How Zero Trust Network access improves business outcomes

Presented by

Fernando Serto, Director Security Technology & Strategy, Akamai

About this talk

Zero Trust is not a ‘trend’ - it’s here to stay. As enterprises and, in turn, employees, shifted to working from anywhere over the last 18 months, the fundamental definition of the enterprise perimeter was put to the test and the pace of Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) deployment accelerated rapidly. While the pandemic may have pushed deployment forward, this shift was bound to happen – not if but when. According to Gartner, Zero Trust Network Access improves the flexibility, agility, and scalability of application access, enabling digital businesses to thrive without exposing internal applications directly to the internet, reducing risk of attack. As part of this session, you’ll be able to take advantage of a brief walkthrough of an Akamai technical setup for securing internal applications. Join this session to hear our key takeaways from Zero Trust Network Access deployments globally and learn the following: - Why the traditional castle-and-moat security perimeters are not the way forward in securing your workforce and internal applications - What the key drivers that have propelled Zero Trust Network Access adoption for other organizations are - How your WAF, corporate applications, and support tools need to be assessed and setup while leveraging a cloud-based identity aware proxy like Zero Trust Network Access
