Securing the Remote Workforce with Cisco

Organizational security and networking are facing a significant transformation with the increased demand of securing the remote workforce. Wide-scale adoption of cloud applications, an increase in remote workers, and expansion of branch offices has rendered the centralized, on-premises security model impractical. The convenience, cost savings, and performance benefits of going direct to the internet is driving a new decentralized approach to networking. Yet with change comes risk and a new set of security challenges. Organizations require a broader set of protection that not only improves security, but simplifies management to ensure the expanded and remote workforce remains secure.

Enterprise Strategy Group indicates the explosive growth in Network Security Complexity can be attributed to: a growing attack surface, an increasing workload, and evolving threats and vulnerabilities.
