Faced with business demands for Office 365, Skype, video etc., all requiring additional bandwidth, a need for heightened network security, wider access to cloud-based apps, and a more mobile workforce, often preferring to use their own devices at home, something’s just got to change. Networks are becoming unmanageable!
For large organisations, in particular those that have grown through a series acquisitions and mergers, corporate networks have become very complex. So, when you come to address a whole new set of demands from your network in terms of performance, whilst your security perimeter is ever increasing, a huge amount of effort is required to manage this ever-increasing complexity.
Typically, you’ll have a whole series of contracts with service providers, all with varying contract end dates; you’ll have devices everywhere across the organisation with no real inventory of what’s where…and that’s before you even get to consider access and ID issues!
