Title: Software-defined Perimeter in a World of Zero Trust

Workforce mobility and widespread adoption of distributed data center and cloud environments have introduced significant access control complexities and threats. Organizations are questioning the efficacy of conventional, perimeter-based defenses and are now evaluating a “trust but verify” model. What are key enterprise considerations when deploying Zero Trust and Software-defined Perimeter (SDP) to enable seamless access, ensure business compliance and mitigate risk?
While consumers are getting desensitized to the incessant news of a given data breach and millions of identities lost to the dark web, enterprises face increased industry, regulatory and boardroom pressure to bolster their data protection measures. At an average loss of $4,000,000 USD per breach and potential fines upwards of 4% of gross revenue, progressing access security is among the top ten CIO initiatives.
The traditional fortress model with perimeter and layered defenses can no longer be relied upon in a world of sophisticated attacks and threat actors given the dynamics of a modern workforce, mobile and distributed apps, and virtualization across network and multi-cloud infrastructure.  Enterprises can no longer afford “connect, authenticate, and then access” visibility and control gaps. Zero Trust and Software-defined Perimeter offer compelling security by establishing trust by authenticating users and devices and securing connectivity directly to the application and resource.

This session provides a pragmatic deep-dive into the world of Zero Trust and explores the advantages, nuances and technologies behind Secure Access and Software Defined Perimeter.
At the Lunch and Learn with Pulse Secure you will learn:
* Where IT consumerization, virtualization and multi-cloud impacts access

* The interest, reasoning and mechanics beyond the Zero Trust adoption

* Why modern applications and usage must accommodate multi-trust models

* Assessing Zero Trust readiness and determining targeted implementation

* A flexible reference architecture for hybrid IT secure access
