Remote desktop access provider Leostream is launching a federated identity management solution with Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) for AWS.
According to the Boston-based firm, its is launching federated identity management with ZTNA for secure remote computing designed to protect and connect users across virtual desktop infrastructure, desktops-as-a-service and end-user applications in AWS environments.
The Leostream ZTNA-enabled Remote Access Desktop Platform is designed to enhance the security and management of end-user computing workloads in AWS with strict authentication and least-privileged access policies to ensure data remains locked in the corporate network. In addition, the platform works across on-prem and cloud environments to provide consistent levels of security, authentication, control and access tracking.
In addition to better protection for AWS users and data, Leostream says key benefits of its ZTNA for AWS solution include simplified IT with automated privileged access management, streamlining of user access with SSO solutions, improved productivity, elimination of VPNs and increased visibility into what users and devices are accessing.
The company bills the platform as a “single-pane-of-glass admin console” that simplifies the management of users and IT assets with real-time dashboard access to view usage and environment details.
According to Leostream, the company minimizes the risk of cloud instances being breached when not in use as the platform’s cloud orchestration tools launch, terminate, and power off instances in the cloud automatically, based on user need, which also helps control AWS compute costs.
Leostream CEO Karen Gondoly, in a statement, says remote or hybrid work models create security gaps, which the company’s ZTNA-powered platform can help close.
“AWS enables large user pools and diverse workloads, and with Leostream as the gatekeeper, organizations can enforce strict authentication to lock down environments while ensuring employees maintain access to the appropriate resources and the performance they need,” Gondoly says.
