On-premises network detection

Learn to create an on-premises network, configure network policies, and allow the end user to disable the trusted network.

An on-premises network is a network within the organization that can be securely accessed by only the employees. It is like the corporate IT network which can be trusted. On the contrary, a public network can be accessed by any user and is an untrusted network. EAA Client allows secure access to configured applications by tunneling traffic through the user’s machine. This is beneficial, when the employees are in a public network. However, when they are within the corporate network perimeter, this increases the delay. The reason is there is an additional hop from the application server to the Enterprise Application Access management POP, and then to the employee's machine (black path).

Instead, the application is directly accessed from the application server by the employee (green path), when he is within the on-premises network. The Enterprise Application Access (EAA) IT administrator can configure the trusted network policies within the EAA management portal, so that when the employee's machine with the EAA Client application, satisfies the policy, the employee has direct access to the enterprise application in the application server.

On-premises network can be enabled inside the identity provider used by the EAA Client access application. The EAA IT administrator can also configure the rules or trusted network policies which determine whether employees are in a trusted network (on-premises) or in a public network (off-premises), and provide access to the organization’s secure applications.

An employee of the organization can disable trusted network on his machine, even if the EAA IT administrator has enabled it in the identity provider. All the traffic will then go through EAA cloud (black path).
