The Business Value of a SASE, Zero-Trust Journey

With people working remotely and most user traffic destined for SaaS and cloud, network security requires transformation. It’s no longer efficient or cost-effective to route traffic through the corporate network to apply security controls. Adopting a Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) Architecture while focusing on Zero-Trust principles ensures that your employees can be productive and secure working from anywhere.

In this session, we will discuss:

  • The economics and business case for a SASE journey
  • Best practices for implementing Zero Trust within a SASE architecture
  • The importance of granular Cloud and SaaS visibility in a SASE architecture

9:45am - 10:30am  Executive Boardroom

Accelerating Business Value During a Digital Talent Drought

According to Gartner, 7 out of 10 boards have demanded digital acceleration in a disrupted global climate. But facing a widespread scarcity of digital workers and the need to retrain employees for digital scaling, how is your organization meeting the challenge? Join your peers in this interactive discussion on how to strategically address the digital skills gap, secure talent for value creation and increase employee engagement. Among the key talking points:

  • Pulling the right levers to expand digital business and increase digital maturity
  • The role of the CIOs is securing, inspiring and nurturing top talent and top partners
  • Competing for talent management to scale digital and agile programs


Executive boardrooms are intimate and interactive sessions designed to foster dynamic dialogue around a specific, strategic topic. These private, closed-door discussions encourage attendee participation and are limited to 15 attendees (seating priority is given to CIOs).

  • Gain visibility into all of your SaaS apps (including those owned by business units)
  • Understand the barriers to engagement and how to craft an environment that results in productivity and innovation for employees
  • Maximize your IT resources and budget

Smart organizations are fueling their operations with the power of data and AI. Through integrated technologies, a data fabric architecture enables dynamic and intelligent data flows and orchestration across any enterprise to create a network of instantly available information, empower people to do higher value work, and hyper-personalize digital experiences. However, only 2 of 10 firms have scaled their transformation and technology solutions.

Join this boardroom to discuss:

  • Preparing your workforce for a date-first world
  • Improving business outcomes through data-driven decisions and innovation
  • How data and AI can deliver instant benefits to your organization today
