Working outside of the traditional office environment has become a cultural norm, with recognised benefits to employers.

However, organisations are typically struggling with providing remote workers with secure access to their private applications. Whilst user mobility has flourished, cloud application use has exploded and network perimeters have dissolved, outdated remote access VPNs are still used to give employees access to apps in the data center and public cloud.

Many organisations are therefore choosing to retire their VPNs and switch to a Zero Trust Network Access solution, largely driven by its inclusion in Gartner’s future vision of a cloud-delivered Secure Access Service Edge (SASE).


Netskope Private Access (NPA) is a cloud-based Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) solution that is a fully integrated component of the wider Netskope Security Cloud platform and delivered through the global Netskope NewEdge network. NPA directly connects remote workers to private applications running in public cloud environments or private data centers; reducing risk and simplifying security operations.

NPA allows an organisation to begin retiring legacy VPN hardware, and move towards a more secure, cloud-first, remote access architecture. This approach means high capital investments are no longer needed, nor are refresh cycles and ongoing management costs of VPN appliances.

Use Cases

  • Provide remote users with secure zero trust access to authorized applications, not your entire network
  • Deliver a seamless end user experience for accessing applications in public clouds and data center environments
  • Provide employees with remote access to apps in the public cloud without needing to expose them publicly
  • Retire inefficient and complex VPN routing architectures used to access applications in the public cloud
  • Combine Private Access with the wider Netskope Security Platform and extend security to cloud apps and web, using a single transparent client
