Hybrid networks, multi-cloud, Internet-of-Things, remote work and digital innovations are all driving more distributed networks and a much more expansive attack surface. The network perimeter that used to be so clearly defined now extends across a spectrum of enterprise facilities, branch offices, homes, other remote locations and multiple clouds. The reality is that security needs to be on the LAN edge, WAN edge and cloud edge. All edges must now be secured, but how do you actually go about doing this?
Understanding the Challenges
The networks of today are distributed and diverse, typically extending across multiple environments, each with their own unique requirements and standards.
