Access Methods

TAC bridges the gap between security and access to all your resources, local and cloud, through comprehensive authentication and inspection that seamlessly ensures an optimal end user experience.

Security is crucial to organizations. You want to provide access to business resources, but you must be able to do so securely. Failure securing access to your organization can result in financial loss, financial penalties, litigation and significant reputation damage.

​At the same time, you have mounting pressure to provide nearly ubiquitous access to information from anywhere on any device.

These two forces have always been opposed: Security versus access. You don’t have to fight these battles any longer. It is possible to enable mobility and provide higher levels of security with Total Access Control.

HOW TAC BRIDGES THE GAP BETWEEN SECURITY and ACCESS WITH ZERO TRUST ACCESS CONTROL

REVERSE PROXY

With TAC’s reverse Proxy gateway, every connection is inspected before a user is connected to your corporate resources – whether those resources exist in your local data center or in the cloud. 

Not only that, but TAC’s Zero Trust Access Control let’s you determine what criteria  users must meet before getting access – and not just what third-party vendors may require.

No direct connection to resources – users must pass inspection through TAC first

Validates every connection before allowing access – including robust endpoint inspection, credentials verification, device validation and more

Each connection to each resource must pass the security policies you have set before access is granted

You set the security policies for access to each of your applications. This allows for variable access or partial access to resources. No more “all or nothing” security policies

TAC's dynamic gateway intelligently reacts to each request for access and makes determinations based on that particular user and their access criteria – their device, device status, location, credentials and more

TAC allows you to customize your authentication policies based on the risk criteria you set – for example, prompting for extra authentication for certain more sensitive applications, or only allowing managed corporate devices to access certain resources

ENDPOINT AWARENESS

UNDERSTANDING WHAT’S HAPPENING ON AN END USER’S DEVICE IS CRUCIAL TO MAINTAINING YOUR DEFENSE POSTURE ACROSS YOUR INFRASTRUCTURE.

Zero Trust Access Control isn’t just about your end users’ credentials – it’s about their full context of access. To fully grasp the end users’ complete context of access, it’s important to understand what’s happening on their endpoints. TAC provides robust endpoint inspection of critical factors that include:

SECURITY INSPECTION

THOROUGHLY INSPECT ALL TRAFFIC FOR POTENTIAL ISSUES AND TO BLOCK THREATS

MANAGE YOUR SECURITY INSPECTION ON MULTIPLE LEVELS TO IDENTIFY AND BLOCK TYPICAL THREATS,
YET STILL DELIVER A HIGH LEVEL OF SECURE ACCESS TO YOUR APPLICATIONS – BOTH LOCAL AND CLOUD.

APPLICATION PROTECTION

SOPHISTICATED ZERO TRUST ACCESS CONTROL FOR ALL YOUR RESOURCES – LOCAL AND CLOUD

ENSURE OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE WITH TAC'S ZERO TRUST ACCESS CONTROL

TAC’S ZERO TRUST ACCESS ENSURES OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE IN A NUMBER OF WAYS, NAMELY:

Authentication

Authentication is an important aspect of your security. However, the old ways of using username and password for security simply don’t cut it in today’s perimeterless world. It is far too easy to compromise those credentials through social engineering attacks such as brute force, phishing, pretexting, baiting, quid pro quo or tailgating.

However, when those credentials are combined with multiple other factors of authentication by TAC, you can lock down your security using the principals of Zero Trust Access Control – all while simultaneously making life easier for your end users, wherever they are working from.

 

Another important aspect of security is authentication. However, the old ways of using username and password are simply not enough from a zero trust perspective. It is far too easy to compromise a user’s credentials, whether that is through a brute force or dictionary attack, or through a phishing attack. While username/password is not the best way to secure access for your organization, when combined with other identification mechanisms, TAC uses zero trust access to lock down the security of your environment while simultaneously making it easier for your end users.

These two forces have always been opposed: Security versus access.
