“VPNs often end up creating new security problems”
Virtual private networks (VPN), which were originally developed to enable remote workers to connect into the corporate network back when only a fraction of the workforce was working, created new network security headaches when used at a previously unheard of scale with organizations switched to Remote Work overnight during this pandemic. Although VPNs are considered as a quick way for the remote users to get to internal applications, they are slow for users, offer poor security, and are difficult to manage and scale as well. In an interview with Soma Tah, Forcepoint Chief Product Officer Nico Popp elaborates on how zero trust network access (ZTNA) solutions rethink network security functions and are designed to solve the challenges posed by the legacy VPNs.
