Block Armour Announces the Launch of Its Zero Trust-Based Unified Secure Access Solution

Based on Zero Trust's principle of "Never trust. Always verify," Block Armour's Unified Secure Access solution delivers secured access to on-prem and Cloud / multi-Cloud-based systems.

Singapore, Singapore, July 15, 2021 --( Block Armour, a Singapore and Mumbai-based cybersecurity venture, announced the launch of its Unified Secure Access solution based on Zero Trust principles. The solution will empower organizations to enable secure remote working capabilities and adopt emerging technologies in the new normal post COVID-19. Based on the philosophy of "Never trust. Always verify," the integrated solution delivers secured access to on-prem and Cloud / multi-Cloud-based systems.

The solution is especially crucial in the wake of the rapid adoption of cloud and remote access technologies among organizations due to the COVID-19 pandemic worldwide. This has resulted in highly distributed and hybrid IT ecosystems that have been deployed without adequate vetting of their cybersecurity capabilities, leaving enterprise-IT systems even more vulnerable to cyberattacks.

Speaking about the solution, Co-founder and CEO at Block Armour, Narayan Neelakantan, observes, "Legacy tools like VPN are sorely lacking in delivering secure and compliant access required by today's modern digital enterprises. Block Armour's solution, on the other hand, replaces four different, conventional point products - VPN, NAC, Cloud Firewall and Multi-factor Authentication - and additionally delivers Zero Trust Network Access and Server Protection.”

The solution provides protection against malware / ransomware spreading to the corporate network, while its device posture check ensures access only from trusted and compliant devices. It also provides a single pane of visibility for all network access and is easy to implement, requiring minimal changes to the existing IT environment.

Block Armour's Unified Secure Access solution is powered by Software Defined Perimeter (SDP) architecture and Blockchain technology and harnesses digital signatures, instead of only IP addresses, as a means to identify, authenticate and authorize all devices accessing corporate networks, applications and data. The solution simplifies the implementation of Zero Trust across the organization and empowers Cloud adoption while reducing the overall costs and complexity of providing secured access to users.
