Similarly , Zscaler Private Access ( ZPA ) is a cloud-delivered , Zero Trust network access service that provides secure access to all private applications , without the need for a remote access VPN . So , ZPA is a VPN alternative that ensures the network goes dark for everyone , preventing any lateral movement . On the next phase in building a Zero Trust network model , businesses should be implementing deception technology , app to app segmentation and cloud security posture management . So , at the start there are a couple of basic steps every organisation should implement around Internet and private access , and many more to consider thereafter .

On one hand , you ’ ve got the operation teams wanting to give everyone a great experience with utilising services . On the other hand , you ’ ve got the security teams that want to make sure everything is locked down . So , it ’ s a matter of pleasing
