Most security teams today face the same challenge: how to protect the growing number of roaming users, devices and software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications without increasing complexity or compromising performance for end users. In addition, how can security investments that have already been made continue to be leveraged? In addition, users in remote and branch offices need the same network performance and security as users in central locations.
IT must defend users against many threats regardless of where they work or what device they use, including malware infections, command-and-control callbacks, phishing attacks, denial-of-service attacks, unauthorized access and unauthorized use.
