Learn why a zero trust approach can more effectively stop attacks and protect cloud and data center workloads with SANS and Edgewise Networks.

Attackers rarely land on their intended target; more often, they piggyback on approved network addess-based controls to move laterally toward their final target. The growth of private and public cloud further reduces the trust and control defenders have over network. To stop attackers from compromising applications and data, defenders must enforce least-privilege access. But how?

when defenders can no longer trust the network, workload identity must be verified before applications can communicate and access sensitive data. This approach is at the core of Zero Trust security.

Join SANS analyst Dave Shackleford and Adam LeWinter of Edgewise Networks to learn how you can implement Zero Trust security in 3 simple steps:

* Visualize workload risk: Map application topology and reveal attack paths

* Protect workloads: Allow only verified applications, users, containers and hosts to communicate

* Monitor intended state: Detect changes to the environment and respond with targeted protection
