Driven by the spike in remote access demand due to the global pandemic, organizations now face an urgent need to shift from legacy VPNs to Secure Web Gateways in order to support a modern, cloud-based architecture.
VPN – Virtual Private Network
VPNs are typically used when connecting from a remote location to the IT Infrastructure to establish a private (as well as secure) network communications flow through an unsecured or public Internet connection. The VPN masks your IP Address so that it cannot be easily intercepted by a malicious third party. Also, as a further layer of protection, the data packet payload is encapsulated and wrapped into another data packet.
