On-premises network

Learn about on-premises network.

A 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. 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.

If the Enterprise Application Access (EAA) IT administrator has enabled on-premises network and configured the network policies within the EAA Management portal, you will see the Trusted network option visible in the Options tab of the EAA Client Settings window, when you Open EAA Client.

Employees of the organization can disable the trusted network. Then all traffic will go from the employee's machine, to EAA Cloud, and then to the application server hosting the enterprise application (black path).
