero Trust Remote Access platform is universal in its ability to support multiple remote access use cases. For SSH/RDP access the Banyan platform manages all access elements from policies, to certificate generation and access enforcement.
Steps 1-5 are performed out of band to create a quantified trust score and generate a X.509 certificate to initiate access to their servers. Steps 3-4 show an example of an integration with tools like SSO and MDM to ensure that existing tools can be leveraged to generate a Trust Score for differentiated access not possible with current SSH/RDP access offerings. Step 6 shows that the access is granted and the data path is direct to the servers be they on premises or in an IaaS, ensuring the path is owned by the enterprise for the highest security posture as opposed to being routed through a 3rd party cloud.
Modern application environments require Zero Trust Remote Access solutions like Banyan Security.
