VPNs will likely continue to be the weakest link in an organization's security infrastructure for some time to come. Implementing these recommended actions should help security teams minimize, and hopefully someday eliminate, the impact from outbreaks entering through the VPN. Although these methods will help to better defend your enterprise, they are by no means a substitute for an effective, comprehensive Threat Management strategy. Such a strategy must include prevention, discovery, assessment, detection, response and early warning. Implementing this strategy will provide a security team with the best chance of efficiently protecting your enterprise from existing and emerging threats.
