Move beyond remote access VPNs
What is a Cloud VPN?
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.
What is a Cloud VPN?
Give users a safe, modern experience
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.
Protect users in the cloud
Why traditional approaches don’t work
Remote access VPNs provide safe connections to the data center, but aren’t optimized for the cloud.
Proxy/secure web gateways can protect users when they’re not connected to a VPN, but they’re primarily aimed at web content.
CDNS filtering can protect users from known bad websites, but it doesn’t perform content inspection.
Software-defined perimeter products generally don’t provide any content inspection, exposing organizations to threats.
