Is Using VPN Dead?

A lot of people ask me, “Is VPN still a viable technology? Or is using VPN dead?” And I will tell you that VPNs are not dead, but the way you probably use VPNs is probably obsolete. VPN has been replaced with a lot of new technologies, one of which is what we call Zero Trust.

What Is Zero Trust?

Zero Trust is just a new way to run a VPN that puts more security protocols around that Virtual Private Network (VPN). But it also allows you to take the user interface out because one of the biggest complaints we hear from VPN users, the end user specifically, is that they have to go through these extra hoops to get to their data or get to their systems.

How Does a Zero Trust Access Tool Work?

With a Zero Trust Network Access tool or a similar tool, we take the end user out of the equation. We tie that back to the equipment, we tie it back to network authentication, and we tie it back to automation and artificial intelligence. So that when the end user opens up their system, and has authenticated to their system, the Zero Trust tool, which is really a VPN tool with a new skin on it, automatically connects them back to where they need to be.

It provides the same level of security and the same efficacy for data protection for you as a leader, but it provides far fewer touches for the end users. This efficiency leads to far happier customers at the end of the day.
