🖥️Managing MicroZAccess

Discover the comprehensive breakdown of the components and functionalities of the MicroZAccess Dashboard and App Client.

MicroZAccess consists of two essential components that contribute to its functionality:

  • MicroZAccess Desktop App: establishes and maintains the connection between the user's device and the server. This app is responsible for handling authentication and authorization processes, granting access to users based on the privileges assigned to them. It provides a secure and reliable connection for users to access the network resources. There are two modes of Operation in MicroZAccess Desktop App.

    • Server Mode:

      • Function: In server mode, a device acts as a server that hosts and protects the resources being accessed by clients.

      • Authorization: In server mode, the login process for the MicroZAccess Web Dashboard requires the Device ID and Device Key instead of general user credentials. This is because server mode is intended for devices or servers rather than individual users.

      • Network Connectivity: The server mode component typically resides in the cloud or on-premises, providing a gateway for client connections and establishing secure tunnels or overlays. The server component operates continuously and remains active at all times to facilitate secure communication between clients and resources.

    • Client Mode:

      • Function: In client mode, a component (such as a client application or agent) runs on the user/device side and establishes a secure connection with the server mode component.

      • Authentication: The client mode component authenticates itself to the server mode component, proving its credentials and ensuring trustworthiness.

      • Secure Communication: Once authenticated, the client mode component can securely communicate with the server mode component and access the protected resources.

      • Policy Enforcement: The client mode component may enforce policies on the user/device side, such as verifying device posture or applying local access restrictions, before connecting to the server mode component.

  • MicroZAccess Web Dashboard: serves as a centralized control panel for configuring and monitoring the network. It is accessed through a web browser and provides an intuitive user interface for managing various aspects of the network. Users can configure settings, define access privileges, and manage user accounts through the web dashboard. Additionally, the dashboard offers monitoring capabilities to track the status, activity, and performance of the network. It provides a comprehensive overview of the network's health and enables administrators to make informed decisions regarding network management and security.
