One of the business scenarios that I face is that often our teams need to access client systems, which are made available after whitelisting IP addresses. In traditional environments, even when operating behind a VPN, normally the external-facing endpoint was not just an IP, it would normally be a network, which often is a challenge when asked to provide one single IP for whitelisting.
Currently, with fully could-based businesses, with 0 infrastructure, there is no VPN to connect to. Most teams are connected directly to the internet and sharing private connections with public IPs not only is not the right thing to do but also is not sustainable when it comes to business continuity.
I often go back to the thinking where I can use virtual desktops or DaaS to address this gap, but is this the only way, or are there other ways to address these challenges?
How are you addressing these challenges?
