3 Reasons VPNs Are Being Left Behind in 2020

2020 shined a light on many of the shortfalls of VPN. The increase in remote work led to challenges with scale, impacted user experience, and even drew the eyes of threat actors. VPN exploits rose to an all-time high through social engineering (i.e. Twitter) and ransomware attacks (ie. NetWalker, REvil, and Maze ransomware), and now nearly 70 percent of network and security leaders are looking to embrace zero trust alternatives over traditional VPN. (Cybersecurity Insiders, 2021)
