A number of business issues are accelerating the adoption of secure remote access solutions:
• Demand for more flexibility in the workplace
• Employees need to be untethered from the physical office to stay productive as they balance the demands of work and home. As the boundaries between the two become less defined, employees increasingly need safe and secure access to business resources from outside the corporate network.
• Balance protection of sensitive data with user flexibility
• In the age of mobility, protecting corporate data and resources becomes even more challenging. The remote devices used to access them not only vary in form factor and operating system, but are often employees’ personal devices, outside the control of IT. This is why organizations should secure sensitive information behind the hardened barrier of a corporate network, rather than extend the network to these devices through a VPN.
