Speech Topic & Synopses
Why Integrated Endpoint-to-Cloud Security is Essential

With users now working from anywhere, your data follows them.  To securely tap into this productivity, you need secure access service edge (SASE), delivering security in the cloud like you still have a perimeter.  But existing SASE technologies are invasive and clash with the user’s expectation of privacy when working remotely.  It’s only when you integrate endpoint security with SASE that can you protect your users and your data in a manner that respects personal privacy.

  • From data centers to the cloud, organisations own a complex collection of apps to support work from anywhere
  • VPNs enable access but undermine security
  • Employees are using devices, software and networks you don’t control
  • Employees also now expect their personal privacy to be respected
  • Integrated endpoint-to-cloud security is essential to safeguard data and users, while complying with regulations and respecting personal privacy.
