Digital Transformation, Cloud Security & Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) in an Uncertain World
(Interview hosted between Anna Delaney, ISMG, and James Wilde, Forcepoint)
Mathew Schwartz – Executive Editor, ISMG / James Wilde – Director – User Protection, EMEA, Forcepoint
Here we are in the second half of 2020: The push to rapidly adopt more cloud and mobility services, as well as increased working from home, have been driving radical IT changes – and too often pushing security architectures to the breaking point. To succeed, organizations must find ways to drive high levels of productivity for remote employees, while also maintaining and monitoring applications and protecting data, no matter where it flows.
Enter digital transformation, backed by increasing adoption of cloud-based services and new Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), which is fast becoming a must-have element for the next phase of organizations’ cybersecurity journey. Done right, cloud services and SASE can reduce IT management overhead, facilitate enhanced collaboration and productivity for all employees, and streamline regulatory compliance.
But as with digital transformation, if organizations approach this in the wrong manner, it may complicate their ability to maximize the potential productivity payoffs from cloud applications, as well as the increased security offered by better coordinating secure web gateways, cloud access security brokers, data loss prevention, advanced threat protection and more.
What is the ideal digital transformation, cloud adoption and SASE roadmap? What are potential speedbumps along the way? And how has the global pandemic changed the imperative for how organizations pursue these changes?
Please join ISMG’s Mathew Schwartz for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on digital transformation, and cloud and SASE maturity, how to achieve it, and how to measure their own organizations’ progress.
Discussion topics will include:
- What is your digital transformation, cloud and SASE roadmap?
- Where is your organization today in this journey – and how have your priorities shifted this year?
- What does digital transformation, cloud service and SASE maturity look like?
Joining Mathew to provide expert insight and case studies is James Wilde, Director – User Protection, EMEA, at Forcepoint.
