In the old days, employees connect to the corporate network protected by well-defined parameters. Branch offices maintained expensive private network connection to the data center, while remote worker connects via VPN. Heavy administrative tasks were needed for on-prem maintenance, making matters inefficient and ineffective.
Digital transformation is inevitable
In today’s world, people want to get connected seamlessly anytime, anywhere. Internet traffic is increasing drastically, while organisations continue to adopt cloud application and storage.
As more workloads operate on the cloud, allowing users to connect directly to the cloud greatly improves efficiency & productivity. This also means that datacenters’ visibility and control become more challenging. More connected devices with IoT translate to a bigger attack surface area exposed to vulnerabilities.
How do you then find a balance between what worked before and what needs to happen to succeed in the new present? How should you organize work for a distributed workforce?
Digital transformation comes with risks
