How can Zscaler help?
With Zscaler’s Zero Trust Exchange, users, devices and apps are not on the same network and there is no routable network between them. Removing the castle and moat architecture with VPN remote access eliminates or reduces the need for firewalls, VPN concentrators and routers that all can have management interfaces that are accessible via the public facing internet.
Zscaler Private Access (ZPA) can be used to manage network infrastructure by providing secure remote access to internal network devices, such as routers, switches, and firewalls. This can be done by configuring ZPA to allow remote access to the management interfaces of these devices, while keeping them hidden from the internet.
Using ZPA to manage network infrastructure is as simple as following these steps:
Identify the network devices that need to be managed remotely.
Configure ZPA to allow remote access to the management interfaces of these devices.
Configure the network devices to allow remote access.
Connect to the network devices using ZPA.
Manage the network devices remotely.
Once the devices are configured for remote access and the ZPA policy is in place, authorized users can connect to the devices using the ZPA client. This provides a secure, encrypted connection to the management interface of the device, without exposing it to the internet. authorized users can then manage the network devices remotely, using the same tools and interfaces as if they were on the local network.
By using ZPA to manage network infrastructure, organizations can improve security and simplify access management. This can help to improve efficiency and reduce costs, while maintaining a high level of security, control over the network infrastructure, and comply with BOD 23-02.
ZPA is FedRAMP Moderate, FedRAMP JAB High and StateRAMP Authorized as well as DoD P-ATO at IL5. Visit our Federal page for more information on how Zscaler serves the Federal government including 12 of the 15 cabinet-level agencies.
