Today and tomorrow, more than ever, organizations of all sizes need highly effective security delivered via an Internet-native architecture that consistently bends and flexes to tackle the challenges of our current landscape, and that innovates at a pace to help you foresee what’s ahead. Join this vendor-agnostic session, where we’ll learn about how you can be equipped to face new emerging threats, with essential capabilities for business continuity, and scale instantly without worry:
— Why this is happening now: shifting your network and security infrastructure to the cloud and consolidating it into one composable services platform.
— How to evaluate: if a security platform is built on a trusted, resilient, and flexible zero trust network, architected for where networking is going.
