The Universal ZTNA architecture connects users from wherever they are (including campus, branch, and remote locations) to wherever the application is (including cloud service providers, SaaS apps, and data centers). These connections go through the ZTNA application gateway, which verifies user and device identity and posture checks prior to access.
