Legacy security strategies and technologies simply haven't lived up to the hype. If they did, 2017 wouldn't have been the year of a billion records stolen. The security industry needs strategy now more than ever; throwing technology at the problem simply isn't going to stop the threats. Microsegmentation has come to light recently as a "new" area of innovation for cybersecurity, and it can be incredibly effective if it is done right. However, despite industry-accepted nomenclature, "microsegmentation" doesn't just mean perimeterizing your network with a bunch of firewalls and letting traffic inside that new perimeter communicate freely. This premise that "inside is 'good' and outside is 'bad'" is significantly outdated; any new strategy or technology must incorporate zero trust networking principles. Zero trust requires organizations to change the way they think about what's allowed to communicate on the network, regardless of where the perimeter (ephemeral as it may be) is placed.
In this webinar we will explore different aspects of zero trust-based microsegmentation, explain how it should play into your overall cybersecurity strategy, and discuss how using these innovations can help your team "put the monster in a box" and gain ground against the adversary.
