EAS provides fast, secure application access for global employees, customers, and partners
SAN JOSE, California, Sept. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- CDNetworks announces the availability of Enterprise Application Security (EAS), allowing enterprises to share mission-critical applications with remote employees, customers, and partners on any device. EAS protects applications and data while providing a fast, efficient user experience on CDNetworks' global content delivery network (CDN).
Global claims service provider, McLarens, was one of the first CDNetworks customers to adopt EAS. "We needed a way to share claims processing and employee timekeeping applications with remote employees and partners without sacrificing security and speed," said Andrew Kerr, VP, Technology Services, McLarens. "CDNetworks EAS allows us to provide reliable, secure, and fast access to applications, so our employees and insurance partners have an efficient and painless experience."
With EAS, enterprises share browser-based applications via the EAS Cloud without providing access to the internal network. Application user authentication takes place outside the internal IT infrastructure, requiring no change to the customer IT environment and no Virtual Private Network (VPN).
EAS allows enterprises to completely lock down their IT environment and move the attack surface to CDNetworks EAS Cloud with multiple layers of security to protect customer applications. EAS also provides a cloud-based management portal for detailed audit, visibility, control, and reporting.
EAS can be used by distributed teams, such as global sales organizations or remote manufacturing, to access reporting, accounting, manufacturing, HR, resource planning, and automation applications from any computer or mobile device.
"EAS has joined CDNetworks Cloud Security solutions including web application firewall and DDoS protection for end to end website, web application, and enterprise application security and speed," said Andrew Jaehak Koo, President & COO, Americas and EMEA, CDNetworks.
