It’s a daunting challenge that raises tough questions for enterprises, such as:

  • How can we protect mobile and remote users effectively and efficiently?
  • How can we protect ourselves from the sorts of zero-day threats which are increasingly finding their way into our environment?

And given scarcity of resources, enterprise need capabilities that will address these issues not only with enterprise-class capabilities, but with speed, simplicity and efficiency – terms synonymous with the cloud.
