Proof Point

In 2020, we had no choice but to use remote access as a strategy to continue our businesses. In the process we proved that productivity can be maintained but our infrastructures were often not ideal to deliver high performance, secure access to remote workers.

In 2021, we need to take the time to look at the resilience of the infrastructure supporting our remote workers.

Remote Access as a Business Continuity Strategy

Extreme weather conditions and global health crisis have taught
enterprises that allowing all their employees to work remotely all the time has become a critical pillar of their BCP (business continuity plans).

Legacy VPN solutions are designed to enable access for a subset of users over short periods of time. They are not designed for 24×7 access to all users that may be needed in such business continuity scenarios.

A Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) based remote access solution has the exact characteristics to overcome such limitations. Provided from a globally distributed, highly scalable cloud platform, it enables continuous access to all employees in the office, on the road, or at home.

The costs associated with the scale and redundancy needed to support BCP with traditional VPN solutions are significantly higher compared to a SASE platform. With legacy solutions, appliances will need to be big enough to support all employees and redundant to guarantee availability in case one of them fails or get disconnected. In comparison, a SASE is able to serve any number of users, anytime, anywhere in the world, and has high-availability built in, offering BCP at a significantly lower cost.
