The IT environment is increasingly distributed thanks to remote work and the Internet of Things (IoT). Hundreds or even thousands of devices are now accessing the network from outside the corporate data center, making it difficult to ensure performance, reliability and security. These challenges have contributed to the rise of the edge computing model.
In a recent global survey, almost 80 percent of remote workers reported difficulties connecting to company IT resources. Many of these challenges are related to legacy WAN architectures that don’t support today’s connectivity requirements.
