What Is Direct Connect, Exactly?

Like most businesses, your employees, aka users, rely on the Internet to connect to your business applications to perform their daily tasks. If they’re doing this via a public Internet connection, there are risks involved. These types of scenarios relate to vulnerabilities like hacking, viruses, and/or possibly leaking private customer data.

Situations like these are the very reason why it is so important to bypass a public Internet connection and go with a business-grade private line connection to ensure your data is secure and that the connections are reliable; especially as the data traverses between business applications and services from the cloud back to the office.
