Surveying 500 global enterprises, IDC has found that legacy enterprise network architectures utilizing a perimeter-based approach to security are becoming obsolete. Given the realities of the enterprise network today—needing to serve and secure a highly distributed workforce and millions of devices and endpoints—a zero-trust model built on advanced DDI networking has become essential. Integrated DDI tools are key because they:
- Ensure that the DNS layer does not become a roadblock to enterprise network transformation, and support rapid scale up of operations and security measures.
- Enable direct connections of cloud-based applications, without requiring the traffic to backhaul—an essential capability for supporting a remote workforce.
- Provide underlying visibility and analytics into network traffic for performance and security monitoring and assurance.
