VPN Alternative

Move away from inefficient VPNs to improve productivity and strengthen security.
Replace VPNs with NetFoundry Zero Trust.

The need for an alternative to VPNs is now more than ever

Despite being secure and dependable. VPNs fall short in providing comprehensive security features required to safeguard data in the current time of ever increasing remote work and cloud architecture.
Existing VPN solutions have performance challenges and impact user productivity when connecting to various cloud-based apps and on-premise apps while also posing a security threat. Also, VPNs are not immune to critical vulnerabilities which attackers may use to their advantage and compromise systems.
VPNs can slow down your connection speed, the connection can suddenly drop, and they are tricky to set up. Additionally, VPN tunnels and remote user VPNs are not well suited for connecting to the cloud because both tend to be rigid, complex, error prone, and costly to operate. Remote user VPNs are at the mercy of the Internet and VPN tunnels simply do not scale.

NetFoundry Zero Trust as an Alternative to VPNs

With our Open Source Internet overlay software that treats data in motion in a very new way, protecting that data while at the same time improving the speed and reliability of each session. But more exciting that the technology are the natural benefits associated with “spinning up” private networks over the biggest and most resilient network in the world – the Internet!
"The network” can no longer be an afterthought. Instead of “defaulting” to MPLS or VPNs to secure the connections, it’s now possible to embed the network with the applications which, done well, dramatically enhances the user experience and overall value of that application.

Software-only solution for simple, secure access to all apps

Completely replaces VPN clients

Zero trust network access with micro-segmentation

Direct routing via app specific networking

NetFoundry manages infrastructure as NaaS

No separate VPNs to manage - part of SASE platform

Zero trust security replaces VPN vulnerabilities

No Authentication = No Network

Until secure authentication, there is no data path, providing true zero trust networking security. NetFoundry includes build-in, fully managed, bi-directional secure certificate validation to authenticate every endpoint.

Secure Authentication = Zero Trust App Access

Users never get a full network connection! Users only get access to specific authorized applications (micro-segmented, least privileged access).  All assets remain dark due to NetFoundry's Fabric routers. The Fabric is controlled by your policies, while being managed by NetFoundry as NaaS.

Zero trust with micro-segmentation

VPNs provide access to entire networks. However, contractors, vendors or remote workers only only need access to specific apps. NetFoundry's micro-segmentation only provides access to the specific apps, greatly strengthening security and compliance.
