Cyolo, a provider of zero-trust network access 2.0 (ZTNA 2.0) solutions for IT and operational technology (OT), says the demand for data has increased dramatically in recent years and VPNs and other methods have failed to meet organizations’ demands.

He asserted that whilst third-party users, such as vendors and contractors, are frequently essential to an organization’s success, they also provide a sizable risk.
In addition, Apirion said the lack of strong authentication is one of the problems Cyolo aims to solve. He said many traditional on-premises and legacy apps lack modern authentication like multifactor authentication (MFA) and single sign-on (SSO). He added t …
