Legacy network security fails the needs of today’s hybrid workforce

Traditional firewalls, VPNs, and private apps are a massive attack surface.
Attackers can see and exploit vulnerable, externally exposed resources.
Network security approaches allow free lateral movement.
VPNs put users on the network, giving attackers easy access to sensitive data.
Legacy architecture can't scale or deliver a fast, seamless user experience.
VPNs require backhauling, introducing cost and complexity, and are too slow to serve today's remote workforce.
