In this new “work from anywhere” world, ensuring that users can quickly and securely connect to any cloud application they need is critical. As today’s modern workforce continues to be hybrid or remote, organizations must rethink their approach to network security. There’s no denying that organizations must ensure their network and security strategy can provide secure connectivity for all employees – regardless of location. This can be tricky, as on-premises legacy appliances were never meant to support today’s modern remote workforce. This is why many organizations are moving to the cloud for improved user experience and productivity.
Traditionally in an appliance-based world, network traffic is backhauled through VPNs to the corporate data center which results in overwhelmed infrastructure and bottlenecked throughput. The result is massive productivity loss as remote workers rely on fast connections to online applications.
A cloud-first purpose-built containerized solution can provide both network security and robust connectivity for organizations. The iboss Cloud Platform allows organizations to offload network traffic by allowing access to applications directly in the cloud. With iboss, organizations can secure user access to any application on any device, from any location.
