      IDENTITY and MFA (Multi-Factor Authentication) 

      You can now integrate directly with Azure AD and Google Workspaces to provide and enforce user-level policies across your tenants. Users and Groups will be synced between your identity provider and the Todyl portal, streamlining policy management with a single point of control. No identity provider? No problem. Todyl also enables the native creation of users and groups in the portal.

      Once identities are established, users can be authenticated via MFA through Azure, Google Workspaces, Todyl, or DUO. This allows partners to restrict access to specific authenticated users via user-based Firewall rules.  

      Logged-in users are displayed on the devices page along within SIEM, helping to provide further transparency as well.

    TRAFFIC POLICIES and BYOD (Split Tunneling)

    Traffic Policies provide the ability to control what traffic is sent to the SGN. Full proxy policies will inspect all external and SGN-related traffic. BYOD (Split Tunneling) policies will limit inspection to SGN-related traffic, and still receive the added security of Todyl's Secure DNS. 

    In addition to traffic control, devices can be configured to start paused, allowing users to initiate the connection when necessary.

    Easily create shortcuts for user convenience, providing easy access to commonly used resources. Shortcuts integrate with Identity as well, allowing you to display specific shortcuts to authenticated users.

Traffic policies can be combined with LAN ZeroTrust and Identity to tightly control traffic flows and enhance ZeroTrust. Partners now have control over routing internet traffic locally or via the SGN, segmenting LAN traffic, and only allowing certain traffic flows once a user has authenticated. This extremely powerful combination of controls can help combat today's greatest threats.  

For example, easily provide home or shared devices RDP or Remote Access to office devices with ease via a BYOD (Split Tunneling) Traffic Policy & Identity. This will leave internet traffic uninspected, while ensuring security of internal traffic connecting to business assets.
