The stakes have never been higher for organizations to get cybersecurity right. There are many forces driving this sense of urgency: companies adding new cloud platforms, products, geographic regions, apps and web capabilities, not to mention securing the increasing number of remote workers because of the Covid-19 pandemic. With the increase in sophisticated cyber-attacks, security teams are under pressure to protect organizations while under-staffed, under-equipped and under budget.

In this session, we will discuss how businesses of all sizes can adopt a modern approach to cybersecurity with a consolidated architecture that fully automates preventing attacks before enterprise systems can be breached.
