…Google says. Or they don’t actually say so, but their BeyondCorp approach to enterprise security certainly address it. Instead of building a perimeter sound enterprise network, they push security to whom shall access what without building a wall around it. I have tried to split this graphically in four as follows:
- Pre 2000 Corporate networks were closed and web services were “out there”.
- Next up was to connect to corporate networks over VPN or not.
- Close to the end of the first decade of 2k cloud was adapted for less critical corporate services.
- From 2015 Google and other tech-companies start to push for an even more network-open IT architecture. BeyondCorp and similar enterprise security approaches will certainly change the traditional perimeter of existing corporate network architectures, for small to large enterprises.
