Establishing a Logical Perimeter The Evolution of Network Security
The boundaries of the modern enterprise have undergone massive changes, and these shifts are causing IT, security and networking teams to fundamentally reevaluate the way they think about and manage the network. It is no secret that near-universal Internet connectivity has changed society and user behavior along with it. Users simply assume that they will be able to connect and work (or not) from anywhere, whether using their corporate laptop or increasingly popular platforms such as Android and iOS devices. From the end-user’s perspective being inside or outside the walls of the enterprise is seen as largely incidental. However, while connectivity has become near universal, enterprise security has not, and when users leave the corporate network, they are also leaving behind the enterprise best-practices and best-of-breed security technologies that are the heart of corporate security.
