The VPN is dying, long live zero trust
The traditional VPN is being replaced by a smarter, safer approach to network security that treats everyone as equally untrusted. Learn more about zero trust and how getting started with a zero-trust security model could improve your business's security posture:
The venerable VPN, which has for decades provided remote workers with a secure tunnel into the enterprise network, is facing extinction as enterprises migrate to a more agile, granular security framework called zero trust, which is better adapted to today’s world of digital business.
VPNs are part of a security strategy based on the notion of a network perimeter; trusted employees are on the inside and untrusted employees are on the outside. But that model no longer works in a modern business environment where mobile employees access the network from a variety of inside or outside locations, and where corporate assets reside not behind the walls of an enterprise data center, but in multi-cloud environments.
