Today, 50% of employees globally are working outside of their main office headquarters for more than a week. With the coronavirus outbreak, this number is quickly rising, posing an immense challenge for network security teams.
Historically, companies have relied on VPNs to provision remote employees with a secure encrypted connection for remote access to the corporate network. The VPN, however, does not STOP an endpoint from accessing the network. It’s only a means of delivering remote access connectivity for employees off-campus.
What’s needed to remedy these blind spots is a zero-trust NAC solution that can extend awareness, endpoint risk profiling and access controls across all company access layers, including the VPN.
