Elastic Security for Business Continuity

Scaling SD-WAN in the new era of remote working

The consequences of the COVID-19 virus outbreak early 2020 have been severe to many businesses. Both customer and employee behaviors change, and secure connectivity become even more crucial for business continuity. Having employees working from home at the same time as cybercriminals try to exploit the situation has increased the need for improved cybersecurity.
In the past companies rented private leased lines or used MPLS solutions to connect their sites and offices. However, these solutions proved to be limiting and costly. They often came with a lock-in to a single internet service provider (ISP). Requirements for flexibility and reduced costs have resulted in usage of virtual private networking (VPN) setup over common internet connections on each site.

Trends such as Cloud, increased use of bandwidth intense applications, increased number of distributed offices and remote workers have introduced packaged solutions called Software Defined—Wide Area Networks—or SD-WAN.

Zero Trust In the Remote Working Era

Elastic security and SD-WAN are fantastic solutions but they demand one important foundation: Zero Trust Security. But what do we mean when we say zero trust security? As the internet was trust all, we realised that real security meant trusting no one… but still allowing access. Zero trust enables administrators to segment and provide services to users by categorizing based on zero trust parameters. And zero trust is provided ideally by elastic security in a SD-WAN architecture, through MSSPs to SMEs and other mid-sized businesses. And this has never been more true than in the days of hyper remote and home working. It’s no longer where you are, it’s who you are.
