What is device posture?

Employees who enter the workplace or connect to your network have their own devices with them. Phones, tablets, laptops, etc. Attackers can target those devices and use them to compromise the security of your organization. Before and during access, Windows, Android, MacOS, iOS, and Linux devices are examined by NordLayer’s Device Posture Monitoring rules, and if there is a mismatch between policy and posture, you are notified.

Stay one step ahead with sentry-like Zero Trust measures

Device posture security increases compliance to ZTNA and enforces security more effectively. Zero Trust reduces the risk of potential attacks by limiting access to specific applications and also by blocking lateral movement should a threat enter the system.
