Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) have been the standard method to provide remote access to private applications and assets since users began moving away from a central office with a direct connection to the data center. However, the network perimeter has evolved and use of the cloud has become increasingly prevalent for business applications. Therefore, certain attributes of VPNs have become huge drawbacks now.
Did you know traditional VPN solutions are obsolete and remote access solutions have evolved beyond them?
The move to the cloud, the popularity of mobility and the sharing economy has created a new normal – the Outside-In Enterprise. Instead of most users being on the inside, most users come in from the outside. Despite this change, the majority of access is still handled by the same technologies used fifteen years ago that allow users overly broad access to network resources.
In today’s fast-paced business world of mobile workplace environments, global ecosystems and cloud-centric organizations, a new approach is required to help organizations provide secure access to their corporate applications. Fortunately, remote access solutions have evolved and new technologies now exist to close the gap of traditional perimeter based access model solutions.
