Since the global coronavirus pandemic transformed the paradigm of work from being “a thing you do, not a place you go”, the term secure service edge (SSE) has exploded to the forefront of the security marketplace to handle the massive escalation of hybrid working models. Accordingly, various technology vendors and service providers are ready to offer the most complete framework and the smoothest roadmap towards harnessing the various features.
This webinar aims to showcase a different approach aimed at making SSE work for users rather than vendors: advocating the primacy of use cases in driving any security transformation, let alone adopting the SSE framework. As a specialist security services provider, Orange Cyberdefense aims to offer solutions to our customers’ challenges, not simply to build a technology adoption roadmap for its own sake.
In this webinar we will look at how to handle the trade-offs involved in driving a SSE-related project. For example, on one hand a broad SSE transformation can simplify your supply chain and boost usability with a single agent and a single interface for tools such as CASB, DLP and SWG – saving money over the lifespan of the project. But on the other hand, this will come at a higher immediate financial cost than (for example) replacing your old VPN like-for-like. Decisions taken now can have ramifications years in advance, adding to the total cost of ownership if handled inappropriately.
As well as highlighting the importance of taking an agnostic approach in selecting the most appropriate technology to underpin your SSE transformation, and why Orange Cyberdefense has identified Netskope as a best-of-breed-partner in performing this role, this webinar will look at some of the key use cases that can drive a SSE transformation. For example:
Richard Davis leads Cybersecurity Strategy at Netskope across the EMEA region. He provides insights and expertise, country by country, on cyber resilience and defences such as cloud security, Security Services Edge and risk management.
