In episode 3, we’re taking a practical look at how businesses and IT teams can implement successful SASE models.

    Join us to learn:

    - Practical insights into how to implement SASE into your security stack
    - How SASE enables business to intelligently adapt to the evolving risk landscape
    - What real-world SASE and Zero-Trust approaches look like
    - How SASE can deliver seamless and secure transition from office to home
    - How SASE can extend security to all edges: branches, people, clouds

    "Beyond SASE, SCAPE: Secure Cloud Access and Policy Enforcement" Research Series

    How should an enterprise measure how well its SASE is performing?
    As you deploy the cluster of technologies coming collectively to be known as SASE, as well as technologies beyond SASE, it is crucial to ask:
    - How are we doing?
    - Is this investment delivering the value it should?

    Join Nemertes as we begin exploring our latest round of research data on how enterprises are securing access to internal and external clouds, as well as enforcing policy independent of where users and resources are.

    Episode one of this series will focus on our success metric for quantifying the value delivered by these security solutions, SIPI:
    - What is SIPI?
    - Why SIPI is the right metric to look at
    - How SIPI relates to our overall security success metric, the MTTC

  • [Ep.1]: Introducing SASE: The Secure Network for the Digital Business Recorded: Mar 4 2021 51 mins
    Yishay Yovel - CMO, Cato Networks and John Burke - CTO and Principal Research Analyst, Nemertes Research
    Secure access service edge or SASE (pronounced “sassy”), is the ‘future of network security in the cloud’ according to Gartner’s report of the same name from August 2019. With Gartner also predicting that “by 2024, at least 40% of enterprises will have explicit strategies to adopt SASE, up from less than 1% at year-end 2018”, it’s safe to say that now is the time for business, technology and and security leaders to get acquainted with what the SASE security model can do for their businesses.

    SASE has emerged from the fact that current network solutions and technologies no longer provide the security and access control that companies in the digital age not just need, but demand. With increased remote working due to the pandemic, more organizations than ever are ‘always on’ and using the cloud, and so a Zero-Trust approach is now a must. With users requiring uninterrupted, secure and instant access to their SaaS applications and digital services, SASE has risen to meet this need.

    In episode 1 of Cato’s 'Superpowered SASE: Network Transformation in 2021' series, we’re bringing together SASE experts to share what’s behind its meteoric rise and what is essential for the modern business to know about this converged, cloud-delivered platform.

    Join us to hear:
    - What SASE is - and what it isn’t
    - What the user, technology and customer benefits of implementing a SASE security model are
    - The trends driving SASE growth and what they mean for the future
    - Essential strategic insights into how best to implement SASE
    - Why SASE is essential for future proofing your network and transforming your IT
    - And more

    Customer Engagement Transformation {Ep.3] 5 Steps to Self-Service Success

    CX leaders want to improve their self-service capabilities to accomplish key goals: Get customers what they need without having to wait for a live agent; and offload agent interaction volume.

    Ultimately, they want to improve the customer experience, achieve higher CSAT, and drive more revenue to the company.

    But companies often have challenges establishing a successful self-service strategy. We have conducted research on what makes a self-service success, and will address these issues:

    *Why don't more customers use our self-service knowledge base?
    *How can AI virtual assistants improve adoption?
    *What are the concerns with using AI in self-service, and how can we hedge against them?
    *What should I expect my self-service transaction volume to be?
    *What are the benefits of using self-service?

    We'll provide 5 essential steps to making your self-service strategy successful.

  • Is Now the Time to Move Your Contact Center to the Cloud? Recorded: Oct 29 2020 58 mins
    Robin Gareiss, President and Founder, Nemertes Research
    Customer experience (CX) is undergoing a transformation at nearly two-thirds of organizations. CX leaders are adding applications, revamping agent experience, and re-thinking contact center architecture—a key foundational decision that will affect almost every aspect of an innovative strategy.

    The pandemic-driven, work-from-home shift that took place starting in March 2020 placed architecture discussions at the forefront. At issue is the inherent complexity and customization of on-premises contact centers, making them the most challenging to move to the cloud. Despite those challenges, most companies are moving their on-premises contact centers to hybrid cloud environments to hedge the risks—and associated costs—of not being able to support work-from-anywhere agents.

    This webinar addresses top-of-mind questions of CX leaders running on-premises contact centers, and provides a roadmap for taking advantage of the cloud, either partially or fully. Nemertes Research President Robin Gareiss will address the following questions, backed by real-world research data:
    · What have we learned from the pandemic that could affect your architecture decision?
    · Why can it be hard to move on-premises contact centers to the cloud?
    · What are the hidden costs to your business of remaining on prem?
    · Aside from the applications themselves, what should you consider regarding workflows, agent experience, and integrations?
    · What are reasonable approaches toward realizing benefits of the cloud—such as scalability, global reach, and flexibility—while not marginalizing the advances made on-premises?
    · What are the first steps you should take to determine whether a full or partial move to the cloud is right for your organization?
    · What benefits can you expect with more functional IVRs, video capabilities, new channels, and quick set-up globally?

    Join this webinar brought to you by Lifesize, presented Robin on October 29, 2020 for a lively discussion.
