Webinar: Using Zero Trust to Enable Secure Remote Access

When it comes to securing remote access, the Zero Trust concept has its appeal. More of a philosophy than a set of procedures, Zero Trust requires a holistic look at security within an organization. But is it a practical approach for every company? What are the potential challenges to implementing it? How does it apply to securing the Internet of Things? What role might AI play in a Zero Trust approach?

This webcast explores those and other Zero Trust questions and provides guidance on defining trusted users and devices and how to integrate identity and network access controls. It will address how to build a business case for Zero Trust, and addresses business drivers such as cloud environments and business continuity needs.

Join Dave Shackleford, SANS Senior Instructor and Rich Thompson, BlackBerry VP of Sales Engineering, as they discuss these topics and the future of Zero Trust.
