The VPN Is Dead: Long Live Zero-Trust Network Access

Zero-trust network access (ZTNA), sometimes called software-defined perimeters (SDP), replaces traditional technologies and eliminates the need to extend excessive trust. Instead, it provides adaptive, identity-aware, precision access that improves flexibility, agility and scalability, while offering a consistent experience regardless of who the user is or where they are.
. What is ZTNA, exactly, and why is it suddenly so popular?
. What are the benefits and the common emerging use cases?
. What can we expect it to evolve into as it matures?
