Microsoft and Nedscaper MXDR expands security portfolio with Security Service Edge
Breaking news: Microsoft expands it's security portfolio with two new products
Microsoft expands it’s security portfolio with two new products. With endpoint and identity being the perimeter in modern days world, these new network driven products will truely establish an integrated Zero-Trust security architure..
With this announcement Microsoft closes the gap by entering the field of Security Service Edge (SSE), with two new products. The SSE stack can be considered a subset of the Service Edge (SASE) framework, with an architecture focused on security services..
Over the past year the Nedscaper team has extensively cooperated with various Microsoft Engineering teams to deeply understand the potential. As such Security Service Edge (SSE) will be inherently integrated in our Nedscaper Managed Extended Detect and Respond platform (MXDR)..

Microsoft Entra Internet Access is an identity-centric Secure Web Gateway (SWG) for SaaS apps and internet traffic that protects against malicious internet traffic, unsafe or non-compliant content, and other threats from the open internet. For example, you can block access to all external destinations for your high-risk users or non-compliant devices except self-service password reset pages. It also extends the conditions of Conditional Access with network conditions. This would prevent, for example, a stolen access session token from being replayed by requiring a user to be on a “compliant network” to access resources.
Some of you may be familiar with Application Proxy in Microsoft Entra – thousands of customers use it to access private web apps today. We’re excited to introduce an even better solution: an identity centric Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) solution that shares the same application connectors but offers so much more, to help organizations simplify and secure access to any private resource, port, or protocol.
With Private Access, users can quickly and easily connect to private applications, no matter where the user is – in the office or remote – and regardless of where the application is hosted – a local on-premises data center or in any public cloud. You don’t need to make any changes to those applications or resources to add another layer of security controls such as multifactor authentication (MFA), device compliance check, identity protection, identity governance, and single sign-on to any TCP/UDP-based application, including SSH, RDP, SAP, and SMB file shares and other private resources.
