1:11 this alone

1:12 allows the network to identify the

1:14 problem and automatically decide on the

1:16 best and most effective group possible

1:29 vpn overhead and there's no loss in

1:32 available bandwidth for the application

1:36 experience to the user and this

1:38 technology ensures that each station is

1:40 secured

1:41 providing internet military-grade

1:43 security with the zero trust policy
