The pandemic has put fantastic stress on many of the pillars of IT, including VPNs. Long relied upon to provide secure connectivity to remote corporate workers, they were adequate for the needs of 2019, but not necessarily for the mass of people relying on them through the pandemic. A particular point of weakness was the requirement that cloud services had...
