The global health pandemic has forced organizations to review how they provide remote workers access to IT resources. Existing solutions based on virtual private networks (VPN) don't always scale to meet the demand. The complexity and capacity limitations of VPN networks can also lead to a poor end-user experience. Additionally, as criminal gangs target remote workers more frequently, new security challenges present themselves that traditional remote access solutions weren't designed to solve.
To address this new reality, organizations are turning to zero-trust networks. Zero-trust is a security concept where every user and connection should be verified before accessing IT resources, regardless of where the connection originates. This allows organizations to publish resources on the public Internet without deploying complex VPN solutions that are difficult to manage and limit network performance. By verifying identity and other conditions, like IP address and device health, organizations can improve security.
In this webinar, Security MVP, Russell Smith, will show attendees how zero-trust networks can replace VPN solutions and how they differ from DirectAccess and Windows 10 Always-On VPN. You will learn how to implement a zero-trust solution in your organization and the technologies Microsoft and other vendors have available for providing secure remote access to users.
