      • Prevent threats while browsing on the internet.
      • Access geo-specific content (Q&A/marketing).
      • Ensure IP address masking.
      • Monitor VPN usage in an organization and generate reports.
      • Ensure that employees are connected to VPN at all times.

      Core plan

      Opt for the Core plan when you require comprehensive internet security and network access control solutions. This plan provides enhanced device visibility within your organization's network, enabling quick detection and response to rule violations. Tailored for those with advanced cybersecurity needs, Core offers essential features for internet security, allowing you to manage and restrict user access to specific online content, ports, and protocols. It also includes key elements for network access control, such as cloud tool allowlisting and team-based organization segmentation.

      Similar to the Lite plan, Core subscribers enjoy lightning-fast 24/7 customer support and, additionally, are assigned a dedicated account manager for even more efficient responses to your organization's requirements.

      So, take the Core plan if you need:

      • Allowlist specific cloud tools with fixed IP addresses.
      • Segment network access to hybrid-cloud resources by teams.
      • Restrict access to content categories or specific apps, ports, and protocols.
      • Monitor devices in the organization's network by predefined security rules.

Compared to Lite and Core plans, this exclusive package includes Cloud Firewall (FWaaS), Device Posture Security, Browser Extension, and more, all with trusted reliability and 24/7 priority support.

      In a nutshell, the Premium plan is ideal for those who require to:

      • Do more granular network segmentation than by Teams.
      • Establish a connection between remote devices.
      • Establish remote connection to on-site networks.
      • Restrict access to the network for non-compliant devices.
      • Launch NordLayer on a browser level only.

      Custom plan

      Select the Custom plan when you need to enable every way of working, overcoming challenges of existing technical arrangements and your company's work model. This customizable solution is tailored for bespoke enterprise requirements and designed to fit unique large business network infrastructure. For an unparalleled experience, premium 24/7 live support is available for custom technical implementation and real-time assistance.

      Note regarding remote work:

      If you need to access your work resources remotely, ensure that they are accessible through remote means. This can be achieved by either utilizing port-forwarding on your office router or leveraging cloud infrastructure. To enhance remote accessibility further, consider obtaining a dedicated server with a fixed IP address (mandatory from the Core plan). This will enable you to allowlist (whitelist) the specific IP address, granting access to everything necessary for you and your team to work effectively and efficiently.
