Axis Security Atmos Debuts
April 14, 2022
for “Atmosphere,” Atmos is the modern alternative to legacy hub and spoke
network architectures, and Security Service Edge (SSE) platforms that have
datacenter-based architectures. Atmos helps IT avoid the need to connect users
to the corporate network, drastically reduce exposure to ransomware threats, and
spend less time on costly, and complex, firewall-based network segmentation. The
cloud-native platform artfully extends secure connectivity out to the user’s
location through its 350 Atmos edge locations running on the global backbone of
AWS Global Accelerator, Google Cloud Platform, and Oracle.
The modern workplace is an orchestra composed of users, devices, applications,
and clouds – each playing their own tune, and constantly syncing, and changing.
This orchestra is difficult to secure, challenging to see, complex, and extends
far beyond the confines of the corporate network. It requires a solution
designed to harmonize workplace connectivity. Atmos enables an elegant syncing
of authentication, authorization, and connectivity across the workforce,
ecosystem partners, and hybrid cloud infrastructure with its Security Service
Edge (SSE) architecture.
Atmos sits inline empowering IT to inspect all traffic, easily brokering
surgical, one-to-one, connections based on identity and policy, and perform
end-user experience monitoring. Customers can then provide end users with secure
access to business applications from anywhere, provide safe access to the
internet and SaaS apps, and boost user productivity.
“The biggest obstacle to innovation that businesses face is disruption.
Disruption from a new work environment. Disruption from the latest security
breach. Disruption due to loss of connectivity” said Dor Knafo, Co-founder and
CEO of Axis Security. “Our mission is to propel innovation by making it possible
for businesses to work in harmony. So, when designing Atmos we knew it had to be
impossibly simple to use. We designed an elegant, easy to use policy tagging
system, and a single pane of glass for managing all users, devices, private
apps, Internet, SaaS, and digital experience monitoring. Atmos had to be smart
so that it could remain in sync with the business as it adapts, so we pioneered
new insights, and automated alerting. It also had to deliver security better
than anyone else on the market. We developed inline security and visibility for
external, and internal traffic, and next-gen data leakage controls to prevent
the bad from entering, and protect the good from leaking out. I’m excited for
what Atmos will enable for our customers.”
Atmos artfully integrates the four key SSE modules – ZTNA, SWG, CASB and
Digital Experience monitoring – into one platform with one pane of glass:
Atmos ZTNA is the most advanced ZTNA service in the industry. The service
provides an elegant alternative to traditional network security solutions (i.e
VPN) by providing global connectivity for any user, any device, and any private
Atmos Web Gateway is a secure Internet gateway stack delivered as a cloud
service. The globally-distributed internet access service sits between the
customer’s office, branches, mobile users and the Internet, inspecting traffic
and brokering the fastest connection possible.
Atmos CASB allows customers to quickly identify, manage, and control the use of
cloud services universally.
Atmos CASB ensures that sensitive business data remains protected from
cyberthreats or high-risk users.
Atmos Experience is the world’s only digital experience monitoring solution that
allows network, and Helpdesk teams, to create queries that offer key insights,
and visibility, into vital data – right from within its dashboard. This includes
end user device issues, spikes in CPU use, network outages from local ISPs, and
application performance challenges.
The Parts Authority our mission is to embrace zero trust in a way that enables
our employees to securely access the data they need to get work done. With the
Atmos platform, not only do we get the control we need, but we’re able to
deliver a user experience that our employees appreciate,” said Josh Gomez,
Director of IT, The Parts Authority.
“Axis is making an aggressive move from ZTNA to a much broader, fully integrated
cloud native Secure Service Edge platform. ZTNA provided better security, scale,
and flexibility over VPNs to ensure employees maintained secure access to
private applications during Covid. But as organizations look forward, they
should be exploring how a platform approach can improve security efficiency and
effectiveness. Converging secure access to private applications, SaaS apps, and
the Internet is the logical place to start,” said John Grady, senior analyst at
Enterprise Strategy Group.
