This organization’s hundreds of acquired companies and other partners come with countless moving parts. It’s why they’re focused on simplifying and modernizing by migrating their applications from on-premises to the cloud. While this will ultimately make things easier, it requires a more modern security solution, one that could work without the limitations of a VPN, reduce complexity, and still allow them to improve their security posture enough to enable greater business freedom.
For years, Cardenas Markets used a traditional VPN for everyone: suppliers, employees, managers, partners, etc. The VPN provided secure access, but it wasn’t enough. A key issue was control: users were implicitly granted excess access to the network and other applications.

Similarly, though appropriate monitoring controls were implemented to identify insider and external threat events, the process to respond to such an event was not as real-time as desired.
