Remote Access for Contractors
Zero-Trust Instead of Excessive Trust
Easily enable third party remote access for contractors, partners and customers to the applications they need while limiting the risks associated with excessive privileges. Upgrade from VPN and adopt a zero-trust security model that offers segmented, verified, audited access for every user.
The zero-trust architecture restricts access for Remote Contractor A to one application in the data center and one in the cloud, whereas Remote Contractor B can only access one application at HQ.

Network access for remote contractors is a high-risk use case that traditional VPNs were not designed to address. Meta Networks’ zero-trust network lets you create an identity- and context-based boundary around any application, and enforce a customized policy for each remote contractor’s device. Unauthorized resources are simply invisible, significantly reducing the potential surface for attack.
Define granular security policies and associate contractors with specific applications and services, rather than providing access to entire network segments. Every user-device has a unique identity that is authenticated, authorized and verified for every packet in real-time. Meta NaaS (Network as a Service) integrates with IdP and SSO solutions and leverages certificates and a variety of second factors.
Easy Onboarding and Management
Manage access policies to all enterprise resources in the data center or the cloud, from a single cloud console and eliminate the complexities of VPN configuration. Easily onboard new remote contractors, assign policies based on roles, and send a link to enable application access from a contractor’s browser (for unmanaged clients), or a link to install the Meta client.
Consistent, clientless user experience
Provide contractors a superior user experience - whether using the Meta client or a browser. Compared to conventional VPN, access is simple and transparent, from anywhere in the world.
“Meta Networks enabled us to set up a smart system for connecting our sales teams to our customers' data in a secure, easy to use, and extremely flexible way. Thanks to the powerful APIs, we could automate our workflows and provide a very simple interface for our global sales team.” Ramon Snir, Senior Developer, Dynamic Yield
With Meta NaaS, we are centrally managing a zero-trust network that covers all of our applications and data, and our employees, contractors and customers. We’re growing quickly and the solution is robust and flexible enough to grow with us - it’s easy to onboard new customers and assure the granular security that we need.” Amir Mehler, Cross-Tech TL, Via Transportation, Inc.
“Compared to managing VPNs in each of our data centers, the Meta NaaS solution is much simpler and more convenient both for both our IT team and for our users.” Moshe Magal, IT Team Leader, MyHeritage
“Previously we limited access to our AWS-based applications because we were concerned about the risks inherent with VPCs. With Meta’s SDP solution, we could provide access to the application and keep the rest of the VPC isolated, ensuring the proper level of protection for our applications. It was quick and easy to onboard.” James Rutt, CIO, Dana Foundation
