Remote Work Considerations – SaaS Defense in the Wild West - Evolve IP - ContactCenterWorld.com Blog

Remote Work Considerations – SaaS Defense in the Wild West

Having provided virtual desktop and infrastructure solutions for over 11 years Evolve IP has seen a massive shift take place in the way IT provides applications to end users.  11 years ago, customers were utilizing 90% client-server based software. Meaning companies would acquire a server, whether physical or virtual, install the application and then install the client on each user’s desktop.   

Now, fast forward to today and I would argue that the number is down to around 25%. So, where are all those applications moving? It should be no surprise when I write Software as a Service (SaaS).  Companies like Salesforce.com, ADP, Concur, Outreach are all delivered via a browser with no software to install. 

For the purposes of this post, I’ll be using the term “before” to describe how applications were delivered to end users in the “old days” and “after” to describe how applications are delivered now.  Our first post looked at the changing role of Active Directory and today we’re going to see how SaaS has caused IT to play Defense in the Wild West. 

Up until the explosion of SaaS, the industry best practice was what IT referred to as “defense in depth”.  At its most basic level, this meant a firewall at the edge of the network, then some sort of monitoring at the network level for traffic that may not appear legitimate, and then finally all sorts of different security tools at the server or desktop level. Basically, build big castle walls and keep the bad guys out. 

 Today, the new corporate network doesn’t stop at HQ’s walls.  It also doesn’t stop at the VPN connections.  It’s everywhere.  Users need to access resources from different SaaS providers around the globe and those connections are all public.   

 For corporate assets, IT still maintains anti-virus (AV) and other protections on those devices which certainly helps.  Some companies have turned to Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASB) in an effort put a man in the middle act as a relay to protect the enterprise while enabling a more flexible environment for their employees. Unfortunately, to date, these solutions have proved very costly and complicated to implement. 

Remote Work Considerations – Securing the New Corporate Network

Evolve IP has developed a comprehensive solution that addresses the needs of the IT and the business. Workspaces enable mobility and security and give employees the tools they need to do their jobs in ways that make them more productive than ever.
