Zero Trust, Zero Nonsense: A Faster, More Practical Approach

The theory and concepts behind Zero Trust are now pretty clear. More than anything, businesses simply need easy, practical ways to take Zero Trust adoption one step at a time. So, how can your organization build a realistic plan to chip away at a security modernization journey? Sooner than they think. Transformation takes time, but adopting Zero Trust does not have to be so hard. The key is breaking it into manageable pieces.

Join Cloudflare executives and Zero Trust leaders for a half-day of stimulating discussions  as we address some of the challenges with implementing Zero Trust and share strategies for breaking it into manageable pieces. We will discuss ideas regarding:

  • What is necessary to provide simple, secure access to resources, maintain a great employee experience, and mitigate the risk of lateral movement – a favorite ransomware tactic?
  • How can companies empower IT with the SaaS visibility and security they deserve to better care for their employees, catching shadow IT before it spirals out of control?
  • How can leaders keep their workforce safe while browsing the open Internet with email security and DNS filtering, and implement measures like remote browsing to catch the missteps that almost slip through?
Why Attend?

See into the future of Zero Trust: Hear from Cloudflare’s SVP of Engineering, Usman Muzaffar, special guest Steve Pataky, Area 1 Security’s Head of Sales, and Tarika Srinivasan, Cloudflare’s Product Marketing Manager as they discuss how to start mapping a Zero Trust journey.

Learn from your peers: Get first-hand accounts of how to simply and effectively deploy a zero trust architecture to accelerate secure digital transformation.

Empower your IT and security teams: Experience how Cloudflare One uniquely delivers next-gen ZTNA capabilities to safeguard your organization from the most advanced attacks.
