IAM and the Hybrid Workforce
The accelerated move to remote work in 2020 ushered in a new age in access management, with the on-premises VPN perimeter giving way to a perimeterless reality of multiple devices, multiple access points, and users connecting to resources from their own individual networks.
This perimeterless reality isn’t going away, as organizations allow for varying levels of remote work and as business travel resumes. The access management challenges the hybrid workforce presents are formidable:
- How do you secure access for a workforce that’s as likely to be at home or on the road as on-site?
- How do you make accessing resources in the cloud as secure as accessing on-premises resources?
- How do you ensure access is as convenient as possible, to maintain a positive user experience while keeping the IT support burden low?
As you develop strategies to support secure access everywhere people work, check out these guidelines for help.
