Help AG unveils Help AG Secure Private Access Service

Help AG has today launched the Help AG Secure Private Access Service (HPA) – a Zero Trust Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) solution to secure remote workers and ensure control of IT budgets.
To address the new cybersecurity challenges arising due the ‘new normal’, Help AG’s Secure Private Access Service (HPA) service provides a cloud-delivered service, managed 24*7 from Help AG SOC in an affordable per user per month subscription model, designed to suit the needs of both large enterprises and small businesses.

HPA adopts a Zero Trust SASE solution – “trust no user, no device” – for both, remote staff users and third parties to securely access applications from anywhere across the globe. More importantly, for firms in the Middle East, HPA holds the advantage of an in-country cloud platform to reduce latency and comply with data residency. The service enables zero-trust network access for users to connect with applications in their private data centres and applications in any public cloud.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has driven breakneck transformation in IT environments as companies have been forced to shift employees out of controlled network environments and ask them to connect virtually instead,” said Stephan Berner, Chief Executive Officer at Help AG.

“However, many businesses across our region, where working from offices has been the norm for decades, have been caught unprepared during this time and found that their systems are neither scalable nor ready for the security challenges of a large remote workforce. We understand that scaling up VPN licenses have been a real cost challenge as the crisis continues to pressure budgets and limit resources, which is why we are launching Help AG’s Secure Private Access Service (HPA).”

Help AG private access is the first service in the SASE service portfolio.
