Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) have been the de facto solution for enabling secure user access to enterprise applications for 20+ years. During this time, the core VPN security model has not fundamentally changed; a VPN is used to connect remote assets – users, databases or whole offices – to an organization’s secured network. VPNs are less expensive than a dedicated leased line, making them attractive to large and small enterprises.
But VPNs have several shortcomings, inherent problems and management complexities, many of which become more pronounced now that the cloud, mobility, sharing economy and Outside-In Enterprise dominate the landscape. From providing excessively wide network access, to the inability to control user identities, to providing inadequate solutions for third-party access, VPNs are not as easy, flexible or as secure as you think. For end users, VPNs can be an unreliable, clunky irritation. It’s finally time for enterprises rethink their reliance on this aging technology. This white paper outlines the five reasons why.
