Eight months into the pandemic, organizations are still establishing best practices for collaboration and connectivity with their increasingly dispersed workforce. Prior to transitioning fully remote, companies were comfortable tunneling all of their traffic from remote workers back through the VPN.
Over the past decade of cloud migration, organizations have learned that the “one cloud fits all” mentality rarely suits the operational and budget requirements of the modern enterprise. While we’ve seen many companies accelerate their cloud adoption to support remote work initiatives, it’s important to keep in mind that many companies still choose to operate applications in the data center as well.
Over the past few years, it’s easy to see how much cloud computing has expanded and evolved. Every time we think we’ve reached peak adoption, new research comes out that shows us all there are still more companies just starting or planning to start their cloud computing journey.
Organizations are increasingly digital. Not only do they have data stored on on-premise infrastructure, but more often than not, they’re operating across public and private cloud and working with multiple service providers. While this complexity is advancing how organizations do business, it also makes networks that much more susceptible to downtime – whether that’s because of human error or security issues.
