With so many people working remotely and not sitting behind firewalls at corporate offices, networks and company information are at an all-time high risk for security threats like hackers, phishing, viruses, and scams.
Distributing the workload for firewalls and VPN servers is key— but since entire companies are working remotely and externally accessing the company network, most IT departments are not ready for the load that their on-site Firewall and VPN servers and processors will incur. Cloud-based firewall and VPN services with WiredIQ, Cato Networks, Perfect Packet, QOS Networks, TPx, AT&T, and AppGate (Cyxtera) are great solutions.
While most business-owned VPNs aren’t meant to service an entire organization, these providers have the infrastructure to handle the increase in capacity. With cloud-based security solutions you can get services that are scalable, high-performing, and with high availability.
