With the impact of COVID-19 driving many organizations to rapidly evolve how they support remote work, IT organizations are under tremendous pressure to ensure they're managing risk effectively. Many on-premises apps are being accessed remotely for the first time, more employees are using personal devices for work, and the policies used to secure access and route network traffic are seeing entirely new trends in telemetry.

Come join guest speaker, Dr. Chase Cunningham, Principal Analyst of Security and Risk at Forrester, and Alex Weinert, Director of Identity Security at Microsoft, to learn how a Zero Trust security approach secures remote access to applications with dynamic access policies, protects all the devices accessing your network, and empowers employees with simpler, more productive experiences.
