The Challenges for Enterprise IT

To support the shift to an anywhere workforce, organizations need to adopt cloud, embrace mobility, and deliver a superior user experience—all while protecting their users and business against emerging security threats.

Inefficient Cloud/SaaS Access

Legacy network architectures for branch and remote access are inefficient for hybrid multi-cloud and SaaS


Poor Application Quality

Unreliable or inconsistent application delivery to the end user’s desktop, along with limited analytics capabilities

Compromised Security

Incoherent security for branch and remote worker scenarios creates risk of security breaches or data loss


Operational Complexity & Expenses

Operations and support complexities of separate networking and security solutions increases costs and slows problem resolution
