As organizations implement remote work at scale, a lot of organizations that sized their firewall based on how many branches they have, and not on how many users might need to log in remotely, are facing severe issues related to scalability. As a result, many organizations have had to implement workarounds to enable their remote workers to access the resources they need to get theor jobs done.
Connecting Remote Workers to the Network is Only Half the Challenge
But that is only half the challenge. Connectivity alone isn’t enough. Even for those organizations that have managed to scale out the number of SSL or IPSec VPN connections they can support from remote workers to the core network, getting the business-critical applications those users rely on to run the way they need to run is still a challenge.
