Merge Security and Networking or Close Your Business

Presented by

John Cavanaugh, VP and CTO, NetCraftsmen

About this talk

Gartner’s 2019 Architecture on the Secure Access Services Edge (SASE) set the stage for closing the gaps in security created by the distributed environment created with the deployment of Wide Area Networks over public infrastructure (created with IPsec and SD-WAN). This was underlined and emphasized with Forrester’s 2021 paper on the Zero Trust Network Edge. The Forrester paper also directed Enterprises to merge their networking and security teams or ‘Sunset Your Business’. While one could view this statement as hyperbole, in reality it does not go far enough. • IT Silo’s complicate security and network connectivity • The Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA) requires a risk based approach to protecting data and this involves new ways of thinking about identity, privileged access, segmentation and defense • Enterprises need to migrate to an ‘All of Enterprise’ approach to security and this will involve more than just the network and security teams • IT Culture will need to change and we will explore how to solve both the organizational and technological issues facing Business and IT Leaders today
