And that was even before the pandemic. But with so many remote workers, IoT devices, and multiple clouds, it’s hard to balance keeping everyone productive while keeping the network secure.
According to Forrester, 53% of newly remote workers want to stay remote. So, the hybrid workplace is here to stay. But with remote work accelerating the move to cloud, how do you ensure the network’s security extends from edge-to-cloud?
With more devices being connected to the network – some beyond IT’s control – how can you get away from manually generating VLANs that create confusion and introduce risk?
With attacks getting more sophisticated, your security needs to be best-of-breed. How do you adopt cloud-based-security services as part of you overall Zero Trust/SASE framework without being locked into a single vendor?
Now you can embrace the business and operational advantages of cloud while maintaining high levels of security. Here’s how.
It’s important to use a network that has full visibility, control, and enforcement with a built-in foundation for Zero Trust and SASE (secure access secure edge) frameworks.
Zero Trust ensures that the same controls applied to campus or branch networks, also apply to the home or remote worker. That means no more manually generated VLANs that are confusing and risky. And real-time identity-based access control consistently protects the network from edge-to-cloud.
As more applications move to the cloud, organizations need to think about extending their current security architecture into the cloud without redoing what they currently have (and increasing risk). It’s best to pair network-enforced, identity-based access control and tight integration with leading cloud security providers like Zscaler, Netskope, Check Point, Palo Alto Networks, and others.
As remote workforces accelerate cloud migration, network security requirements need to shift. Forrester’s Introducing the Zero Trust Edge Model for Security & Network Services, shows you how.
Aruba ESP (Edge Services Platform) increases protection levels while simplifying operations by applying the principles of edge-to-cloud security, featuring a built-in foundation for Zero Trust and SASE frameworks.
