how it works?
A lightweight agent is installed on each device. This is available via the app stores and can be deployed through a variety of simple methods, such as by using a UEM/EMM solution. This client acts as a sensor, gathering rich data on the device itself and the networks it connects to. It also acts as a context-aware controller for the NetMotion SDP solution, applying policy actions to every device at the endpoint.
Depending on the use-case, IT teams may wish to use the VPN, or tunnel traffic as part of the NetMotion SDP solution. This tunnel is unlike any you may know, and can be configured as always-on, per-app or on a contextual basis. Using a blend of different patented technologies, connections are enhanced – including improved video and audio, prioritization of mission-critical apps and both tunnel and session persistence, meaning networks stay resilient even during roaming or total disconnects.
The NetMotion controller may allow traffic to go straight to the resource or web destination. In some instances, such as during poor or insecure network conditions, or when accessing enterprise resources, traffic is securely sent to the NetMotion gateway. This gateway manages access to all destinations, including enterprise resources. Access is limited to only the resource the user needs, preventing lateral movement. The gateway keeps applications ‘dark’, unavailable to anyone but those that have been approved.
