Most users utilize Wi-Fi to connect most of the time they’re on their endpoint devices. when away from the corporate or personal network. This makes Wi-Fi the most common entry point for hackers. Wi-Fi is a major target not only because of its prevalence but of the ease of breaking into Wi-Fi networks and hacking data, especially public networks at coffee shops, hotels and airports. Stolen data could contain highly confidential personal or corporate information leading to major attacks, including ransomware.
Many users and enterprises depend on legacy VPNs for protection but there are issues with this outdated technology. VPNs are frustrating for individuals to use which makes them challenging for mobile/service providers or enterprises to keep their customers connected and protected. Why? A legacy VPN is always on which impacts battery usage and device performance. That’s frustrating. It sends all data to a server to be encrypted. Not only does this increase cost and throughput but also impacts VPN-sensitive services like Netflix and Hulu so this content gets blocked. That’s even more frustrating because endpoint devices are often employed for both work and personal use. Ultimately, that means many legacy VPN users turn off the VPN leaving them open to security attacks.
