About the Content

Digital transformation is at the forefront for enterprising businesses that adapt to evolving conditions through innovation. Digitization promises to increase efficiency, enhance customer experience, boost revenue, and bolster a company’s competitive edge. Today, cloud technology is vital to successfully enacting digital transformation in any organization. That is why 70% of applications have already migrated to the cloud, and 60% of companies have already adopted cloud technology.

However, traditional hardware-laden corporate networks were not designed for cloud technology and therefore struggle to provide adequate application performance and security through any digital transformation process, yet cloud technology poses many advantages to an organization’s security needs due to the centralization of threat detection and mitigation. 

As organizations continue to migrate to the cloud, they must adapt network and security infrastructure as well, and that requires both WAN and security transformation. SASE, or Secure Access Service Edge, combines  comprehensive WAN edge functions and cloud-delivered security services to deliver peak application performance while maintaining secure access for cloud-first organizations. 

Come learn how to transform  network and security infrastructure to begin the journey towards a secure access service edge. 

Discussion Topics

  • Emerging security vulnerabilities associated with digital transformation on a modern network
  • Specific technological approaches to modernizing network infrastructure through SASE
  • How to easily evaluate and integrate with any cloud-delivered security service
  • Best practices to retain the agility to quickly and cost-effectively adopt best-of-breed security innovations in the continuously evolving and decentralized landscape 
  • Using automation to unify SD-WAN and cloud security to gain increased business agility and speed, while reducing complexity and cost by building consistent security architecture
  • Recommendations on how to begin your SASE journey
