TransientAccess Performance vs VPN
While security is the prime consideration when moving from VPN to ZTNA, another important factor is performance. Not only do VPNs have a broad attack surface, they can impact dramatically network speeds for the endpoint. That’s why TransientAccess ZTNA’s performance vs traditional VPN clients like Open VPN is crucial.
Performance degradation in effect becomes a security issue, as the degraded user experience pushes users to avoid using VPNs and the already-limited security they provide. Shadow IT emerges and IT security teams get pressure to loosen controls.
Instead, with a Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) approach like TransientAccess, there’s no performance degradation. That’s in addition to the inherent security advantages of app to app security provided only when needed as needed on transient, disposable networks.
ZTNA Performance vs Open VPN
We’ve made a short video here showing the real-world performance hit of TransientAccess ZTNA vs a VPN client (in this example, Open VPN):
Whether remote access is via a mobile client or desktop, and whether it’s OpenVPN or a commercial VPN client, performance degradation will always be an issue. Contact us to compare for yourself.
