Enterprise Application Access (EAA) is a simple way to secure and deliver your applications that run behind a firewall or in a public cloud. It's a secure remote access service that lets you protect your applications from Internet threats while giving easy access to your contractors, partners, vendors, and employees. They connect to the EAA service through a URL they enter in their browser, provide their credentials, and gain access to your applications.
EAA delivers access to applications, not the entire network. With EAA, users don't access applications directly—instead, apps are hidden from the Internet and public exposure. A unique dual-cloud architecture closes all inbound firewall ports while providing authenticated end-users with access to only their own special applications.
EAA delivers clientless access to browser-based (HTTP) applications and lets an organization secure access to remote desktop (RDP) and Secure Shell (SSH) applications.
You can use the EAA Client software deployed on end-users machines for securing non-browser client-access applications running locally on the end user’s computer, which communicate over the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), User Datagram Protocol (UDP), or both protocols.
EAA Device Posture is a key feature of EAA for user access to enterprise applications, and a valuable component of the Akamai Zero Trust model. It complements and enhances existing EAA authentication, authorization, access control rules, and reporting capabilities, providing additional context about the device posture and a device risk assessment to better inform application access policy. Device Posture captures signal data from devices in the environment. Using this information, IT administrators can augment the existing application access control lists (ACLs) with rules that account for the device posture and associated risks. Device Posture helps to ensure that the devices accessing applications satisfy the necessary security requirements.
Enterprise Center is the primary management portal for Enterprise Application Access (EAA). It has been designed to deliver a modern look-and-feel of Akamai Control Center that simplifies and streamlines the administration experience.
This guide provides an overview and instructions for administrators.
You can log in to Enterprise Center from Akamai Control Center.
For your first setup, you need:
