Cloud computing and low-cost public internet access have changed the way applications are deployed and managed. In the past, organizations relied on legacy WAN architectures like MPLS to deliver secure connectivity between remote offices and applications hosted in corporate data centers. Legacy WAN architectures however can make the process of deploying new apps, provisioning new policies or making policy changes an arduous task. Newer connectivity options like the public internet are widely available and easy to set up but increase exposure to cyber threats.
