Datawiza is a Campbell, USA-based organization and the first company to provide a no-code platform for executing authorization and authentication for applications and APIs has come up with an announcement about its Datawiza Platform, Free version. The platform is now available and the industry’s only Identity Access Management (IAM)-agnostic and environment-agnostic solution for applying Zero Trust Application Access (ZTAA).

The platform has been designed for teams that don’t need execution and support services, the free-forever platform delivers the entire Datawiza platform to safeguard up to 25 users and three applications, that run against up to two different identity providers, Azure AD. The Datawiza Business license is also available for companies that have larger teams with more composite requirements.

Datawiza’s viewpoint to zero trust: Safeguard applications

John Kindervag first introduced the concept of zero trust in 2010, and today, most enterprises recognize it as a security requirement. To achieve zero trust, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all strategy, though. Building a tunnel from the corporate network to the cloud is necessary for one well-liked method called Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA). Another strategy, ZTAA, secures specific applications without altering the network architecture, offering a quicker and more affordable route to zero trust.

Dr. Canming Jiang, Co-Founder, and CEO of Datawiza, stated, “As cyberattacks increase in frequency and severity, corporate boards are demanding an immediate move to a zero-trust environment. Organizations are running into roadblocks, including projects that take too long, cost too much, introduce complexity, and don’t provide sufficient access controls for unmanageable applications. With Datawiza’s no-code solution for ZTAA, companies can test, validate and deploy zero trust application protection in minutes, while maintaining their current IT investments and without inadvertently introducing additional security risks through unnecessary coding. Today’s announcement eliminates the final barrier to zero trust, turning ‘low cost’ into ‘no cost.’ Many security executives are telling me about their struggle to achieve zero trust with network-first implementations, and business users complain of poor network performance.”
