EAA architecture

Enterprise Application Access (EAA) makes it easy to secure your application. Attach an EAA connector that connects to your application server, then dial out to the EAA service on TCP port 443, commonly open for outbound communication on most companies' firewalls.

Your internet users connect to the EAA service through a URL they enter in their browsers. They simply provide their credentials to gain access to your applications.

how eaa works for users

The service is architecturally designed based on three major components:

  • Data edge. Provides the data plane between the user and the application, as well as the data security, application performance and optimization components.

  • Management edge. Provides management, logging, reporting, and configuration capabilities. The Enterprise Application Access management and data edges are based on a secure, multi-tenant architecture or a dedicated single-tenant data cloud.

  • Enterprise connector. See connectors. Connectors communicate with your applications (usually on a private subnet) and with the the Enterprise Application Access Cloud (through outbound TLS sessions on port 443) to connect your authorized users with the applications.
