"As the vulnerability researcher who published the world’s first vulnerability in VPNs over twenty-two years ago, it’s unfathomable to think that VPNs are still in use today when more secure alternatives are available. Is it simply convenience in the fact that it’s offered in the very unified threat management (UTM) solutions already being used on the edge of the network that makes it an acceptable risk to companies or are companies simply just aware of the risk posed to their business by using VPNs?" - Alissa Knight, Former CISO, Recovering Hacker
