Perimeter 81, the Secure Network as a Service solution for the modern and distributed workforce, has been included in the 2020 Market Guide for Zero Trust Network Access by Gartner Inc., a leading IT research and advisory company.
We were named as a representative vendor in the “ZTNA as a Service” category in the 2020 report. This year’s report was written by Analysts Steve Riley, Neil MacDonald, Lawrence Orans. Zero Trust network Access (ZTNA) describes the emerging market that is recommending organizations to replace their outdated traditional remote access VPN technologies with a more modern model that improves security while supporting a larger amount of use cases and enhancing the end-user experience.
Unlike stand-alone ZTNA solutions, as-a-service offerings require less setup and maintenance. According to Gartner, ZTNA as a Service solutions like Perimeter 81 typically require provisioning at the end-user or service side and route traffic through the vendor’s cloud for policy enforcement. Stand-alone offerings require customers to deploy and manage all elements of the product. In addition, several of the major IaaS cloud providers offer ZTNA capabilities for their customers.
What Is the Market Guide for Zero Trust Network Access?
Every year, Gartner publishes the Market Guide for Zero Trust Network Access. The annual report helps security and risk management leaders choose the best ZTNA solution for their organization’s needs, specifically application-centric and demand-driven connections.
In this year’s report, Gartner highlights how digital business transformation is affecting enterprises worldwide. According to Gartner, “ZTNA augments traditional VPN technologies for application access and removes the excessive trust once required to allow employees and partners to connect and collaborate. Security and risk management leaders should pilot ZTNA projects as part of a SASE strategy or to rapidly expand remote access.” (1)

Gartner recommends deploying “a ZTNA product that relies on multiple contextual aspects to establish and adapt trust for application-level access” and to “stop relying primarily on IP addresses and network location as a proxy for trust.”
ZTNA, the modern replacement for cloud VPN, removes excessive trust placed in physical networks in favor of adaptive, identity-aware, precision access that is application-oriented.
