  • Reconceptualizing traditional ideas of how to approach security within the enterprise and shifting the business mindset

Intended for any executive, middle manager or grassroots influencer, this is an inspirational message for all levels of leadership!

Organizations are feeling a shift in the world of networking and security as they rapidly adopt and embrace the cloud. Enterprises need efficiency, visibility and security without compromise.

In this session, you will discuss:

  • Problems SASE can address in the modern enterprise
  • Benefits of planning both SASE and zero trust implementations
  • How to best position your organization for this transition

Smart organizations are infusing the intelligence of AI and the agility of hybrid cloud to better predict and shape future outcomes and automate decisions and processes. As a result, organizations can empower people to do higher value work and hyper-personalize digital experiences. However, only 2 of 10 firms have scaled AI solutions.

Join this boardroom to discuss:

  • Preventing project stall due to data complexity, talent scarcity, and a lack of trust in AI systems
  • Scaling AI across the organization with the right approach and architecture
  • Leveraging AI technologies and data science tools to proactively optimize workflows and experiences
