Exploring and Discussing Secure Access Trends and Technologies

Secure Access for Hybrid IT with Pulse Secure

While enterprises embracing cloud technologies is a reality, complete migration to cloud may not be a possibility for organizations quite yet. Companies still like to safeguard and hold critical data within their data centers.  The trend is towards Hybrid IT and distribution of resources between enterprise data centers and different cloud vendors. According to Solarwinds IT trends report, cloud computing and hybrid IT will remain a top priority for IT professionals for the next five years. The analyst firm Gartner predicts that by 2020, 90 percent of organizations will adopt hybrid infrastructure management capabilities.

Though the benefits of adopting these new technologies are multifold, it also opens up a new spectrum of security challenges. A cloud specific solution lacks visibility into enterprise data centers and vice versa with enterprise only solutions.
