    Private and Shared Gateways

      Article Summary

      Private Gateways

      Private Gateways (or servers) are the core component of the Harmony SASE SASE platform, as they are the mediator between company resources (that you won't necesarily want to expose to the internet), and the end users (whose traffic you'd like to encrypt). Connecting to a private network (consisting of one or several Private Gateways) enables you to securely connect to any company resource as well as browse the internet without worrying about your data getting stolen or tracked.

      Keep in mind

      Every Harmony SASE workspace must consist of at least one Private Gateway.

      Shared Gateways

      Harmony SASE provides access to more than 100 Gateways spread in various locations across the globe: Austria, Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, USA East, USA West, and The United Kingdom.

      I am a Member of a Workspace, but I can't connect to a Public Gateway. What can I do?

      Account administrators can deny access to certain features for a specific group of users or for the entire team. Click here to read more.

      As opposed to Private Gateways, these Gateways' outgoing IP addresses are shared among several accounts simultaneously.

      What is the advantage of connecting to a Public Gateway?

      While connecting to Public Gateway does not enable access to your internal resources, it will still encrypt your traffic and help you browse securely, as well as significantly enhance performance and speed if your physical location is far from your Private Gateway location.
