There was a time when users connected to remote access VPN to reach applications in the data center, and disconnected to get better internet performance. But when users disconnect, IT loses visibility and the ability to enforce inline security policies. That creates a security problem that’s only gotten worse as applications have shifted to the cloud. Organizations need to find a way to minimize the risk, as users access different types of applications.
Users want a simple, modern experience that allows them to access the apps they need to get their work done, without interference from IT. Organizations need to balance this need with keeping users safe and minimizing the risk to mobile users accessing apps in the cloud.
