In an increasingly connected world, the separation between a person’s life as a private consumer and an employee is getting highly compressed.
In the modern workforce, we can work from home – or from any location that has internet access – more easily than ever.

Where we log in from, how we access resources and the devices we use are interchangeable and blur the line between these two formerly distinct parts of life.
The balance that IT managers and CISOs work to achieve is to give their users safe access without heavy-handed security measures impeding productivity.

In a word, to make security frictionless to the user.
