The security landscape has rapidly changed as result of the evolving workspace, ever-new and more sophisticated cybersecurity threats, and continued adoption of cloud infrastructure.
The ramifications for security teams are significant. There are now seemingly endless endpoints to protect, creating greater complexity to manage and less visibility across the IT environment.
To address these challenges, security too must move to the cloud—with the goal of achieving consolidated, converged services that provide secure networking, including for multi-cloud environments. That includes building a secure bridge between access points and the service edge—the cloud, data center, or point of presence where traffic is secured and then forwarded. That access is predicated on identity, whether it’s an individual, device, application, or service.
