January 2017

 

Update:

Akamai Enterprise Application Access (EAA) is designed to provide enterprises with a new way to simplify remote and third-party application access while at the same time improving their organization’s security posture. It is clientless, cloud-based and easy‑to‑manage, and incorporates technology from Akamai’s recent Soha Systems acquisition.

To address remote access requirements for third party contractors, suppliers, partners, and a mobile workforce, Enterprise Application Access is designed to:

  • Offer Broad Application Support for Third Party and Remote Employee Access
  • Ease Deployment
  • Provide Comprehensive User Authentication and Management Capabilities and Granular Access Control
  • Offer Detailed Auditing and Reporting Capabilities 

 

Feature highlights:

  • Offer Broad Application Support for Third Party and Remote Employee Access

    EAA can be used with internal enterprise applications including those accessible to remote employees and contractors via web browsers and/or smart phones as well as with remote desktop sessions or terminal sessions on servers for those users with privileges. Further, the use of natively employed acceleration techniques, including TCP optimization and data compression, can improve the end-user experience.

  • Ease Deployment

    EAA offers a single management interface for applications deployed in multiple locations. Organizations can enable secure access to applications deployed in private or public clouds in 30 minutes or less.

  • Provide Comprehensive User Authentication and Management Capabilities and Granular Access Control

    To help ensure the right users are accessing the right applications, EAA features broad-based enterprise directory integration, Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) and seamless, Single Sign-On (SSO). Further, access control policies can be created and enforced based on user identity, group membership, access method, geolocation and several other factors.

  • Offer Detailed Auditing and Reporting Capabilities

    All access activity to and from applications secured by EAA is logged, archived and available through the solutions’ Management Portal or through a secure API. EAA also allows for data to be streamed into a customer’s SIEM tools of choice.
