This track explores a holistic change in the way end-user services are delivered by IT, so you can empower your distributed workforce for today’s new normal. Explore the new future of the digital workspace.
Applications span multiple clouds, and apps and data flow continuously to an increasingly distributed workforce. The trusted perimeter is largely obliterated, exposing security that is often arbitrary and incomplete in the face of an expanding, evolving threat landscape.
The consensus is that a Zero Trust approach to network architecture is the optimal security posture, but operationalizing it across a heterogeneous infrastructure is no small task. Complete coverage can be achieved with a converged networking and security stack that puts security next to every workload, and protects all app-to-app communications—inside and among clouds.
Cloud workload protection, identity-based segmentation, secure cloud-to-cloud connectivity, and ubiquitous network threat prevention unite to secure the multi-cloud, deliver end-to-end security visibility with correlative workflows that maximize effective responses, and consolidate security functions for reduced CapEx and OpEx.
Distributed work is the new normal and many organizations have permanently changed the way they do business as a result.
Users want to be able to work from anywhere and benefit from network performance that is on-par with the in-office experience. IT leaders want to be able to offer seamless connectivity and optimized performance, while also ensuring consistent security—no matter where users are.
Secure access service edge (SASE) is the answer to these challenges. Combining cloud networking with cloud security, SASE offers numerous benefits including a cloud-first approach, intrinsic security, application quality assurance and operational simplicity through technologies such as SD-WAN, Zero Trust network access (ZTNA), cloud web security and AI for IT operations AIOPs.
