Along with the rebranding of Azure AD to Entra ID, Microsoft today expanded the Entra family with two new services: Microsoft Entra Internet Access and Microsoft Entra Private Access. These services will enable secure access to any enterprise app or resource, from anywhere. Find the details below.
Microsoft Entra Internet Access:
Microsoft Entra Internet Access is an identity-centric Secure Web Gateway that protects access to internet, SaaS apps, and Microsoft 365 apps and resources. It extends the Conditional Access policies with network conditions to protect against malicious internet traffic and other threats from the open internet. Microsoft 365 access in Microsoft Entra Internet Access is available in preview today. The preview of capabilities for all internet traffic and SaaS apps and resources will be available later this year.
Microsoft Entra Private Access:
Microsoft Entra Private Access is an identity-centric Zero Trust Network Access that secures access to private apps and resources. It reduces operational complexity and cost by replacing legacy VPNs and offers more granular security. Enterprises can apply Conditional Access to individual applications, and enforce multifactor authentication, device compliance, and other controls to any legacy application without changing the individual applications. Microsoft Entra Private Access is now available in preview.
Microsoft Entra Internet Access and Microsoft Entra Private Access pricing will be revealed when they reach general availability.
