About the Content

The pandemic accelerated digital transformation on a worldwide scale, encouraging the adoption of multi-cloud infrastructures that could support remote work and contactless commerce, and leaving enterprise networks more distributed than ever before. As organizations grapple with delivering better business outcomes and enhanced customer experiences, they’re also forced to adjust their security strategy to work within a software-defined enterprise. Amongst other initiatives, this means modernizing their VPN structure, implementing zero trust and reinforced identity access governance, and considering SASE to secure a sea of endpoints.

Our panel will discuss strategies for monitoring and safeguarding the performance of applications across distributed networks where the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data need protection. We’ll also cover  broader trends in security that are creating new challenges and opportunities for enterprises as they adopt a results-oriented approach to security.

We'll Discuss

  • Implementing Zero Trust Network Access and SASE solutions to secure the endpoint
  • Utilizing SD-WAN as the basis of IT networking 
  • Integrating the compute with security and networking for a more efficient, streamline organization
  • Connecting to applications through modernized VPNs
  • Tracing the evolution from digital enterprise and virtual enterprise to the software-defined enterprise of today
