Secure Access and Next-Generation Firewall; Is it time for a divorce?
Remote access and next-generation firewall (NGFW) solutions have evolved significantly since their adoption in the 1990s. Workforce mobility—combined with broad mobile, IoT, SaaS and hybrid IT adoption—has fueled secure access innovations and challenges. COVID-19 has not only amplified remote access capacity, it has also accelerated the move to cloud workloads and permanent work flexibility.
While many companies employ add-on security features within their firewall, have they reached the limit with NGFW capabilities, usability and expenditure? Should organizations pivot to separate secure access platforms that integrate remote, mobile, on-premise and cloud application access?
Join this webinar to learn about architectural shifts (such as the move to the cloud), remote work user experience, and Zero Trust protection mechanisms that offer a strong case for separating secure access functionality from the NGFW. We will also examine deployment, security, performance and management reasons to consider such a move.
