Session Details

"IT Security in the Hybrid World" w/ Randy Marchany

The hybrid work world has required us to change our security architectures to adapt to an environment where organizations have limited visibility to endpoints. This shift incorporates strategies involving zero trust principles, moving away from network-basedIDS/IPS as line speeds increase, and vulnerability management/scanning of external networks. The era of corporate network boundaries is ending.
