10:00 AM Harnessing the Power of the Edge

Gartner’s secure access service edge (SASE) framework outlines the convergence of networking and security capabilities to create an effective and secure edge. The cybersecurity concept emphasizes the need for vendor rationalization to reduce complexity while increasing visibility and ease of management. This session takes a real-world look at some of the groundwork necessary for fitting into this new model for a better user experience, increased reliability of your services, and increased security for all your web-facing business functions.

  • Understand the top 6 benefits of a SASE framework for IT and security leaders
  • Learn how you may have already started your SASE journey with your existing solutions and determine how projects you’ve already accomplished fit into the overall SASE model.
  •  Identify your company’s definition of the edge - how you view your boundaries will determine which tools you need for your strategy.
  •  Discover how to build out a business case for the budget and get buy-in from key stakeholders.
