It has forced enterprises to adapt in order to maintain security but also ensure employees can continue to work. While some cloud-focused companies were prepared to make the quick transition, others have not fared so well, says Sudip Banerjee, director of Transformation Strategy in Asia-Pacific with Zscaler.
Banerjee says some companies have relied on VPN gateways for remote employees to log onto the company network. But scaling up VPN infrastructure to accommodate a huge increase in users is very difficult, he says.
Other organizations have moved cloud security solutions, which sits in between users and software-as-service applications such as Office365 or internal applications. Those companies are able to broker those connections safely, he says.
In this video interview in advance of a virtual roundtable, Banerjee discusses:
- How companies have adapted their models for accessing apps;
- What types of threats enterprises are facing;
- How enterprises can reduce risks around remote workers.
Sudip Banerjee is director of Transformation Strategy in Asia-Pacific with Zscaler. Before joining Zscaler, Banerjee worked as group CTO for Reliance Capital.
