If you are not familiar with Digital Experience Monitoring (DEM), put simply, it is a tool to measure the performance of the application user/device, the network path and the application. The concept is to gain a view into how the device/user to application interaction is performing. As performance can be degraded by a number of issues; high CPU on a device, a bad software patch, poor wi-fi, poor Internet performance or an over utilized application front end load balancer to name a few, finding the needle in the technology haystack is a difficult challenge for the modern enterprise. This became even more apparent over the last 24 months with the rise of the distributed workforce. Now both applications and the workforce live outside the walls of the modern enterprise company. Thus, having a tool to measure digital experience is no longer a want or desire. It is a requirement!

Two words will reshape the industry over the next several years. Modern workplace. This term means many things to different audiences. To some this is an emphasis on using platforms like Microsoft Teams, or Zoom for collaboration at work.

VIDEO: ZTNA vs VPN
With the emergence of remote work, IT leaders have had to react quickly, many decide to simply buy more VPNs. Now years later, 77% of companies will make hybrid work a permanent fixture. They're looking for better alternatives for application connectivity. The new reality is that user experience is key to productivity. Ransomware has grown 500% year over year, and VPNs are one of the largest culprits because they allow network access. The constant game of adding hardware appliances and managing that infrastructure is becoming more expensive from a CapEx and OPEX perspective.
6 Questions IT Leaders Are Asking About Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA)
Given the need to support hybrid work, Gartner heavily recommends that IT leaders consider a Security Service Edge (SSE) platform for the practical implementation of a zero trust strategy. An SSE platform largely incorporates these main technologies into a single offering: ZTNA, SWG, and CASB. Gartner recommends that SSE implementation should begin by prioritizing high areas of risk by replacing remote access VPN with a modern ZTNA solution. In fact, Gartner predicts that by 2023, 60% of enterprises will phase out VPN technologies in favor of ZTNA.
