Protecting the data center is no longer enough

Users are highly distributed

Employees browse the internet and conduct business from many locations, using company owned and personal devices. This increases the likelihood of a computer or smart phone encountering malware or falling victim to data exfiltration.

Employees often work off-network

Users may connect to the internet directly to accomplish whatever work is possible without accessing the network. When traffic isn’t routed to the data center, businesses operating on a hub and spoke model lose visibility as well as their ability to enforce security policy. Without these guardrails, the possibility of a security incident becomes more likely as employees freely surf the net, click links, and download files without the analysis provided by a perimeter security device.

Shadow IT is a growing concern

Employees often use unsanctioned SaaS or cloud-based applications and may be storing sensitive corporate or customer data within them. Security administrators need visibility into which applications are being utilized so security and sharing policies may be applied.
