Security is on the move
It’s no secret that the way people work has changed dramatically over the past few years. As highly distributed environments become the norm, security teams are scrambling to protect users, the growing number of device types they carry, and their data. Applications that previously resided on-premises are also on the move, as the volume of roaming workers continues to rise. Branch offices are adopting direct internet access, which is forcing a discussion on how to extend security to protect the edge.
With more users, devices, and applications connecting to the network, the number of risks and vulnerabilities is also increasing — triggering a total transformation in the security landscape.
In this research readout, we explore the complex factors that make remote and roaming user security a challenge, and the emerging solutions best positioned to meet the needs of today’s increasingly distributed enterprise.
