Cheatcodes to start your Zero Trust Program ZTNA and SSE by Aruba Networks

John Spiegel, Field CTO

Making the transition to a Zero Trust Security Strategy can be similar to adopting a new ERP solution. Just about every aspect of how you operate your business must be considered and evaluated. How do you close out the accounting books, what about the supply chain, and does IT have enough infrastructure to support the new system are a few of the questions you will be faced with

A better approach is to leverage small teams who can focus on key problems and provide the business with the outsized gains it craves for. How can this be done?  John Spiegel recently did a talk with two Global CISOs They recommended a different approach. Run your Zero Trust project through the eyes of the employee. Put the user experience first and foremost.
