Organizations today face a challenging environment as cybersecurity threats become more sophisticated and pervasive while the numbers of connected enterprise endpoints and the amount of data stored in the cloud grows exponentially. To maintain network security, a comprehensive security approach to both endpoint security and network security is essential to protect against and remediate cyberthreats.

Securing connections between users and business systems that lie beyond your firewall is essential and presents several challenges, particularly when users are working remotely, and their devices connect to networks beyond your organization’s control.

Until recently, many organizations have relied on a traditional “castle-and-moat” approach to network security where defenses surround the perimeter of the network, but once someone has crossed the threshold or tunneled in, they are completely trusted. Network security experts now understand that this method is not sufficient for several reasons:
• Use of cloud-based services and SaaS applications is increasing, resulting in an extended and dynamic network perimeter where much of your proprietary data is stored outside of your physical location and more of your critical IT services reside in the cloud.
• Sophisticated phishing and social-engineering attacks can exploit users already inside the network.
• Using public Wi-Fi access points exposes various types of man-in-the-middle attacks, even for TLS traffic.
• Business partners, contractors, and large numbers of remote employees need access to your organization's tools and data to do their jobs, even when they are connected to networks outside of your perimeter.
• Performance deteriorates when you send traffic destined for cloud and SaaS services through your organization’s firewall and network.

Security-conscious organizations are moving to a Zero Trust approach to modernize network security while simultaneously enhancing and improving the network experience for end users. Every user, endpoint, and network are assumed to be potentially hostile. In Zero Trust security, no user can access anything until they prove who they are, that their access is authorized, that they’re not acting maliciously, and that the Wi-Fi or cellular network they are connected to is not compromised.

The question for organizations is how to implement a Zero Trust network access model that is continuously secure but still allows users to access all of the resources they need without losing productivity though frequent authentication prompts and reduced connection speeds. BlackBerry’s answer to this question is BlackBerry® Gateway.

BlackBerry Gateway enables AI assisted Zero Trust Network Access to enterprise SaaS & On-prem apps and is focused on earning trust across endpoint & network, continuously validates that trust at every event or transaction to deliver a Zero Touch experience that improves security with limited user interruption.

BlackBerry offers suites of products that, together, provide a total solution for Zero Trust with full coverage across the full spectrum of devices, network, apps and people. BlackBerry Gateway has these advantages:
• Zero Trust Network Access to On-prem & SaaS apps
• Provides a path from Zero Trust architecture to Zero Touch experience powered by strong AI
• Works across all endpoint types for complete coverage and better insight into trusted behavior
• Provides continuous monitoring and threat detection to facilitate data and AI integrity
• Provides contextual and continuous authentication that spans endpoints, networks, apps, and people
• Simplifies administration, reduces costs, and eliminates unnecessary friction

BlackBerry Gateway is the latest addition to BlackBerry® product suites, designed to provide network security as a service from all of your endpoints and to all of your cloud access points and on-prem resources with continuous authentication and authorization leveraging multiple contexts.

Holy cow, so much better than VPN

I've been a remote worker for 10 years. VPN is over 25 years old, and boy does it feel like old fashioned tech. Welcome to the new world with Gateway. Gone are the long waits to authenticate and reconnect. Gone are the slow downloads when you are paying for a high speed connection! Gateway is invisible security which as a user I really appreciate!

Bye Bye VPN!

Can't remember the last time I used our corporate VPN, since i installed and activated Gateway on my Mac. Gateway automatically connects/enables when I log on to the Mac and I am able to access all corporate assets I need and am allowed to access, securely!!
Two Thumbs up!

Huge improvement over vpn.

Once it's paired and set up the first time, it just connects when I wake up my computer. I don't have to constantly authenticate like I do with the vpn.
