Overview Cisco Public Cisco Umbrella: Secure Internet Gateway (SIG) Essentials Package The new normal - decentralized networks Exploding SaaS usage. Proliferating remote locations. Swelling ranks of roaming workers. It's the new normal, and it's driving a transformation in enterprise security and networking. The wide-scale use of cloud applications has become fundamental to business operations. New research from ESG notes that 86% of organizations today are extensively or moderately using public cloud computing services (Saas or IaaS). 1 Traditionally, organizations routed internet traffic from branch offices back to a central location to apply security. Yet in today's branch offices with high cloud application use, this centralized security approach has become impractical due to the high cost and performance issues of backhauling traffic. Many remote offices find ways to go direct to the internet for convenience and performance benefits. Eighty-five percent of remote users reported that they sometimes go direct to the internet. 2 For these reasons, many organizations are adopting decentralized networking approaches guided by SD-WAN to optimize remote location performance. Eighty percent of organizations extensively or selectively use SD-WAN today. 1 This enables more efficient direct-internet-access (DIA), but also opens new security challenges.
