Traditional perimeters are complex and increase risk
The traditional perimeter, or DMZ, often consists of multiple hardware and software components, as well as a variety of vendors across access, IAM, delivery, performance, and more.
In addition, this traditional perimeter typically needs to be repeated for redundancy and high availability across regions and data centers.
Multiply that by several global locations, and the potential for multiple providers, and the complexity challenges become clear.
A cloud perimeter is simple and reduces risk
The cloud perimeter uses the Internet as its core network, can be consumed as a service in the cloud, and embraces “verify and never trust” (i.e., zero trust) as a core principle.
Why adopt a cloud perimeter?
Enterprises must embrace a cloud perimeter to successfully transform, to provide value to the business, and to enable innovation. Additionally, they will reap the agility and simplicity benefits of the cloud for enterprise IT and security.
