Is Your Zero Trust Evaluating the Right Identity?
Date: Tuesday, May 31st at 11am PT / 2pm ET
Ensuring a secure network is paramount to any organization. Zero trust network architecture (ZTNA), with its round-the-clock vigilance, monitoring and auditing of user accounts and its emphasis on the 'never trust, always verify' principle, is widely seen as an alternative to guard a modern workplace, which is still trying to find its order in the post-COVID chaos. But an important question remains unanswered: is ZTNA securing the right user accounts?
Authentication, despite forming the basis of every security strategy, cannot be overlooked as a minor cog in the wheel. With hybrid model of working being the norm, it is imperative for authentication to be context-aware, and sensitive to all unique userrelated cases. But at the same time, the leniency must not be extended to entities that show even a remote sign of malice.
Key takeaways from the webinar include:
- Making authentication granular yet frictionless
- Making verification passwordless by leveraging unique identity factors
- Deploying contextual authentication for a smarter Zero Trust strategy
- Authenticating the human and non-human identities of a network
