Read this ebook to understand the symptoms that show your firewall might not be fit for zero trust, including:

  • Poor visibility and performance when inspecting encrypted traffic at scale
  • Inability to stop ransomware attacks or prevent lateral movement of threats
  • High risk of internet-borne infections spreading across your hybrid cloud
  • Traffic congestion and complex routing when securing a remote workforce
