Application Gating

Twingate enables secure access to SaaS apps and private services where IP address-based access or whitelisting is required or supported. Common use cases include connecting to third-party services or apps that restrict access by IP address, securing staging servers, and deploying a lightweight cloud access security broker (CASB).

Benefits of using Twingate for app gating

  • Extend the security of SaaS apps. Twingate allows you to apply a range of security controls (including device controls and multi-factor authentication) to SaaS apps that don’t natively support those controls.
  • Split tunnel architecture for best performance. Twingate intelligently routes only network traffic bound for the IP address-restricted resource over a deployed Connector, without impacting network performance for the employee or bottlenecking traffic through a company VPN gateway.
  • Easy to deploy, easy to connect. End users can quickly download, install, and use the Twingate client on a wide range of platforms without any technical knowledge or help from IT teams. Admins can centrally administer Twingate from a web-based admin console.
  • Flexible Connector options. Designate static IP addresses that are Twingate-managed Connectors, or deploy Connectors in private infrastructure with company-specific IP addresses.
  • Compliance built-in. Download or export audit logs to monitor access activity.
