Challenges

Remote Work Era making Security more Challenging

Security is of paramount importance to Enterprises as more of their workers work remotely. Security must be consistent and easy to implement and use.

Centralized Security creating Bottleneck

VPNs and centralized security inspection engines try to enforce security in the Cloud creating a bottleneck, versus bringing the security inspection engines to the application or session. They are difficult to manage, costly to operate and result in added latencies in the network.

Increased Number of Virtual Connections need Simplicity

The drastic increase in number of “Virtual Connections” is making it complex for the IT Administrator to manage and secure.

Data & Application Resources at an Office Branch, not present in Home Branch

Cloud Applications cannot rely on cloud interconnection, cross connects, or SD-WAN Optimization that would have been available from branch offices

Increased use of Remote Work Apps lacking adequate support

Huge increase in usage of Virtual Desktop Interfaces (VDI) or DaaS from the cloud causing poor user experience, solution complexity and high costs.

Increased Video Conferencing straining network resources

A significant increase in Video Conferencing usage further straining the Network
