Employee and 3rd Party Remote access to Web Applications

Web applications today can be hosted on-premises, in public clouds like AWS, GCP, Azure or delivered as a SaaS. Traditional VPN-based remote access solutions are inadequate and a large security risk. The right approach to secure web application access is one that continuously authorizes access based on user and device security posture.

The problem

Users, like employees, partners, contractors or 3rd party developers that are accessing web applications, are highly mobile. In many cases these users need to access these applications utilizing personal devices.

The changing nature of both the people who access web application and the distributed deployment of those web applications make VPNs completely ill-suited to protect this environment.

 

Massive Security Gap

Massive Security Gap

  • VPNs enable broad access to your network. A compromised VPN allows lateral movement across a corporate network leading to a massive exposure.
  • VPNs rely on a one-time authorization approach with no ability to monitor abnormal activity to detect potential breaches.
Management  Nightmare

Management Nightmare

  • No centralized way to secure IaaS, on-prem, and SaaS applications based on security posture of users and devices resulting in massive complexity of operations
  • Complex network level policies to segment access, which have to be constantly updated to match dynamic user and application environments
Bad User Experience

Bad User Experience

  • Due to complexity in deployment, users experience performance delays and in many cases are often unable to access the applications due to VPN connectivity issues
  • IT admins find VPNs are expensive to acquire, maintain and upgrade

There is a better way to achieve Zero Trust remote access to your web application environments without a VPN and more importantly, a way to dramatically reduce your vulnerability footprint.  With Banyan, a security team can define the access privileges to a particular web application, on a per user basis, in fact you can restrict access to specific API calls. No other solution can provide this fine-grained control, all while offering an alternative to cumbersome centralized VPNs.  Now, with Banyan's Zero Trust Remote Access Platform you can achieve direct, secure least-privileged access to your web applications.

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.  

 

Dramtically Improved

Dramatically Improved Security Posture

  • Orders of magnitude reduction in visible attack surface by delivering on least privilege access based on quantified trust and continuous authorization
  • Real-time enforcement of access with enforcement on a per application basis for complete end-to-end security
Comprehensive Solution

Comprehensive Solution

  • Homogeneous experience whether applications are deployed in IaaS, On-Premises or delivered as SaaS
  • Support for all applications; Private, Internal apps (DevOps - Jira/Jenkins/Confluence to SecOps - Splunk, Demisto, to Admin Consoles on VMware or AWS to SaaS applications like Workday)

Seamless End-User Experience

  • Direct access to applications be they on private clouds or SaaS deployed
  • Simplified access policies tied to user and application profiles for ease of management

the banyan approach

The Banyan Security Zero Trust Remote Access platform is unique in its ability to support multiple remote access use cases. When securing access for web apps, the platform enables direct access to the application securely and in compliance with Zero Trust principles.

Steps 1-4 are performed to create a quantified trust score-based access paradigm coordinated with predefined least privilege access policies written in the Cloud Command Center.  Step3 is an example of integration with tools like SSO, MDM to ensure that existing tools can be leveraged to generate a Trust Score. Step 5 is the final step in which access is granted. The data path is direct to the application, ensuring the path is owned by the enterprise for the highest security posture as opposed to being routed through a 3rd party cloud.

Key Features for Secure Web Application Access

  • Real-time check of user and device security posture before granting access using employee-visible TrustScore
  • Continuous authorization post-login to enable enforcement for events like the latest zero day detected by EDR tool resulting in immediate denial of access
  • Leverage standard protocols (e.g., TLS, HTTPS, SSH) without the reliance on any custom protocols
