As we look for ways to secure these endpoints, it is becoming immediately clear that traditional enterprise security solutions deployed inside the organization's network are completely ineffective in protecting these remote endpoints. The sheer volume of remote endpoints connecting over VPN gateways is already creating a lot of bandwidth pressure, adding large security updates delivered to thousands of endpoints is becoming impractical.
