As cybersecurity innovation has progressed, organizations have invested in multi-edge networking strategies to not only enable their work-from-home employees, but also support workers as they become increasingly dependent on cloud applications and environments to do their jobs. But as these networks expand, the attack surface also increases. Legacy security solutions are unable to keep pace with cloud-based networking innovations and struggle to protect the growing areas of the network dependent on this expanding cloud edge. This has resulted in a growing gap between network functionality and security coverage, exposing organizations to more points of compromise. This also degrades the user experience of those remote workers that still rely on conventional, virtual private network (VPN)-only solutions to access the network.
