Many organizations implemented remote work policies almost overnight once the pandemic hit and forced companies to shut down their traditional office environments. As employees shifted to accessing corporate resources remotely via VPNs and leveraging cloud applications for better productivity, both bandwidth usage and encrypted traffic volume increased dramatically.
This created a seismic shift in how organizations needed to approach network security. The castle and moat approach to network security was no longer effective, as on-premises appliances, including on-prem firewalls and web proxies, were never intended to support a remote workforce. Moving network security to the cloud enables employees to connect directly to all their cloud apps without the need for a VPN.
Building your roadmap for the move to the Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) cloud offers many benefits. It provides your organization with a path to reducing network and security cost and complexity, while increasing security and connectivity to give your users a better experience, regardless of location.
In the following weeks, iboss will host the webinar series “5 Steps to your SASE Journey” and Tim Roddy, iboss VP of Product Marketing, will outline what organizations should consider when migrating to a SASE platform.
In this first webinar, Tim will dive deeper into the first step of any SASE journey: taking inventory of your current network security footprint and investments. In this session, attendees will learn:
- The need for inventory
- Why a short- and long-term plan is important
- How to identify all the assets and cost them out
